Even More

We've set up a Google Moderator to drive this session. Please only submit tools you'd like to discuss with regards to education (for example Picasa, Sketchup, or Google+). 

The tools listed here have not been covered elsewhere in the agenda. Please vote for the tool you'd most like to learn more about - and please feel free to submit "even more" tools if you like. The top 5 tools will be selected as the topic of a round table discussion during the "Even More" segment of the day, which will be run in the "jigsaw" format (where one representative from each team learns about each tool and then returns to their team to share).

As you explore the tool, answer these questions:
  1. What is it? How does it work? What's special about it?
  2. How might it be useful for educators and students?
  3. What else do you want to learn about it?
We recommend setting up shared collaborative notes in a Doc, and then posting a link in the comment section below.

Finally, you will have approximately 2-3 minutes to share what you've learned when you return to your your own team. (Each individual should share in the 20 minutes allotted.)

A growing collection of 47 short tutorials on everything from Google Earth, to Calendar, to Gmail. Listed as one of the top podcasts in the Education and Learning section of iTunesU!

This is the most comprehensive guide to all of the features and tools included with Google Apps for education. This is the place to find the answer to even the most obscure questions you might have. 

These groups were created to build a community of Google Apps for Education users to support and share ideas related to the integration of Google Apps in the classroom. Joining the midwest regional group will give you access to the technical support help forum and notification of important updates and regional meet-ups.
