Taking away one thing – Google Summit

When you present at or attend a conference, you hope to either have your participants or yourself walk away with at least one new idea. After attending day one of the Google Summit at SAS in Singapore, I have walked away with a few new ideas to share with you.

 

 

1. Google Drive and Research

 

When creating a Google doc in Drive, you can now highlight text and search online without leaving your doc.

 

 

If you find information that you would like to include in your doc and cite, it is just as easy as copy, paste, and cite!

 

 

 

 

2. quackit.com

This is an online HTML editor tool. You can paste in urls of images or videos found online and quackit.com converts them into HTML codes to embed in your blogs or even for tours in Google Earth. @nigel17 shared this tool during his session on Google Lit Trips. He also shared a site where you can download Lit Trips that have already been created for Google Earth. http://googlelittrips.org

Looking forward to day two!
