San Antonio, Texas “The amazing plasticity of the brain is nowhere as evident in the rapid adaptations humans are making in response to our unprecedented access to electronic information. Google Apps is a free suite of hosted email and collaboration applications exclusively for schools and universities. This includes Gmail, Calendar, Documents, Sites, and Groups, all at no charge. Google Apps for Education includes:
Google Mail (Gmail)
Google Sites Gmail https://www.google.com/calendar/render?gsessionid=OK Google Calendar Changes made by a calendar organizer are automatically seen by anyone who checks, which makes outdated versions a thing of the past. https://accounts.google.com/Login http://www.google.com/educators/p_docs.html Spreadsheet forms simplify data collection Create a survey or poll in a few easy steps
Your respondents’ data appears in your spreadsheet as they fill it out Google Docs An Overview for Educators Anywhere access & collaboration Google Docs is different:
Documents are saved online and can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection
Collaboration: Multiple people can work together on the same document. No need to email documents back and forth Add collaborators to documents After students invite you to their documents:
you can review, comment, and grade their work at any time
it's hard for students to tell fibs when you can see their work at all times
Also, students can work together on projects and get peer feedback Example Exercises Documents
Essays (individual or co-edited)
Collaborative research papers (history, geography, science)
Collaborative book reports
Creative writing (script writing, poetry)
Stock portfolio (live data)
Graphs, charts, and data presentation techniques
Presenting group research
Active student participation during a presentation Makes planning and admin tasks easier Teachers create and share lesson plans, meeting notes, and contact information in Google Docs Google Docs Google Docs is a free, web-based word processor, spreadsheet and presentation tool that allows you to create and edit documents from anywhere and collaborate with multiple people at the same time. Access documents from anywhere Students can work from both school and home since documents are stored securely online
All you need is browser and internet connection, no software version requirements
No more “I forgot my work” excuses Saves changes automatically Google Docs saves automatically, on a regular basis. Each change is tracked as a new revision. You can see exactly what’s been revised, by whom, and when. “Teachers are able to individually assess student participation and content using the revision tab on Google Docs to see how editing is proceeding and to encourage students as they work.” - Technology coordinator, Lafayette, CA Collaboration gets students excited and engaged “Students love it, no more coaxing kids to do their writing assignments. They beg to go to the computer lab to work on a collaborative assignment with their partner.”
- High School Journalism teacher, Palo Alto, CA Writing for an authentic audience Publish a document to make it visible to an authentic audience: parents, peers, and friends
You can even publish directly to your blog. Online presentations You can import existing PowerPoint presentations or create new ones from scratch
Insert images and videos, and format your slides to fit your preferences.
Publish and embed your presentations in a website, allowing access to a wide audience. Students can chat while others are presenting “One student talked aloud while everyone listened and chatted about the presentation… For the first time I can EVER remember as a teacher - 100% of the students were engaged in the presentation and participated in the chat. The students were enthusiastic and offered insightful and appropriate comments.“
- Computer Applications teacher, Beaverton, OR Folders organize your students’ work Folders keep student work organized
Standard naming schemes allow you to sort by “Name” to easily find a class period Visit the Google Docs page
