THIS IS A BLENDED COURSE: School districts across New York State and around the nation are switching to Google Apps for their students' needs. This is not only due to the considerable financial savings to districts, but also in order to help their students meet the "Four C's" of 21st Century Learning: Critical Thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. The focus of this class is to help teachers learn how to effectively use Google Apps in their K-12 classrooms to provide students outcomes which are a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies. Teachers will create lessons which incorporate Google Apps such as: Google Docs, Google Earth, Calendar/Gmail, Blogger, Google Literary Trips, Blogger, SketchUp, Picasa, and many more. With this, the teacher learns how to collect evidence for their APPR binders.

They will also engage in readings, reflections, and create sample annual goals.
