Also, we are definitely looking to hear how you and your students use different Google apps and features. Perhaps your students use Google Docs to collaborate on science experiments? A world geography class my use Google news feeds from around the world to research current events. Share with us what great things Google does for you.

Glen, remind me during the webinar tonight on some methods I would recommend to you on how to request student access to features students have in Google Apps for Education (GAFE). I say this as I am the one responsible for establishing our GAFE domain 2.5 years ago and currently manage two different domains for our public schools and private college. Although, the only folks using GAFE from our local college are my pre-service students.
I, unfortunately, was involved in school meetings until long after the webinar ended . I hoped to find information on how GAFE requests can effectively be made to my district administrator. Please send me a private message in community on how I might do this (so we don't take up bandwidth in this discussion.)
Hello everyone! I am looking forward to my opportunity of sharing some new Google features. I don't want to give them away but can you say mobile virtual tours and global collaboration? In knowing how fast webinars go and limited time for sharing resources I will pass along with post from Mashable regarding a new virtual museum approach developed as a partnership by Google. Take a look and enjoy these resources Google Brings History to Life With Online Exhibitions
PE - in the gym- I have tried using such things at one station out of four - using google for them to find something, or that I've found for them. This keeps most of them busy and moving most of the time. BUT - you have to cover up every thing when you are using balls! So I have to have the computer or iPad in an off the way place so it won't get destroyed by an errant ball.
The Google Drive for Teachers document is excellent! I know teachers at my school will appreciate the screenshots to help them navigate Drive. I think this document will persuade even the most reluctant teacher to use it.
What suggestions does everyone have to encourage teachers to allow students to collaborate using Google Drive?
The webinar was wonderful. I am really enjoying Google Drive. One thing I am using the drive for is data collection and keeping the data. I love all the cute backgrounds I can use for the data collection. To play with that and see a cute background makes taking data a bit more fun. I love that I can take that data and put it into a chart instantly that can be put into the spreadsheet. I also love that I can download the information into a variety of formats. My supervisor recently asked me for my data collection and I was able to just bring it up very easily. l am so loving working with Google drive. I have used Google drive with my students to have them work collaboratively between schools, since my students are spread around the district.
The webinar was awesome. I learned lots of new things. I knew about google maps and have shown that to everyone, including students. I didn't know about the flight info. I am very interested using voice to find things. In elementary, not many know how to spell correctly enough to get the info, this will help. I am wondering about my Spanish speaking students - will it recognize the words. I'm looking forward to finding out.
Here are some additional resources I did not get to share during webinar as a result of time restrictions.
Has anyone used Scoology yet? It is free. It has many uses: dicussion area, networking, setting up assessments capabilities, there is a centralized posting place for teachers and students. There is also a grade book system you can set up. I browsed around but not done anything more than that at this point. I love purchasing from teachers pay teachers site. I am soon going to put some of my ideas on there for purchase as well. What a great opportunity to get some quality work to buy from an ACTUAL Teacher.
