Tool # 4
I used Google Doc to create a doc indicating 3 areas of fluency: punctuation, expression, and phrasing. I shared this with Jenny Meyer - Meyer's Muse. I feel the Google Docs provide you with an easy way to collaborate with various people and share things in a more simplified way. The Google Reader is great since it allows you to view all of your favorite blogs in a quick manner. Both Google Doc & Reader could be so useful in the classroom. When students are studying a particular topic in social studies they could select blogs that they frequently review for content. Also, the ability to share & collaborate with many kids at once is great. The features allows students to participate in learning 24-7-365 as the mentioned in the video. How wonderful!
