originally in this time slot has been cancelled
Wednesday 18th March 09 ... 2:00 to 5:00
It's highly likely that you are already familiar with the Google search engine (www.google.com).
In this session we will take a closer look at some of the not so well known search functions in Google and some of the strategies that could make you and your students better searchers. (researchers)
Google, though, is now much more than just a search engine ... we will also cover some of the other Google applications that are available to educators.
In particular we will look at Google Docs which allows you (your students) to set up free collaborative Word documents and Spreadsheets online.
In addition you will be shown where to find free (legal) resources for students to use (images, videos and sound files) .... and how to copyright your own resources.
Those attending this session are expected to:
c) bring a thumbdrive/flashdrive to save files on ... or bring your own laptop (optional)
