Surprise, surprise - I am talking enthusiastically about Google Apps for Education! I attended two Google related sessions on Thursday 3/1; "Putting it all together with Google", and "Gone Google". These were presented by Teachers and Tech Staff personnel from Maine 207. Nothing too ground-breaking presented here, there was really too much information to be presented thoroughly. Google Docs, namely forms, were discussed here. It was interesting to see how Google forms + Flubaroo can be used to create online assessments that are immediately scored so that feedback can be provided instantly. In addition, the scores automatically populate a data sheet so that a summary page is immediately available.
It also became obvious to see how the Google Apps can be used to create flipped classroom opportunities.
