  1. Week 4 – Learning and Teaching Tools 1a

    May 24, 2010 by Lynn

    What a busy week this has been for learning – lots of new resources too. 

    FUSE – Learning and teaching content and will obviously have to spend a lot more time exploring it’s many resources. 

     Google Sites (creating websites) is not something that I would use but I could perhaps see it as being a useful tool for family wanting to share information (wonder if I could re-do the family tree using this now I think about it – something to explore). 

    Google Docs was very interesting and something that I’m keen to use more, especially if it means I can forget about learning Excel! I was fortunate to attend Jenny Luca’s Elluminate session this week about Google Docs and this really helped in my understanding of how it can be used and I also gained some new ‘friends’ who were also attending. 

    Google for Educators is another site to show staff,  Google Earth and Google Maps are used already but Google Lit Trips is a great idea.  

    Flickr I have used before for sourcing images (particularly Creative Commons images) but this time I uploaded a few photos as well. 

    Wallwisher, Gliffy, bubbl.us and Essay Map were all new to me but I can see myself using some of these straight away.  I had fun showing them to some students today and  will also show them in one of my ICTuesday sessions for staff.
