Google Cloud Connect

Image
You can now use Word, PowerPoint and Excel for collaboration - Google Cloud Connect is a simple plug-in that synchronises your work online at the same time as you save work to your computer. I've tried it, I really like it! It seems to solve a couple of problems - the MS programs are more powerful than the Google online versions, so it's nice to be able to do the writing there - and having an instant backup (automatic and frequent) is extremely reassuring. Finally, no more will you remember that the document you wanted is on your home computer and you are not at home... Anyway, have a look at the vid, which explains all and you can download the plug-in here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/cloudconnect

Print Friendly (and PDF) Web Pages

Image
Just discovered a really nice website which allows you to simply paste the web address of a particularly juicy web page that you'd like either to print or to save as a pdf file - but without all the usual nonsense that clutters the page up, and it works beautifully!

Try it, I think you'll like it: http://www.printfriendly.com/

You can also drag a button to your browser bar so you've always got access to the service: http://www.printfriendly.com/browser_tool

Oh, by the way, I'm also going to be blogging about technologies for learning here, which is an expansion of the original remit here, but I will always be person-centred in orientation and approach :-)
