    How do you use Google in grade 2? Share? Comment? Assignments?
    I have an idea how I may use forms and presentation, but docs? Unless I use it solely like MSWord.

    Pictorial timelines (think book reports for students to show comprehension), presentations similar to PPT in collaborative learning., using spreadsheets to produce graph and charts, math, social studies (NO, not algebra), drafts of stories, shared with teacher for comments and checks on projects, software that creates video/animation for projects, lib guides, research, dictionary function, and the list goes on. Hope it helps.

    WOW! You use it a lot. Guess I need to start playing, or come to you.

    OK, I admit that I am quite fond of Google and all it brings to the table. Have you checked out the new apps (free!) on Chrome that include a quick and interactive way to do Exit Tickets? I so have to look into that!

    Go to Google Chrome Apps. There are a ton of them and quite a number for education and teachers. These are above and beyond the normal Google apps that you can use for everything. Most are free, so take a little time and do some browsing! Enjoy - and no, I don't work for Google or Chrome, but I do love the browser and what they bring to the table for education. :)
