The tools now available to us make classroom collaboration a snap. If you haven’t considered using Google Docs, you should (how many times have I said that on this blog or Twitter?!).
Here’s another great example of a teacher using Google Apps for Education to empower her students:
Saylor is using Google Apps for Education to create a virtual domain for her students. They can use word processors, spread sheets and graphic tools to create projects which are done entirely online.
The kids can share with a teacher, the kids can share with another student, or they can share with a small group if they’re working together,” Brooks said.
Saylor says what might be the best part is the feedback. Students can go online, view another student’s project and offer comments right there on the web page.
“It’s good to get feedback from people our own age cause they think like we do,” Alex said.
