Google Drive helps you to go mobile because it's available anywhere you go that has internet - In my mind having a Google account is a must for sharing and accessing files on the go.
Having an online calendar whether Outlook or Google is essential for organizing your time anytime, anyplace. RTI data that you need to collect, reminders in calendar, etc... there are unlimited ways to improve your efficiency. The goal is for technology to make you more effiicient. Streamline where you organize your life. I use Outlook at work, I sync my calendar with my phone calendar and record notes and invite others to meetings all while walking down the hall.

It's not just multiple choice -
What Makes You Say That?
As you know, Socrative is a tool that reports what your students know. However, did you know that Socrative can also provide information on how your students are thinking? For example, after a science lesson, a teacher may use a Socrative quiz to ask, “Will a penny, with a density of 2g/ml float in water?” Based upon the student responses, the teacher will be able to see who responded correctly.Then, she may ask, “Please explain your answer to question 1″.Here’s where another component of studentthinking comes in. Based upon this second round of responses, the teacher will be able to see how her students understand (or misunderstand) the concept of density. Using Socrative will allow her to target any remaining misunderstandings in her ongoing instruction.This type of teaching is based upon research on student thinking at Harvard’s Project Zero. It encourages students to share and explain their perspectives by asking,
- What’s going on?
- What do you see?
- What do you know?
- What makes you say that?
