Today, we started training buildings. Google Apps for Education for the Dublin City Schools. How exciting for teachers and students. Teachers are getting their accounts, learning how to log in, seeing what will be available and being introduced to Google Documents. What a huge spectrum of learners. Some are users of Google Apps and others have never logged into a Google Account.
They are just floored when they see that you can type in a document at the same time as another user. Wow. You can see the teachers thinking of ways to use this in the classroom. It is going to be outstanding to see this roll out. Hopefully, they will not try to jump in too quickly. Apps accounts are up and running, but mail is not flowing in until after Spring Break.
Here are a couple videos that teachers can watch if they want to see more info, or they could not make it to their building's session #1 training.
