Blog Post #1

With very little research on one of my favorite Personal Learning Networks (PLN's), Pinterest, I came across an awesome blog called Cult of Pedagogy: Teacher Nerds, Unite and one of their posts' were "16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms." Basically, it just gave creative and more tech savvy ideas on how to perform simple tasks using Google Apps to do something that might have otherwise been extremely "blah." For example, instead of turning in a boring handwritten or typed up book report into the class room, this post gave some valuable suggestions on how to make it more interesting. A book report on paper is not nearly as interactive as it could be using Google Docs. When a student types something, they can hyperlink the website of the author of the book they read or some other really cool source!
