00:01 - Peggy George
interesting!!! you are going to want to teach research process after you hear from Michael :-)

00:08 - Patti R
I have to be careful about enabling add ons as google apps admin, want to be selective and not allow them to add on anything they want

00:16 - Kimberly Hefty
I teach calculus and precalc ... not sure how to use google drive there

00:18 - Peggy George (Michael Fricano’ Ed Tech Resources website)

00:34 - Peggy George
Thank you Tammy for always doing our closed captioning!!!

00:39 - Debra Patsel
Also, the district has strick benchmarks that make no sense, so doing more in the class is challenging.

03:02 - @bcdtech Maureen
Looking forward to this! Missing my weeky 2.0 live, too much grad stuff!

04:07 - Peggy George
You're welcome!! We're so glad you're here!

09:41 - @bcdtech Maureen
I miss seeing Mary Beth since I have not gone to ISTE for a couple of years. Is she over at SLA now?

10:05 - Toni Olivieri-Barton
HI Maureen! I miss chatting with you!

10:09 - Peggy George
even if you don't use the Common Core standards all of these standards probably still apply to you in some way :-)

10:20 - Peggy George
Hi Maureen!! So great to see you!

10:59 - Peggy George
notice how early these standards begin!!! it's not middle school or high school :-)

11:35 - Peggy George
Hi Carolyn!! Welcome!

12:32 - Peggy George

12:33 - Carolyn Stanley
Hi! Peggy. Still had trouble with tiny URL link - tried to make me download JAVA - which I already had on my machine - warning came up it was malware. Just FYI

12:33 - @bcdtech Maureen
lost audio, but maybe just me

12:38 - Patti R
me too

12:41 - Carolyn Stanley
no audio

12:42 - Doug Henry 1

12:43 - Debra Patsel
lost audio

12:45 - Nenad Đpić
I have lost audio

12:49 - SusanSi
None here

12:50 - Melissa @getztech
no audio here either

12:51 - Suzana
no sound

12:56 - Melissa @getztech
I can hear Peggy

13:03 - Kimberly Hefty
no audio here either ... I need the steps again please

13:29 - Nenad Đpić

13:35 - Melissa @getztech
I'm sure we can entertain ourselves in the meantime <silly grin>

13:36 - Patti R
love the Google Research tool and all the options it offers

13:51 - Kimberly Hefty
is there a way to split our screen so we can open a google doc on same page?

13:54 - Peggy George

14:09 - Peggy George
that depends on your computer Kimberly

14:19 - Toni Olivieri-Barton
Can we look at the last slide of Google REsearch Process. I love that.

14:58 - Kimberly Hefty
ok thanks!

14:59 - Michael Fricano II #2
Sorry! My computer froze!

15:07 - Patti R
in Windows 7 i just snap windows to the left and right of the screen ad they each take up half the screen

15:10 - Carolyn Stanley
You can also reduce the size of your Collaborate window.

15:39 - Lorie Moffat
or the browser's size

16:04 - Peggy George
hearing you great Michael

16:15 - Peggy George

16:57 - Peggy George
we'll all cross our fingers for app sharing :-)

17:00 - Kimberly Hefty

17:23 - Peggy George
Welcome Sofia!!

17:58 - Kimberly Hefty
Where is the research tool?

18:16 - Peggy George

18:24 - Peggy George
that's the research flow chart

18:31 - Kimberly Hefty
the image is really blurry ... is it just my computer?

18:31 - Toni Olivieri-Barton
Thanks Peggy!

18:32 - Peggy George
all of these links are also in the Livebinder

18:41 - Toni Olivieri-Barton

18:51 - Kimberly Hefty
found the research tool!

19:39 - Peggy George
Research Tool Support

20:18 - Kimberly Hefty
very cool!

20:40 - Peggy George

20:52 - David Gonzalez
I love this tool! awesome!

21:17 - Peggy George
it's so exciting to have all of these available to students!! Great resources and they learn the process at the same time!

21:52 - Peggy George
this is being recorded so you can watch it again later and pause along the way to try these things out :-)

21:57 - SusanSi
Can you drag and drop

22:11 - Carolyn Stanley
What's great about the tool is that it limits distractions during the research process.

22:36 - David Gonzalez
So true, Carolyn.

22:37 - Toni Olivieri-Barton
So true Carolyn!

22:42 - Peggy George
great question SusanSI. Lorie is collecting your questions for Michael and will ask him after he finishes his presentation since he can't see the chat while he is app sharing

22:53 - SusanSi

23:10 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hi everyone. I'm at a PD at school today that is just finishing up.

23:15 - Peggy George
Michael is an amazing multi-tasker!!!

23:34 - Peggy George
Hi Paula!!! I'm so glad you could pop in!! :-)

23:52 - David Gonzalez
Oh my Michael! That is fantastic! Wow!

23:53 - Peggy George
that's a fantastic feature--citation creator!

24:26 - Kimberly Hefty
very cool! Love the APA citation! Wish I had known that a few semesters ago

24:53 - Carolyn Stanley
That citation tool is GOLDEN! I remember laboring over footnotes and bibliographies - manual typewriter - had to draw a 1" guide line at bottom of paper so as not to go into margin or there would be points off. Ah, technology:)

25:36 - Patti R
I just searched for tables for hurricane information and you can export the table directly into a Google spreadsheet, something that will be useful for an upcoming project

25:45 - Peggy George
Filter descriptions are on this link:

25:53 - @bcdtech Maureen
I just discovered the Text Help studyskills highliter for chrome - google docs. Free. Loving using the free version of texthelp's read and write for Google... Want to get it for the domain

26:19 - Peggy George

26:42 - Peggy George
the links aren't clickable on the whiteboard in Collaborate but they are all available in his presentation slides in our Livebinder

26:53 - Patti R
@maureen and peggy, thanks for those useful links

29:06 - Peggy George
it really helps to be able to preview the sites!!

29:11 - Peggy George
great skill for them to learn

29:55 - Kimberly Hefty
love the preview feature!

30:14 - Toni Olivieri-Barton
I need to show the 5th graders this yesterday!

30:16 - Peggy George
great link in his slides about evaluating websites from Kathy Schrock:

30:21 - @bcdtech Maureen
Don't you wish that the web site validation tool was just built in too? Although the middle school kids always loved the C.R.A.P. acronym.

30:21 - Patti R
never noticed the line, very glad for that tip

30:36 - Peggy George
terrific tip!!!

30:37 - Kimberly Hefty
every grad student needs this!

31:27 - Peggy George
Kathy Schrock has so many fantastic resources on her site!

31:44 - Peggy George
funny Maureen!!! :-)

32:12 - Peggy George

32:22 - Carolyn Stanley
Kathy Schrock is an amazing educator and person.

32:53 - Peggy George
really important for them to use multiple sources

33:45 - @bcdtech Maureen
@Peggy- many others, but this is a pdf

34:17 - Peggy George
I love that site!! All About Explorers!! They did a webinar for us and it is a great way to help students learn to evaluate websites.

34:31 - Peggy George

35:26 - Peggy George
Excellent infographic on Michael's slides from Langwitches (Silvia Tolisano)

36:35 - Peggy George
it is soooo helpful to see this demonstrated!!

36:37 - @bcdtech Maureen
I was just using this tool this week- writing up a project for a course. Love not having to deal with the syntax of citations... never got it right before

36:51 - Melissa @getztech
I love the idea of having citations being given to me. Wow. That will eliminate stress I normally have when having to write.

37:01 - Peggy George
Creates a footnote and a citation of the website.

37:19 - Melissa @getztech
brilliant, just brilliant

37:20 - LucianeCurator
More and more Google apps for Education . Classroom is awesome

37:23 - Peggy George
I wish I had that when I was writing my doctoral dissertation!!!

37:56 - Peggy George
another great tip!!! so easy to do that!

37:58 - Kimberly Hefty
I have a google doc open but it only shows me a limited amount of sources ... I can't scroll down and see more

38:40 - Peggy George
that could be your bandwidth right now Kimberly with Collaborate open. I'm sure it will be fine later.

39:13 - @bcdtech Maureen
I don't understand why we need a citation, when we already have the link... Some citations give the date accessed, and I know the links break, go away- but how does the citation help that problem?

39:23 - Peggy George
that link to "important" is the link from Langwitches for the infographic

39:56 - @bcdtech Maureen
I guess I need to go read up on that Peggy!

40:07 - Peggy George
When do you introduce those formats Michael? APA, MLA??

40:24 - Peggy George
can third graders get it??

40:53 - Peggy George
thanks!! I think that's a great starting point--just help them understand it's important to cite it and give credit

41:23 - Peggy George

41:43 - @bcdtech Maureen
Cool- is that a mail merge... hate doing those

41:49 - Sofí Segurola 1
Kaizena ?

42:14 - Kimberly Hefty
before picking a format make sure you know know what your local hs uses! learning it as soon as possible is really helpful! (as a mom of 8th grader)

42:16 - LucianeCurator
My reflections after I was honored to be invited by Larry Johnson as a expert in NMC Horizon Report Europe 2014 Schools Edition

42:17 - Peggy George
LucidChart is great! We had a webinar on that too :-)

42:24 - Peggy George

42:55 - Peggy George
Easy Bib addon:

43:05 - LucianeCurator
I work to top 100 google chrome extensions for teachers :)

43:36 - Peggy George
this is the best way to find your addons--right in Google no matter which platform or browser you are using. Of course it works best it the Google browser: Chrome :-)

44:10 - Peggy George
once you add it you'll always have it!! woo hoo!!

44:25 - Kimberly Hefty
math teachers should use Firefox! The equation editor doesn't work well in Chrome :(

45:06 - Kimberly Hefty
love the add-ons! I recommend g-math ... it's free!

45:14 - Peggy George
I agree Kimberly! I use Firefox as my primary browser for lots of reasons and one of them is the side menu for Diigo bookmarks. Can't do that in Chrome.

45:25 - Peggy George
thanks for that tip Kimberly!

46:46 - Sofí Segurola 1
Which are your favorite addons? Can I really talk on my students research paper?

47:20 - Peggy George
yes Sofia. I think he'll say more about comments in a minute.

48:31 - Sofí Segurola 1
Can they use easy bib if their papers are in Spanish?

48:32 - Peggy George
Text Help Study Skills:

48:38 - Patti R
so how do you clear those if you are working on a new project

49:04 - Peggy George
you just click on the x to close them but they will remain available to you as an addon

49:05 - @bcdtech Maureen
Love this one! Teachers get the whole 9 yds for free for a year.. check it out.

49:25 - Peggy George

50:54 - Peggy George
28 ways Google's new add-ons can help teachers now by

50:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
Try the whole thing for free here- very very cool

51:15 - Peggy George
thanks for the link Maureen! I'll add it to the Livebinder.

51:53 - Patti R
I could see maybe a body of text shared with students in which they could highlight adjectives in one color, another part of speech in a different color, etc

51:55 - @bcdtech Maureen
You can use this for a vocab bank... etc

52:15 - Peggy George
that is so cool!!

52:51 - Sofí Segurola 1
I love this

52:55 - Carolyn Stanley
@bcdtech Maureen - I'm not sure that's still valid - was for teacher appreciation week -one month only?????

53:05 - Carolyn Stanley
May 14

53:07 - @bcdtech Maureen
You can do this on pdfs, the web, and epubs with the teacher version... and there is a vocab builder- puts the definitions with the highlighted words

53:12 - David Gonzalez
Wow, another great tool!

53:13 - @bcdtech Maureen
It is still valid

53:31 - Carolyn Stanley
@bcdtech Maureen - cool!

53:53 - Carolyn Stanley
Yellow is good!

54:08 - Carolyn Stanley
Love the collection feature.

54:12 - @bcdtech Maureen
You can get it for a domain for 1.50 per student and the teachers are free

54:18 - Peggy George
very interesting! will have to see if it remains free after 30 day trial :-)

54:21 - Sofí Segurola 1
How do we go to the su marty highlight page

54:32 - @bcdtech Maureen
It is in your docs

54:44 - Peggy George
Gr 4 Endangered Species Research - Student Sample

55:21 - Peggy George
great strategy for students to use comments for their own purposes!

55:44 - Carolyn Stanley
That comment tool is so helpful - instead of correcting the studen's work, one simply comments that the student should correct. Wish I'd had it those early days of teaching English.

56:15 - Peggy George
we're running overtime but we don't want to stop!!! if you need to leave don't worry! It will all be in the recording. :-)

56:37 - Peggy George
it's ok

56:38 - Peggy George

56:40 - Peggy George

56:41 - Suzana
We are eager to hear more!

56:44 - Sofí Segurola 1

56:47 - Peggy George
this is all so valuable!

56:52 - Carolyn Stanley
Very nice, concrete training! Clear and concise. Good job, Michael.

57:26 - David Gonzalez
Thanks for keeping the webinar going. I am enjoying learning about this topic.

57:26 - @bcdtech Maureen
I've used the commenting tool a lot with kids. So much better than dragging papers home and using that red pen- Real time feedback, useful

57:49 - Peggy George
Michael has several student examples for different grades on one of his slides in the Livebinder so you can explore this further to see how it worked with the kids.

57:50 - Kimberly Hefty
really interesting stuff!

58:03 - Carolyn Stanley
@bcdtech Maureen - so very TRUE! Hate those red pens and the message they impart.

58:25 - Peggy George
this slide has some really helpful examples!

58:46 - Peggy George
Gr 3 Hawaii Bird Research - Student Sample BEFORE template

58:55 - Tiziana Angiolini
This is a great tutorial. Thanks a lot...................I am discovering more potentialities ....

58:59 - Melissa @getztech
@bcd tech and Carolyn (thus I graded in purple and green)

59:39 - Carolyn Stanley
@Melissa - yes. I often did that, too!

59:48 - @bcdtech Maureen
@getztech ;)

59:54 - Peggy George
Research Document Template (Make a copy!)

1:00:26 - Peggy George
Gr 4 Endangered Species Research - Student Sample
Gr 3 Simple Machines Research - Student Sample

1:00:42 - Peggy George
Research Document Template
Feel free to make a copy!

1:00:54 - Kimberly Hefty
there's an add-on called "social drop" which makes it really easy to share

1:00:58 - Carolyn Stanley
But the correction process is so much better in Google Docs. I am afraid I did most of the work all those years ago, and I'm not sure MY corrections benefited my students at all. It's so much better when they are guided to make their own corrections.

1:01:02 - Patti R
thank you so much, Michael, great info

1:01:06 - Peggy George
Lorie may have some questions for you :-)

1:01:19 - Kimberly Hefty
thanks Michael!

1:01:19 - Sava
Thank you!!!!! :-)

1:01:23 - David Gonzalez
Thanks so very much, Michael!

1:01:31 - Melissa @getztech
This was awesome! Thank you for getting up early to spend Saturday morning with us.

1:01:34 - Michael Fricano II #2
Thanks, everyone!

1:01:34 - Sofia

1:01:41 - Suzana

1:01:42 - Jaime
Very helpful! Thanks!:)

1:01:48 - Tiziana Angiolini
Thanks a great GREAT WEBMINAR!:)

1:01:57 - Peggy George
just a couple more questions Michael :-)

1:02:19 - Carolyn Stanley
It was a most productive way of spending an hour on a very rainy day in CT.

1:02:26 - Peggy George
the research process requires citations :-)

1:02:39 - Sofia
All my students research in Spanish all the addons will work in another language?

1:03:02 - Peggy George
great question Sofia

1:03:11 - Kimberly Hefty
Sofia, there's a translator add-on

1:03:12 - Carolyn Stanley
The citation process is so much easier now. There is no excuse for not citing properly.

1:03:22 - Peggy George
Kaizena allows voice comments

1:03:35 - Peggy George

1:04:12 - Peggy George
oooohhhh! grading help addon :-)

1:04:32 - Kimberly Hefty
Gliffy is another must have add-on!

1:04:47 - Peggy George
thanks Kimberly!! I'll add that to the Livebinder :-)

1:04:49 - Suzana
What is Gliffy?

1:05:11 - Peggy George

1:05:17 - Sofia

1:05:24 - Peggy George
onlnine diagrams :-)

1:05:42 - Patti R
i actually meant easy bib not the research tool

1:05:45 - Kimberly Hefty
giffy does really easy flowcharts & diagrams ... love it!

1:05:48 - Patti R
but i guess that goes with the doc also

1:05:57 - Suzana

1:06:11 - Sofia
I need to Learn how to share a research document is with groups

1:06:22 - Sofia
Of students

1:06:25 - Peggy George
fantastic presentation Michael!!!! Thank you so much!

1:06:56 - Peggy George
can you believe there are so many free things available to us???

1:07:01 - Kimberly Hefty
Thanks again everyone! Great first webinar ... in the books! :)

1:07:11 - Michael Fricano II #2
