Search Tricks

http://marketingconversation.com/2012/08/03/you-can-reclaim-your-reputation-on-google-search/Google is so much more than a search engine. It’s a reference book, calculator, even a weather forecaster. Using these tricks, you can find helpful information quickly, plus get to the right links faster.

  1. Feel lucky:Access the page that Google thinks is the most relevant for your search with the “I’m Feeling Lucky” feature. Chances are, you’ll find a great resource without having to look any further.
  2. Find public data:Google offers stores of public data, right in search results. For population and employment rates, just search for “population” or “unemployment rate” plus the state or county.
  3. Find your web history:Find websites you’ve visited and even search your own online history with Google’s Web History.
  4. Search within a site:Found a site that’s full of great stuff? Narrow down your results within the site by searching for (search query) site:(domain).
  5. Search for exact phrases:Put quotation marks around “any word” to find an exact phrase more efficiently.
  6. Shorten your search phrases:Chances are, you don’t need to type a whole lot to find what you’re looking for. Try shortening your searches to just a few words.
  7. Check the weather in a flash:Need to know if rain is going to hold you up on the way to class? Just type “weather” plus the city or zip code, and Google will pop up a forecast for you.
  8. Be descriptive:Instead of searching for “celebrity sounds,” which could be a variety of different sounds, look for “celebrity ringtones,” which is much more specific.
  9. Find the file type you’re looking for:Search for PDF, doc, even Power Point files by adding a filetype:pdf modifier to your search string.
  10. Forget about cases:Google’s search isn’t case sensitive, so search for new york times if you’re looking forThe New York Times.
  11. Don’t worry about punctuation, either:Search doesn’t pay attention to punctuation and special characters, so don’t bother using them.
  12. Turn Google into a calculator:Did you know that Google has a built-in calculator function? Just enter a calculation into the search box, and you’ll get the answer!
  13. Google is a dictionary and thesaurus, too:Get definitions by entering “define” before your search term, and discover synonyms by adding a tilde (~), as in, ~cats.
  14. Quickly discover movies and movie showtimes:To find movie reviews, showings, and theaters before you head out with friends, just type “movies” plus your zip code for the best results.
  15. Check the time around the world:Chatting with your video penpal in Japan? Find out what time it is by searching for “time Japan.”
  16. Get rid of the stuff you don’t want:If you keep getting irrelevant results for a certain term, you can exclude words just by placing a minus sign in front of them. So if you want to know about wombats but not necessarily blind wombats, you’d search for wombats -”blind wombat.”
  17. Search with Goggles:Use your mobile phone’s camera to search for an item instead of typing words.
  18. Search by voice, too:Search the web with speech by tapping the microphone button on your Google search box.
  19. Discover what you don’t know:Google can help you fill in the blank with a simple asterisk (*). You can search for “Isaac Newton discovered *,” and Google will complete your sentence.
  20. Check your spelling:If you’re not sure how to spell a word, just type your best guess into Google. If you’re wrong, Google will pop up with an alternative, asking, “Did you mean: (correct spelling)?”
  21. Keep finding great sources:If you like what you see on a particular website, and would like to find more, just do a related search on Google. For example, “related:www.cnn.com” will direct you to more news sites like CNN.
  22. Discover people:Thanks to Google Plus, Google offers people profiles for a surprising amount of individuals. Get the quick low-down on your classmates, professors, and even important public figures by simply Googling a person’s name.
  23. Check out patents:If you need to research a patent for school (or your latest invention), just plug in the number, plus the word “patent” into Google to get information about it.
  24. Research health conditions, medications, and even save a life:Type any common symptom or disease into Google, and you’ll find an expert summary. Same thing for most generic and brand name prescriptions. Search for “poison control,” “suicide prevention,” and “flu,” and you’ll be directed to the appropriate phone number or even nearby locations that can help.
  25. Find food, stores, and more fast:Find local businesses, like restaurants, quickly just by entering what you’re looking for plus your zip code. For example, you can find pizza joints in the Beverly Hills area by searching for “pizza 90210.”
  26. Quit stalking the FedEx guy:You can track packages from USPS, FedEx, and UPS just by typing your tracking number directly into Google.
  27. Convert units of measure:Calculate temperature, weight, and more just by using Google Search.

  32. Check the time:Find out the local time just by entering “what time is it” into Google.
  33. Search within a url:Discover topics, years, and more within a url just by using “inurl:.”

  1. Use Google Voice as your phone number:Avoid pesky solicitor phone calls and use voicemail transcription to take the time suck out of using your phone.
  2. Put voicemails in a special label:Set up a label for all emails that come from voice-noreply@google.com.
  3. Set up a “do not disturb” time:Determine a time when you really need to get things done, set up “do not disturb” on Google Voice, and all your calls will go to voicemail.
  4. Block nuisance calls:Kill productivity-busting sales calls by blocking them. Google Voice will set up a disconnection message for callers that you’ve blocked.
  5. Record calls:If you’re doing research interviews, this is a really handy time saver. Use Google Voice to record calls, and you can go back to them later.

100 Tools, Guides, and Resources to create your own course

Perhaps you have a special skill, talent, or knowledge-base that you want to share with others, and maybe you’ve heard that teaching online courses can make you a little extra money. The resources below will help you discover how to combine both what you have to offer and what you wish to gain by guiding you through creating and establishing an online course. No matter what age of student, subject you want to teach, or size of the class, you will find resources and information to bring your class online.

7 Steps to an Awesome Infographic

Knowing how popular and effective infographics can be these days, how do we actually go about creating them? Here I lay out the 7 steps to create awesome infographics.
Infographics, by definition are,

“Graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. With an information graphic, computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians develop and communicate concepts using a single symbol to process information (Wiki).”

As you can see, graphically displaying information is not new. Things like maps, street signs, and the Periodic Table of Elements are all infographics. So why do we see them shared all over social media all of a sudden? Well, like any trend, it’s a perfect combination of filling a desire in the market, and having the right people adopt and share in the “movement.”

Ik vind dit wel een handig artikel, want waar begin je nu meer als je een infographic gaat maken.
Deze stap-voor-stap guide laat je zien hoe je een goede inforgraphic kunt maken.

Een google docs document met meer dan 100 tips over hoe je de Ipad kunt inzetten in het onderwijs.

“100+ Tips on how to Integrate iPad into your Classroom” verder lezen

Social media in het onderwijs: en nu concreet!

Er zijn  al veel publicaties geschreven over de zin en onzin van het gebruik van social media in het onderwijs.  Ik volg met interesse de (soms verhitte) discussies over de meerwaarde  ervan.  Uiteraard zijn al deze  onderzoeken, whitepapers, blogs etc. zinvol. Het is immers belangrijk om te kunnen toetsen of social media in het onderwijs inzet in de lespraktijk ook werkelijk een meerwaarde heeft.  Daarmee creëer je draagvlak om innovatieve social media experimenten op te schalen en “staand” te krijgen binnen het onderwijsproces.

Waarom social media in het onderwijs gebruiken?

Als je het aan de docenten vraagt die nu (al?) social media gebruiken in de les, dan zijn de argumenten:

– Je brengt de buitenwereld binnen
– Anytime, any place, any pace
– Link tussen lesstof en actualiteit
– Denk- en samenwerkingsprocessen transparant maken
– Aansluiten bij interesse en voorkennis van je leerlingen
– Afwisseling in werkvormen
– Mogelijkheid om feedback en expertise van buiten te ontvangen

12 easy Screen-Sharing Tools

Screen-Sharing and Remote-Collaboration Apps

Here you go, free and easy-to-setup screen-sharing and remote-access tools. There are several ways you can benefit from these apps:
– (1) Remote-Control: Help out your friend or mom with PC problems remotely,
– (2) Screen-Sharing: Collaborate on running programs and documents with friends.
– (3) Remote-Access: Access your PC files from work, school, etc.

Even eenvoudig je scherm delen met iemand anders om even iets uit te leggen of om samen iets uit te zoeken kan heel eenvoudig als je de juiste tooltjes er maar voor hebt.

Mijn eigen dochter zocht laatst iets op internet, maar kon het zelf niet zomaar vinden. Ik zat tegenover haar met mijn eigen laptop en startte snel even Teamviewer op.  Ik kon nu  (heel lui) vanaf mijn eigen plek samen met haar de dingen zoeken die ze zocht. Daar is screen sharing dus voor bedoeld.

De lijst met 7 screensharing tools zoals beschreven op makeuseof:

1. CrossLoop
2. TeamViewer
3. Yuuguu
4. Unyte Lyte
5. SoonR
6. FolderShare
7. sVNC 

Nog meer screen sharing apps en online programma’s, zoals:

channel.me
channel.me shop together on the internet

8.   Join.me
9.   Screenleap
10. AnyMeeting
11.  Screenleap
12. Channel.me   Samen surfen op internet.  Samen shoppen op internet.

Lessen op afstand.

Je kunt screen sharing tools ook gebruiken om lessen op afstand te verzorgen. Let er echter wel op wat je deelt en of  de ‘kijkers’ mogen meeklikken. Dat is niet altijd gewenst natuurlijk. Bij Channel.me kun je juist samen klikken. Erg handig als je zoals ik even iets wilt uitleggen aan je dochter.

Op je thuis computer werken vanaf je school pc.

Teamviewer wordt veel gebruikt om op afstand je pc te bedienen. Je kunt Teamviewer thuis op je computer installeren. Op school heb je niet altijd de beschikking over alle programma’s en dan is het wel handig als ja vanaf je school pc even kunt inloggen op je thuis pc. Het is dan net alsof je thuis achter de computer zit. Alles is natuurlijk goed beveiligd met een password. Je kunt teamviewer op meerdere pc’s installeren op je eigen (gratis) acoount. Als je vervolgens inlogt op je Teamviewer account, kun je kiezen uit een lijst van je eigen computers waarop je wilt inloggen.
