List of additional file storage websites
When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinically tested best practices, and demonstrate how these best practices can be applied in the real (i.e. physical) and virtual (i.e. online) classroom for both teaching and teacher training. The combination of face to face instruction in a physical setting and online learning is called blended learning. In this section of the blog we will describe how the internet can serve as a supplemental resource for instruction and the mentoring of pre-service and in-service Jewish educators. In this post we will share a list of additional file storage websites.
Why would a Judaic teacher or staff developer want to use web tools for storing files?
Below are some reasons why a Judaic educator or staff developer might want to have a specific location (ie. url or link) to place his or files on the internet:
1. Some files are too large to send via email. A storage file website allows those larger files to be easily shared.
2. A specific place to store files on the internet. In this way individuals, teams, a class or members of the school community can find documents and files.
3. A place to share collaborative documents on the internet. Students, teachers and others can find and then edit documents.
4. A place to store specific projects such as:
· individual assignments
· paired assignments
· class assignments
· team projects
· school projects
· lesson plans
· lesson activities
5. A place to store previous assignments or completed projects.
