Share and save Google Docs-How to Guide

How to save and share google docs (I use this as a link for students to follow....)

1) Open the document by clicking on the link that was shared with you.

2) In the window with the document go to 'File>Make a Copy'

2) Text box will pop up - keep the name the same (at the moment it will be highlighted in blue, so all you need to do is press the right cursor once and delete the 'insert name here' bit), then fill in your full
name - you should end up with 'Copy of name of the document 'YOUR NAME'. 

3) This is now your own private document - you need to share it with me so I can mark and assess it!  Click the blue 'share' button in the top right.

4) Another box will pop up, this is the share dialogue.  At the bottom it says 'add people'.  Click in this box and start to type my email address ''. This will allow it to be shared with me, I can comment on it - if you change the permissions to 'View' only I won't be able to mark it.  Keep it as either 'edit' or 'comment' - you can even write a quick message letting me know you have shared it by clicking the 'add message' button.

5) Click 'Share and Send'

6) You can now have a go at entering information on the document!!

Learning analytics in secondary schools

What can be learnt from the challenges faced in the use of learning analytics in tertiary institutions, when considering its application in secondary education? photo by Frank Dabek I posed this question after reading several sources regarding the use of learning analytics in education.  As a secondary school teacher I was interested in finding out if there was anything to be learnt about the application of analytics in tertiary setting , before it is embedded into secondary schooling.  The NMC 2013 Horizon Report claims that within 2-3 years it will have developed beyond the 20% penetration point.  After summarising sources I found common themes in the challenges faced when utilising learning analytics. Driving forces behind analytics Error correction and data override Collection of valuable data Ethics, morals and privacy I will evaluate the considerations of each challenge when applied in the secondary context to raise the achievement of learners and inform successfu

Motivation and homework follow up...

Last week I wrote about setting a homework challenge to learn muscles of the body as an online game - the students then had to post screen grabs on google+ to show they had done it and to be in contention for the hallowed prize of 'King of the Muscles' and a cafe voucher. I wasn't quite sure how it was going to go, but by Thursday the buzz in all my senior classes was about ' poke-a-muscle '.  The boys were so excited about it they'd post a score, and then find out that someone had beaten them, and then rush out of the class at interval to get to a computer and beat the top score.  I even had an email on Saturday (two days after the due date) from two boys who had been practicing and spent the afternoon working together to try and beat the original high scores they had submitted with the homework!!!

Gamification of human anatomy

Poke-a-muscle and whack-a-bone are two really fun web apps that refresh understanding of human anatomy.  I'm using them today in my lesson and getting the boys to screen grab their best score and post it to our Google+ community to encourage some healthy competition between the students.  I finished the lesson off with a collaborative problem solving activity that I found on the TES website which asks the students to match up statements about functions of the skeleton !
