David's Top 10 Google Tips

  1. 1. Compiled by: David A. Carmichael<br />
  2. 2. # 10<br />Get around blocked sites.<br />Ever found a GREAT article/picture/etc. after all the blocks are lifted at school (or on a home laptop), and wanted to show it the next day in class, only to find that website is blocked?<br />Just type "cache:website address" with website address being the address of the blocked site to use Google’s cached copy to get where you are going.<br />
  3. 3. # 9<br />Create a Google Custom Search Engine.<br />Ever needed to help students get “a leg up” in starting an assignment correctly?<br />What better way than by beginning with your own pre-set search engine, powered by Google?<br />
  4. 4. # 8<br />Make a study group with Google Groups<br />Have an assignment that students might want to work on at home, in addition to the classroom?<br />How about a project that they could work on independently, but share information on for a group project?<br />This tool allows easy sharing between students with convenience and portability.<br />
  5. 5. # 7<br />Create online surveys for research projects<br /><ul><li>Want to give a short quiz, but don’t want to keep up with 200 pieces of paper?
  6. 6. Google Docs allows this, using this function.
  7. 7. Great tool for quick formative assessments!</li></li></ul><li># 6<br />Incorporate Google Calendar and Docs<br />Want to remind the students<br /> when assignments/projects are<br /> due electronically? Try placing<br /> this on your school webpage!<br />
  8. 8. Reopen a closed tab.<br /> Oops! If you didn’t mean to close that tab, just press Ctrl+Shift+T to reopen it.<br />I’m pretty sure we’ve all done this a FEW times! Saves time by not having to locate in the history!<br /># 5<br />
  9. 9. # 4<br />Use the bookmarks manager.<br />Stay organized, rearrange bookmarks, search for bookmarks, add folders, and much more with the bookmark manager.<br />
  10. 10. Create a personalized library<br />Click on "Add to my shared library" to start your own personalized library where you can label books to keep them organized for each class or project.<br />Having students be able to quickly locate online texts saves time AND energy!<br /># 3<br />
  11. 11. # 2<br />Use the Tasks as a to-do list.<br />Use the Tasks available in Gmail as a way to stay on top of assignments, exams, and project due dates.<br />This helps you, the teacher, AND the students!<br />
  12. 12. And the #1 TIP for Teachers…<br />Google Squared<br />Save time and energy by quickly finding facts and being able to manipulate and organize the data quickly and professionally using this feature.<br />
