If a particular discussion isn't working for you... vote with your feet and join another discussion - or start one yourself. There will be no formal facilitator assigned to the room, so if you see a need for leadership in the space, please provide it. :)

Google Apps to redefine your classroom
Already using Google Apps as a part of your work flow? This session will help you take Google Apps for Education to the next level. Learn how to find and use scripts to simplify your life by taking care of some of the more repetitive tasks that all teachers need to do (for example, creating and sharing folders with your students, or grading responses from a Google Form). Use the collaboration tools to collect, grade, and distribute to your classes, and model the editing process by using the comment feature. Expand your “bag of tricks” to help ease your workload, and to get students to have a voice in their own learning.

Program Highlights:
Setting up your classes with shared folders using a simple script.
Modelling collaboration for your students, and getting them to collaborate with you.
Getting your students collaborating with one another, and how you can evaluate their efforts.
Growing with Google - if you can dream it, there’s probably a script that will do it!
