Google Apps

The Education Edition of Google Apps has given our school new opportunities to collaborate and share information. When we first thought up the idea of bringing this technology to our school, we were not sure how it would be used by our teachers. We knew the capabilities of the software suite, but transitioning teachers to this new form of communication is always a difficult task. Fortunately, we have a tech savvy staff and I am very excited to see the collaborative taking shape and form. The wiki is probably the most successful part of Google Apps, as staff members can now post lessons, ideas, and concerns in a web interfaced wiki for others to see and respond. In the mere few weeks that we have used the wiki, we are now 40+ pages worth of information and resources. Teachers are grasping the power of the wiki and collaboration is now taking place. It will be an revolutionary year in terms of sharing, and I cannot wait to see how Google Apps will look like at our school by the end of the year. A big shout out to all staff members at school!
