Getting back to basics

I know the internet being a common thing is not that old, and using it in schools has been happening for a while now too, but do you think maybe we need to get back to the basics? Maybe we need to start from the beginning with our students. Teaching them how to search, http://www.google.com/insidesearch/landing/powersearching.html, with this power searching webinar from Google might be nice. Then…do you know all you can do with Gmail and Google Chrome? We’ve been learning about all of the different things that can be done with this in a few staff developments. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/home Go here to the Chrome Store and download apps and extensions to use on your Google Drive and Chrome. Google Drive is amazing for what can be done on it and with it. It’s not just to type documents, it’s also your own web-based storage cloud. I’m teaching a staff development on it tomorrow. I will post the overview in case anyone wants to check it out.
