Deep Diving Into Text

Copy and paste a transcript of a video to a Google Doc. You will need to check the transcript makes sense and chunk ideas before deep diving into text with learners. Share a copy of the doc on your learning site for learners to make a copy. Use the highlight tool in Google Docs to highlight main ideas and significant word groups, to analyse and make meaning with your learners.

Smart Learner:Reuse and attribute an image


Learners should not be sharing their copy of this Slide Deck on their blog.

The Explore Tool

In this example we are using the Explore Tool to search for images and introduce learners to searching online. The Explore Tool provides search for the web, images and your Drive.

Many of the images are available for reuse however learners need to check the exact terms of reuse stated in the license. (See Google's Disclaimer)

If the image is attribution free encourage learners to leave the link that is automatically generated with the image.

The slide deck also includes support for checking the license and attributing images which are labeled for reuse.

If learners are using images in their blog posts or other DLOs they should also be applying these same practices.

Recommendations for Sharing

  • Select the slides with their examples only to share (slides 6-9) and copy into a new slide deck.
  • Use Screencastify to record a narration for their slides to help others learn to attribute images
  • Scaffold writing or screencast script by:
