Digital literacy discoveries this week

1. Some gadgets offered in google sites do not display well (or at all) when viewed in chrome. The fish gadget in my eportfolio is an example. It works beautifully in internet explorer and safari.

2. I have returned to bloglines for my e-reader (as google reader is shutting down next week! ) It took me awhile to discover the edit button beside the name of the website for some reason. I have subscribed to all the course participant blogs.

3. I have started organising my emails (gmail) with “circles”, google+, and labels. Still waiting to discover the benefits. I think the sharing of docs and pictures will be useful.

3. I discovered the about me page and decided to create one. Again I am not too sure if I need yet another website, however it seemed to link in with google sites so I went with it. Not sure if I will use this much.

4. I need to learn how to turn off the automatic category tick. All my postings are going to Literacy and Numeracy.  i then have to go back and edit.


Learning to use Google ‘Sites’

As I am now facilitating on a new course in the GDTE  it is time to extend my digital literacy skills once again. I am experimenting with google ‘sites’. Here is my e-Portfolio thus far : https://sites.google.com/site/helenlportfolio/home

I am not happy with the layout at present and changing it so far has not been intuitive.

My e-Portfolio will be where I document my work as a facilitator for Learning and Teaching in Practice.
