Digital Learning Day is March 13th. Here are ten things to try. All compliments of Google.
1-Use Google Timer to time activities in the classroom
2-Unsend an email
3-Create and Use the built in Task Feature (Google’s To-Do List)
4-Add new fonts to Google Docs.
5-Do Smarter Google Searches Tailored to your exact needs.
6-Find Lesson Plans sorted by App, Subject and Grade Level.
7-Explore Museums and curate your own gallery with the Google Art Project or explore the Google Cultural Institute
With Google Cultural Institute you can find landmarks and world heritage sites, as well as digital exhibitions that tell stories behind the archives of cultural institutions across the globe.
8-Create playlists in You Tube for use in class.
You Tube is owned by Google and you already have You Tube account. If you regularly use You Tube videos in class, you may want to create a playlist with different topics to help organize them.
9-Manage your classes with Google Classroom
Google Classroom helps teachers create, assign, and collect student classwork and homework paperlessly. More Google Classroom resources here
10-Finally understand what Google+ is. Join/follow communities related to your interests and/or communicate with fellow colleagues.
