What is Google Apps for Education?
It comes wth unlimited storage which makes documenting students work and the creation of digital portfolios a breeze. These portfolios can be transferred throughout the students time in school, through transition and can really help teachers to measure real progress.
Google offers so much more though. Continuing the themes of Creativity, Communication and Collaboration, students can use these apps to work together on shared documents, chat using hangouts, and create their own surveys.
Below is a link to more information about Google Forms and how they can be used.
General consensus from students was to have these fortnightly and at either 4:00 or 5:00.
I would like to eventually open this up to our partner schools to join up the experience students may get in the schools when on practice.
