  1. 1. Using Google ToolsEnabling learning for yourself and your students
  2. 2. Controlling the flow Push vs. Pull Curating Peeking in Using the cloud photo by Vincent van der Pas: http://www.flickr. com/photos/archetypefotografie/3629047091/
  3. 3. Push vs. Pull: Google Reader Bringing information to you Ability to save, share Easy to use
  4. 4. Lets Try It! Go to google.com/reader Create account or use existing gmail account Two ways to subscribe "Add a subscription" button "RSS Feed" buttons on web sites Now things come to you (pushed) rather than you having to find them
  5. 5. Curating Finding credible sources that collect tools (someone elses curation) http://www.freetech4teachers.com/ http://www.hackeducation.com http://teachpaperless.blogspot.com/ Organizing what you have (your own curation) Folders/tags Search Recommendations/play
  6. 6. Peeking In Easy to glance at headlines and excerpts Star to save for later Not like e-mail--you dont *have* to read everything Mark all as read is your friend photo by apdk: http://www.flickr. com/photos/62337512@N00/3462994716/
  7. 7. The cloud: Google Docs Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Presentations, Drawings, Forms Work at the office, work at home. No uploading required.
