The Google Apps Workshop provided a quick look at many Google Apps that have the potential to enhance the ‘learning community’ in both the F2F and online portions of the writing classes I teach so the two apps I have chosen to weave into the framework of these writing classes are Google Calendar and Google Docs.
The reason I chose these two apps to incorporate into the framework of my courses is twofold: (1) students will have access to the Calendar in order to keep informed of deadlines and scheduled events; and (2) students will have access to Google Docs where they can enhance their writing skills through collaboration and peer reviewing.
As I further my quest to seamlessly weave these ‘OogleGoogle Apps’ into my writing courses, I realize that I will need some additional assistance from my mentors. I have much to learn as I have just touched ‘the tip of the iceberg’ so to speak! Thank you for the introduction to the world of GOOGLE!
