How can I link to word documents on my blog?

2009-10-21T18:59:48.743Z

Hi all,
I'm using Blogger as the platform for my class blogs this semester and I would like to link to course documents (mostly word docs) from the blog. Is there an effective way to do this?

Wiki or Google Docs

2009-02-01T15:34:28.666Z

I'm looking to create a collaborative type project for my students and am wondering what would be the best platform for them to use - a wiki or google doc? I'm familiar with google docs but not with wikis. Could someone help me to determine the differences between the two and what situation would be best to use them in? Thanks!

Anyone tried the buzzword online doc editor?

2008-06-03T15:55:41.965Z

I just tried out the new online doc editor from Adobe called buzzword. The app itself isn't that cool, google docs and zoho are much better, but it does have a very nifty meeting feature that allows you to share your screen, chat, use video, and so forth.

It's not much different than the elluminate app. used for discussions on CR 2.0, but it's got a little simpler interface. Adobe seems a little late to the game with all this, but I think it might have… I just tried out the new online doc editor from Adobe called buzzword.

school in Maine looking for school to challenge in an environmental project

2007-10-16T22:13:40.567Z

The Village School in Maine (a grade 3-5 school with about 675) is currently building their part of the planetfesto.org virtual ribbon--a segment long enough to circle their gym. They want to challenge another school to see how high a percentage of students and staff they can achieve. Ideally, the school would be in a different part of the US, or abroad. To see the Village School's great contributions, go to www.planetfesto.org and search by village… The Village School in Maine (a grade 3-5 school with about 675) is currently building their part of the planetfesto.org virtual ribbon--a segment long enough to circle their gym. They want to challenge another school to see how high a percentage of students and staff they can achieve. Ideally, the school would be in a different part of the US, or abroad. To see the Village School's great contributions, go to www.planetfesto.org and search by village school.



Planetfesto's purpose is to build an environmental educational and action movement that creates a virtual ribbon long enough to wrap around the earth. To do pieces of the ribbon, students simply choose a photo on the site (or upload their own photo or drawing), say why they love the planet, and what they're personally going to do to protect it (we have plenty of ideas on the site if students don’t have their own). If they are stumped, there is plenty of inspiration just watching the ribbon scroll by, with impassioned declarations of love and individual action from all over the world. People from 37 countries have created pieces of the ribbon.



Some recent new features for schools:

-- search the ribbon and view a custom subset of just your school, location, or community. Teachers are often projecting their piece of the ribbon, like a movie.

-- rank individual pieces of the ribbon and view the most popular worldwide, and also by country

-- music (with more to come!)



The site was created as a totally volunteer effort by a family in California. Planetfesto was named one of the Natural Resources Defense Council's web sites of the week at: http://www.nrdc.org/reference/picks/pick0703.asp. We’ve also been featured in the E-bulletin of the National Association of Independent Schools.



If interested, please contact nancy@planetfesto.org, or Chris Crawford at chrisc@gorhamschools.org.



We’re at www.planetfesto.org. For more information about planetfesto contact Nancy Raff at 510/595-1888.

Document Sharing - applications

2007-07-06T04:30:22.426Z

There are quite a few sites which offer applications for sharing and collaborating on documents, these are the sites that I have tried on different occasions, if you know of more please add:
GoogleDocs - online collaborative word processing
http://docs.google.com
YourDraft - Online draft - shared editing - No registration neccessary
http://www.yourdraft.com
WriteWith - online collaborative word processing… There are quite a few sites which offer applications for sharing and collaborating on documents, these are the sites that I have tried on different occasions, if you know of more please add:

Zoho Writer - online collaborative word processing
http://writer.zoho.com/
WriteBoard - online collaborative word processing
http://writeboard.com/

The applications share similarities and differences. So far I have found google docs very useful for working with my team - it enabled us to build and refine our curriculum online, from home, instead of spending extra hours in school.

I hope next year to use google docs with my students for both individual and group work.
