Are you curious to know how your educators detect plagiarism? How can they tell the original work from the copied one or find similarities in the passages taken directly from the work submitted two months ago?

Have you ever thought of Google as an ultimate solution for teaching? Most of us have Gmail or Google+ accounts and store documents in Google Drive, but there are far more handy options and tools that you and your students can access completely for free.

Teachers are experts at delivering material, explanations and instructions. They are familiar with ways of communicating information and are trained in techniques to develop success in their students. But are they successful at learning themselves about how to deal with one of the biggest challenges teachers face? Are they listening to what they can easily teach to others about well-being? Are educators getting the message that they need to deal with the high degrees of stress associated with their careers?
