Tuesday Tech Tip: GoogleApps Features

Since we’re unveiling some exciting new features in GoogleApps, I thought I’d invite you all to take a deeper look at any feature you’ve not yet tried.

Docs:
* Commenting, chatting, and discussion features!
* Create and collaborate using documents, GoogleForms (surveys), presentations, and drawings!
* Organize your work into collections!  Share an entire collection!

Calendar: Why use Google Calendar?
* A quick how-to video for first-time Calendar users.
* Create and embed a classroom calendar into your webpage!  Easy!

Mail:
* Label your mail.  Use as many labels as you like!
* Threaded conversations!
* Here’s a how-to for creating contact groups in GMail.

We’re excited to dive deeper into GoogleApps tools that will help engage students and staff to collaborate, create, and share.

As always, if you have questions about using any of these features, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
