In the Classroom

Take advantage of these free courses to brush up your computer and technology skills. Share links to specific tutorials with students for use with classroom projects. For example, share the Google Docs course with students to help them learn how to use and manage Google Drive, documents, and complete basic tasks. Be sure to share tips with parents too for their personal use. Consider sharing a section of a course each week on your website for students to learn about various tools in bite-sized pieces. For a more immersive learning experience, use Curipod, reviewed here, to create a learning path for students that includes information from this site along with YouTube videos, quizzes, and links to other learning resources. Extend student learning further by asking them to create their tutorials based on class needs. If your class is having difficulties organizing and sharing information within Google Drive, for example, ask knowledgeable students to create an explainer video using Clipchamp, reviewed here, to use as a guide.
