tool 4

Briefly discuss how you can use the tools in Google Apps with your team or department. How can you incorporate Google Apps as a tool in your classroom? Which tools are you excited about using with students?

I used google docs on projects in my education classes several times. This is an amazing app to use when working on group projects. For one of my projects the four of us had to complete one paper. We sat at a table together writing on one document simultaneously through google docs. When we chose to work from home we could comment on each others' additions to the paper. I have also used google form to create a survey. As a geology student I became familiar with google earth. I am especially excited about this application. I would use all three of these applications in my classroom. I really like the app Sketch up. I have not had the opportunity to use it. When I first saw it I thought that it would be great for my students to build 3-D models of classic physics problems, but the app is designed more for constructing architecture.

  1. sounds like you have some expereince with Google Apps. Could you see having students use Google Docs to complete lab assignments? Students could work collaboratively using a variety of devices - netbooks, iPads, iPhones, Androids.
