Thing #7

I use Google Tools almost daily when I am on the computer. I have an igoogle homepage which has many gadgets such as weather, news, translations, pictures, etc. I have used Google Earth with my students to explore locations throughout the world at just in Spring Branch. The 3D Tours and historical imagery helps the visit places without leaving the classroom. In Science, you can view the terrain of the ocean floor and surfaces. I would like to explore further the use of Google Doc. which allows students to create and share documents online. As more and more of my students use the computer for projects, research, and learning, there is a greater need to share and edit this information. I would like to tyr this next year.


  1. Excellent ideas! Make sure you come back and share some of the things your students do with Google docs on your blog next year! We love to hear about student products/projects!

  2. Thank you for your comment. I am eager to try some of these things out with my students, and even more excited about learning how other teachers have used this in the classroom
