Segment #4: Classroom Applications - Cool things that we (or others) are doing with Google in the classroom.

Using calendars for content. Assign a fun fact about about the historical event you’re studying. Each student is responsible for a few facts on a shared calendar. Other classes, parents or community members can subscribe. Consider conservation ideas for Earth Day, have students create their own writing prompts, etc. http://goo.gl/jjqy0

Use Google Docs to create Mad Libs. It’s a good writing exercise for kids and provides ample opportunity to discuss parts of speech. Use them as filler when you have tads of transition time between things; super fun with a class full of Chromebooks.
