For many years now, I have been an avid user of as much Google as possible. Google Maps, Images, Gmail, Places, Docs…I think I’ve tried just about everything. I recently gave a presentation to my school staff about using Google Docs in the classroom, and I shared the following links with them:
Google for educators – An overview of how Google Docs can be used in the classroom http://www.google.com/educators/p_docs.html
The Google Classroom – Site created by an educator showing the many uses of lots of Google products in the classroom.
GoogleFest 2010 – A prezi that shows visually some of the many uses of Google products, including Docs.
GoogleDoc Wikispaces – Wikispaces created by another school for their staff to use. Includes a few videos on Google Docs and links to other resources.
Google Docs & Spreadsheets in the Classroom – PDF file with a few ideas and resources for using Google Docs.
31 Interesting Ways to Use Google Docs in the Classroom – A Google Presentation that you can save to your Google Docs and edit!
I thought that I knew just about everything there was to do with Google and the classroom, and then I found this post from edudemic.com, shared on Twitter by @web20classroom. Special thanks goes out to Steven for posting the link! The post shares great ideas for using Google in the classroom that I did not even know about…enjoy!
