  38. 38. Google Philosophy Focus on the user and all else will follow. It's best to do one thing really, really well. Fast is better than slow. Democracy on the web works. You don't need to be at your desk to need an answer. You can make money without doing evil. There's always more information out there. The need for information crosses all borders. You can be serious without a suit. Great just isn't good enough.
  39. 39. Google Philosophy Applied in the Library Media Center: Focus on the student and all else will follow. Democracy in the library works. You don't need to be in the library to need an answer. There's always more information out there. The need for information crosses all borders. You can be serious without a suit. Great just isn't good enough.
  40. 40. Google Search Tips to Share With Your Students/Staff… You can type define: and a word and it will show you dictionary definition. You can also type math calculations into the google search box; it is also a calculator. You can type in a barcode number and then look it up! In google language translator you can type in the whole website address and it will translate the whole page. For some big sites, you even get a search box within (like the NY Times).
  41. 41. Google Search… Did You Know That- Phonebook:name place - get someone’s phone number. Google maps for directions shows you traffic too and you can drag the route to another road; instantly recalculates directions. Shows construction and accidents. Click on cameras next to directions to see street view. You can pan around too. In preferences you can turn on/off porn filtering. quot;I'm feeling luckyquot; means just take me to the top search result - it will go right to the website. Maximum number of words in a search is 10. Plurals matter. For some organizations, they give you a table of contents in the results. This is relatively new. Asterisk is the wildcard - great for song lyrics that you can't understand (excuse me while I kiss the *)
  42. 42. Ideas for Using Google Docs in Your Library Staff meeting agendas and follow up notes Teacher/Librarian planning Share a book wish list with teachers and students Students can write a collaborative story. One student writes the beginning and then another add the second paragraph. The third adds to it and so on and on. Group planning for research projects become simple and transparent. Each member can contribute their information and you can view the revision history anytime. Google Docs is great for collaborative brainstorming - every idea is included. Instead of saving Word files onto a jump drive or emailing back and forth, the student can work on a document on Google docs and access it from school and home. They will always have access to it and you won't hear quot;I forgot it at homequot; or quot;I have a different program at homequot;. Have your students create a library newsletter. Invite various students to work on the document at the same time. Collaborative note taking.

  48. 48. Google Presentation Google Presentation is not quite robust a presentation program as PowerPoint or Keynote but students can create their entire presentation online and work on it with group members or access it from home/school. Instead of my students sitting passively watching a student's PowerPoint presentation, a presenter publishes their presentation online. 100% engagement in the presentation and they handle the responsibility of being in the chat room well (it only takes one student to get kicked out and the rest shape up fast!). YOU can embed YOUR presentations in online project websites so that students can access them from anywhere.

Does it improve communication skills? Are students accountable? Does it improve student collaboration? Does it help students communicate globally? Does it help students deal with massive amounts of information? Does it teach our students to be self-directed and understand how to organize more of their own learning? --Dr. Howard DiBiasi
