Week of Keep 4 - Keep Notepad in Google Docs

So by now this week you have probably guessed that we love Google Keep.
Standalone, it's a great tool. Add in the ability to use Keep in Google Docs and for many it will become a game changer. Using your Keep notes within Google Docs is done via the Keep Notepad that is built into the tools menu in Docs, and allows to see your notes whilst staying in Docs.
Take a look at this video for some practical examples of how that integration is useful for workflow and convenience - a great addition.

This could inconvenience people - people that use them and me*

Every school still has one or two people that carry everything to and from work every day on that external disc they bought four or five years ago - I know of one colleague who has more than ten year's material on there, and another that lost everything when the drive failed and they had no backup. The ban comes from a security review where these devices were identified as one of our highest risks because:

From a data protection point of view, we know people know not to put any kind of personal or confidential data onto one, but there is always the risk of human error.The…

eLearning Scrapbook of Ideas

Our eLearning Conference is coming up fast and a number of ideas and mini-projects are coming up to release for it. One of these is what we've been calling internally a 'Playbook' then a 'Scrapbook.'

The premise is simple - we have the privilege of working with a lot of very clever people around the DRET Academies and often, something to them that seems mundane or just something they thought they'd show us as an afterthought turns out to be an idea we're blown away by and need to share.

We have picked up many of these snippets and are making "top tips" website for our staff that will be publicly available with help videos etc very shortly.

Sometimes though you need a "brochure" version - on paper - to get attention. So we've packaged together a sample and had it printed for delegates…
