At last we touched upon one of my favorite topics, and serious topics, which are Google for Education and Cloud Computing. As i mentioned in one of my previous posts, Google really is a Humans great invention from the point of Technology ( Google). Besides, the case is not that Google is one of the leading Companies in the Internet, but because it is the most organized virtual space i have ever seen. Why? the answer is simple; if you want to create a doc. you are most welcome to the Google Drive , which gives you the opportunity to create docs, online presentation, forms for creating surveys, spreadsheet for in-class activities. Besides, talking about the presentation type, Google online presentation tool is a type of Cloud Computing. This gives you an opportunity to create your presentation, without downloading any extra software. It is done in the internet, metaphorically in the cloud. If in some period of your teaching plan to implement Google, then don’t hesitate and use Blogger . This is really a great tool, for writing activities, to engage your students to write and communicate with other edu communities. Finally, if you want to stay in touch with just a right people, and make video and audio calls you should say Google+ here i come.
I can list another three or more Google apps, but the idea is not listing apps, but the quality of each of the apps which can help to make teaching more moderated and for students enjoyable.
And an advise from a Appleholic (LOL) , If you want to keep all your browser history from your iPhone, Ipad, and other i tech , just download i-cloud to your PC browser, which will help you to have everything in one computer.
