Teachers are you looking for a method to foster collaboration skills in your class? As classroom teachers we grappled with the same questions - but came to one answer - Google Apps. At times it can be very challenging to accomplish the 21st century skill of collaboration within a busy classroom. Not to worry, in this session participants will learn how to collaborate more with your students by utilizing several different Google apps. This session will focus on four collaboration tools offered by Google. Participants will learn how to use some apps created by Google including: docs, sites, blogger, and groups to foster collaboration.
