  • 11. GOOGLE DOCS GOOGLE DOCS IS A GOOGLE PRODUCT DESIGNED TO BE AN ONLINE OFFICE SUITE. THESE DOCUMENTS CAN BE EDITED SIMULTANEOUSLY BY MULTIPLE USERS. GOOGLE DOCS CAN BE A GOOD OPTION FOR PRIVATE, COLLABORATIVE WORKSPACES.
  • 12. SOCIAL NETWORKING SOCIAL NETWORKS ARE WEBSITES DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE TO CONNECT WITH OTHER PEOPLE. FACEBOOK IS THE MOST POPULAR SOCIAL NETWORK AT WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY. PUTTING COURSE INFORMATION IN FACEBOOK MEANS STUDENTS WILL INTERACT WITH IT MORE OFTEN.

  • 16. COMMENTS & FEEDBACK
  • 17. FEEDBACK: EASE OF USE “I THINK THAT USING PROGRAMS SUCH AS GOOGLE DOCS MAKES ASSIGNMENTS AND PROJECTS EASIER FOR BOTH THE TEACHER AND STUDENT. TEACHERS CAN VIEW ASSIGNMENTS AT ANY TIME AND MAKE COMMENTS OR CORRECTIONS AND STUDENTS CAN VIEW FEEDBACK AND INCORPORATE IT EASILY. “THE BLOGS ARE ALSO USEFUL AS A HOMEPAGE FOR COURSES AS THEY ALLOW ONE CENTRAL PLACE FOR UPDATES, RESPONSES, COURSE SCHEDULING, ETC... AND THEY ARE QUICKLY UPDATED. THEY ARE ALSO EASY FOR THE STUDENTS TO LOCATE AND NAVIGATE.” -KAELEY MCMAHAN
  • 18. FEEDBACK: ENGAGING STUDENTS “THE TURNING POINT “CLICKERS” DO WELL AT ENGAGING THE STUDENTS, AND THEY SEEM TO REALLY LIKE IT.” -MARY BETH LOCK “TECHNOLOGY CAN OFFER OPTIONS THAT ALLOW ME TO ADDRESS THE VARIOUS LEARNING STYLES OF MY STUDENTS IN A MEANINGFUL AND ENGAGING WAY.” -LIB100 TEACHER
  • 19. FEEDBACK: SOCIAL SOFTWARE “THE STUDENTS ARE COMFORTABLE WITH USING SOCIAL SOFTWARE AND I FIND IT ALLOWS US TO CONCENTRATE ON CONTENT.” -SUSAN S. SMITH “ENGAGING STUDENTS IN ONLINE SOCIAL SPHERES GIVES US THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS ONLINE BEHAVIOR WITH STUDENTS. WE ARE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT PRIVACY, PROFESSIONALISM, AND HOW SOCIAL NETWORKING MIGHT IMPACT THEIR ADULT LIVES IN WAYS THAT WOULD BE ARTIFICIAL WITHOUT THE SOCIAL NETWORKING CLASS COMPONENT.“ -LAUREN PRESSLEY
  • 20. FEEDBACK: GOOGLE DOCS “GOOGLE DOCS HAS FACILITATED NUMEROUS ACADEMIC UNDERTAKINGS, INCLUDING GROUP PLANNING FOR A NEW COURSE, COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS FOR STUDENTS, WORKING IN SMALL GROUPS, AND COLLABORATIVE GRADING OF STUDENT PROJECTS SUBMITTED AS GOOGLE DOCS.” -ELLEN DAUGMAN
