This podcast is a recording (the first of three parts) I made on August 6, 2007, of a workshop for Irving ISD teachers on “Using Google and Yahoo Tools for Educational Research and Collaboration.” Google for Educators (http://www.google.com/educators) and Google Labs (http://labs.google.com) include a wealth of powerful, free tools for learners. Yahoo also provides powerful, free learning tools. These permit streamlined Internet research, connecting ideas, hyperlinks and data with geographic places on earth, collaboratively authoring documents with options to share the results with others, creating web pages with a web browser, and more. In this session we’ll explore Google Notebook, Google Reader, Google Earth, Google News Alerts, Google SMS, and more!
