More Ideas to Googlize Your School

Tomorrow I will be presenting at the CPS Leadership Tech Summit about how to "Googlize Your School." I began gathering some ideas in the post below, but wanted to have a paperless take-away for my participants. In the past I've created a Google Site, but my beef with that is it isn't really interactive. So, I'm going to try to practice what I preach.

For this session, I've created a Google Doc with a rough summary of my ideas and content. Why a Google Doc? This will allow participants to not only learn from me, but from each other as well. If they have ideas, comments or updates on any of the content shared, they can add it in! I am sharing this doc here, so that not only the participants at tomorrow's session, but anyone who wants to learn alongside us may join in.

So click here and join in the fun! How do you Googlize Your School?

  1. I have found that when using Google Docs all at once the students sometimes have a difficult time writing over each other. One way to prevent this is to create a table with a place for each person to type their response into. This is especially useful during Science when I want each student to share their hypothesis and conclusions. I also got this really cool book from Google at ISTE with ways to use Google in the classroom. Good luck with your presentation. I am sure it will be awesome.

    1. If your district or school went with Google Apps for Education and got a district domain, they can get email accounts for your kids. Otherwise, there isn't a way that I know of. Sorry!
