During the large group session, the staff was invited to join the presentation online and follow along. What is nice about the Google Presentation tool is that it has a chat column that the audience can use for questions or comments. During the presentation I made the comment that students want to create and be active participants with technology and not just click links and watch. The comment/chat column in the Google Presentation is really great because it allows the audience to do more than watch and listen. There was a running commentary/dialogue that was approximately following the presentation and adding insights along the way. I thought everyone was very well behaved...was it because they were actively participating? Hmmmm.
There were a dozen or so staff members that jumped in and I decided to post some of the comments and chat topics during the presentation.
has it ' s own youtube channel now .
- There is some research out there that argues wikipedia is more accurate than an encyclopedia...I read a study where a person made over 30 deliberate mistakes, and theywere all corrected within an hour
' ve been using docs to get my ski team to sign in for races . It ' s pretty cool
- For our ALC team meeting notes, I type them in Google docs, and then we all have accessto them at all times - and can make additions, as necessary.
cool thing is that I can actually edit the document or make notes right on theirs as they type they like that immediate response
google docs has a tool call revision history, too. So that if there was an innapropriateaddition to a document you can actually fetch back to the time before they added thatcontent and delete it.
- Sean and I used Google docs to write behavior contracts - we were both editing at the sametime. Worked perfectly.
