For your Tool #4 post in your blog:
1. Create at least one document in Google Docs and share it with a few others on your campus or within your department. It could a team member, a department colleague, or another teacher with whom you plan a collaboration. Ask that person to comment or chat and real-time edit the document with you.
2. Create one form in Google Docs and send it via email to at least two other people and ask them to respond.
3. 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 have been able to send google documents to other teachers and music directors. I found this to be a very useful and quick way to communicate with others.
Google docs would be a great way to reduce paperwork in the classroom. Also students would be able to get feedback much more quickly. The Goggle forms could really streamline communication between team members and departments. Sharing documents could also make interdisciplinary teaching much more easy to implement in the classroom.
