What if we can't make it to #VSTE14? I think you should break the presentation down into some Qs and help moderate a  on Twitter in the Classroom! Thoughts?

Use tables. Give each sub group or student a section to work on. Try sharing a presentation rather than a document. Ask student to write on a specific slide number. Either that, or use Google Forms and display the spreadsheet with all the contributions. Another option is Doctopus, a script that will allow you to create project groups rather than whole class assignments. 
 
Although I love Google Drive, I am having an issue with students working together in docs. When they work on a group project and multiple people are editing at the same time, the text and such constantly changes positioning. This gets very difficult to type and can be confusing, any help or thoughts?

Give this link to your Civics and English Teachers. Great "Media Literacy" ideas.

Every teacher I've worked with over the last five years recalls two kinds of digital experiences with students. The first I think of as digital native moments, when a student uses a piece of technol

#throughglass we had no school today because of extreme temperate. It was -14 not including windchill. Take a cup of boiling water and throw it in the air. The kids thought it was cool.

I'm curious about this Verso app. Says it's coming out in Sept. Does someone have a copy? I'm seeing tweets about it. http://www.flipyourthinking.net/verso-app/
Verso is an elegant, easy-to-use app that works on any mobile device and equips teachers with everything they need to successfully flip their classrooms. Supporting Learnology's Precision Teaching approach, Verso delivers visibility on student learning right into the hands of teachers, just when they need it.
