“Learner Drivers with Google Docs”
This Learner Drivers with Google Docs workshop explores the potential usefulness of cloud computing tools (such as Google Docs) for learning and assessment at a tertiary level. The various features offered by cloud computing tools, suggested potential areas of application and a highlight of key benefits to students and lecturing staff from both learning and assessment perspectives will be examined. How cloud computing tools can be used to monitor and guide students (in real time) throughout the learning and assessment process will be demonstrated and participants will have the opportunity to play/collaborate with Google Docs. A case study summary which successfully illustrates many of the identified benefits will be incorporated into the workshop.
