Class too big? Get Googled.
Because I had to teach 2 digital design classes with 40 students each this year, I had to come up with a solution on how to drive the class effectively in which my students could learn from my tutorials at their own pace, find resources, have their parents enjoy their work on blogs, receive emails from me (both parents and students), find resources and take quizzes on line, and still have my one on one interaction in class. The answer was google (google blogger, google gmail, youtube, google calendar, google documents, google picnik, google picasa and more. The platform I work on is Mac and my students are required to learn CS5 software, Final Cut, and all of the software that comes with a Mac. This is for Salt Lake Concurrent Enrollment and high school Art credit. I'm sure this style of teaching could work for any subject.

Using Prezi and Google Docs for Collaborative Curriculum Development
The presentation focuses on using Prezi.com as a format for collaborative curriculum mapping between teachers, in conjunction with Google Docs to create a shared database of teacher resources. Both Prezi and Google Docs are free, collaborative, and cloud-based. Using these tools in a synergistic way, educators can work together and share resources in real-time without the need to schedule face-to-face communication. The curriculum map we are developing in Prezi.com outlines a simple to follow visual representation of the Utah State Core. Each of the lesson summaries in the curriculum map have a resources section where shared docs are listed by file name and owner/creator. This allows any teacher that is added to the shared system access to a year-long curriculum flow with available resources to choose from. The strength in the project is the more people collaborate in it, the better it will become.

This is not a training on the "how-to's" of Google Docs or Prezi and assumes the participant is somewhat familiar with these programs.
