http://knol.google.com/ allows user to construct a specialized unit of knowledge as an introductory informative article. The articles are typically in greater depth than a web page and more formal than a blog. Articles should be concise, similar to a text book. Online instruction and guidance is available for authors.

In a classroom: How?

Web based supplement to instruction (content specific), facilitates collaboration with subject matter experts. Free access and easy to use. 


= Google Earth

http://earth.google.com/intl/en/  Google Earth lets the user 'fly' anywhere on earth to view satellite imagrery, maps, buildings and 3 dimensional terrain. You can explore geographical content, save your places and share with others.

In a classroom: How?

One application of Google Earth is to create simulations or a virtual sandtable where students can apply knowledge about a situation to a virtual reproduction of the incident. For example; wildland firefighters can increase their decision making skills working through a Google Earth sandtable. This technique could also be used by history teachers by setting up virtual civil war battle fields. The applications are endless. dkk

In a classroom: How?


G =

A collaborative way to edit documents. Users with an account can share the editing/saving/revising/etc of a document (much like a wiki). GoogleDocs records all changes so the group can also revert back to previous versions of the document or look at individual changes from previous visits to the site. For more information or to create an account visit http://documents.google.com or watch this clip:





In a classroom: How?

A way for people to collaborate on text projects asynchronously. It is limited to text and can be overwhelming because it does track ALL changes. I have found it works well for rubric or bulleted editing since there is less text and the items are short and separated. It would be cumbersome in a narrative document


G = Google Maps 

LA web mappying application provided by Google. Find address, get directions from where you are, find businesses located near an address look at maps in terrain, satellite or street view.

In a classroom: How?

Look here for suggestions. Good for geography lesson, learning to give directions, pinpoint places, outline a route, tell a story, and more.



G =Google Reading


Welcome to Google Reader


Google Reader helps you find and keep track of interesting stuff on the web. You can subscribe to your favorite websites, see what your friends are sharing, and keep up with what's popular. New content comes to your Google Reader when it's posted, so you don't need to visit individual sites.


Plus, Reader keeps track of which items you've read, so you only see unread items when you come back. If there's a dark blue border around an item, Reader is marking that item as read.




G = Google Sites

create a Web site with multiple pages and features. Manage others access to create and share content in public or private Web site. Comes with a variety of templates for different themes and page layouts. Add widgets or feeds from other sites. Add images, video, text, audio and more.



In a classroom: How? 

Create a site for you class or project, or have students collaborate together to create their own site. Would be a great tool for creating a porfolio. Other ideas can be found here at edTech Vision. Good lesson ideas under Gone Google link. 


G = GroupTable

H =

I = Instructables

Online medium for posting instructional posts, essentially a "how to..." site. Has a variety of topics offered, organized based on subject heading. Advantages include that any topic can be posted and categorized. Easy to access, written instruction and visual aids are available to the learner. Disadvantages are that there is no set criteria for formatting instruction, some quality is very good (including images, etc.) and some is less clear to the reader. Certain parts are free and added features are an added cost.  

In a classroom: How? 

Can be useful as another medium for students to present material on the web. Easy to use and easily accessible. Video can also be embedded. 



= Jing

www.jingproject.com  This tool can be used for screen captures and for creating videos. Videos are produced in Shockwave format. Videos can be uploaded to http://screencast.com  

In a classroom: How? 

JING could be used to produce web-based slide shows and videos. Could also document how students complete a math equation or demostrate how to do something on their computer. 

K=Home_kanji Reviewing the Kanji--Leitner Method 

"Reviewing the Kanji" is a reviewing aid that helps you keep track of, and schedule reviews for over two thousand kanji. While the title is a perfectly descriptive one, it is also a playful nod at the kanji study method called "Remembering the Kanji" by James W. Heisig.


In the Leitner system, flashcards are sorted into groups according to how well you know each one in the Leitner's learning box. This is how it works: you try to recall the solution written on a flashcard. If you succeed, you send the card to the next group. But if you fail, you send it back to the first group. Each succeeding group has a longer period of time before you are required to revisit the cards 

In a classroom: How?

The Leitner System helps you to:

  • Make sure that you review all the information that you have learned.

  • Review at increasingly longer intervals to stimulate long term memory.

  • Review more of the difficult flashcards, and less of those that you know well.
