Google Apps for Education (GAFE) has many aspects to it- the best part being that it is completely free!
How do you get the most out of it? How can you use it to improve student reading and writing?
This session focuses on using the apps available within GAFE such as Documents and Forms to help you become a better teacher of Literacy. It will show how Drawings and Documents have been used in conjunction with a class blog to explicitly teach genre in writing. It will also showcase how Forms and Spreadsheets have been used within Google Sites to monitor student progress in reading and assist with report writing.
This session goes beyond the tools and looks at the practical application of GAFE in the classroom environment.
Not using GAFE already? You won't need any more convincing after this session!
