TEACHERS GUIDE TO GOOGLE WAVE!

HI FRIENDS. I FOUND THIS INTERESTING ARTICLE ON ONLINE DEGREE.

Google Applications have already proven themselves as extremely valuable tools for educators of all types, and the launch of Google Wave for general use in 2010 continued the internet juggernaut’s dominance in shaping the future of how people communicate. Unsurprisingly, their dynamic, interactive Wave communities provide a glut of opportunities for savvy teachers eager to embrace the latest technological developments.

At its core, Google Wave seeks to provide a means of organizing and streamlining projects involving a group of people. Anyone approved to participate in a particular community wields the power to edit and change information to keep others updated on any changes, challenges, and progress involving the goal at hand. This interface certainly improves upon the old system of group e-mails, phone calls, notes, and other scattered bits of information that could easily overwhelm all group members. Google Wave’s all-inclusive environment definitely allows newcomers to the specified projects a quicker means of soaking up all the data may have missed had they been forced to scan a plethora of e-mails, instant messages, and voice mails. Best of all, users have the option of making their collaborations either public or private, so anyone concerned about confidential research need not worry about sneaky leaks.
