TITLE: Using Google Apps to Foster Global Collaborations

PRESENTER: Lisa Thumann, CMSCE, Rutgers University (USA)
FORMAT: Presentation
SHORT DESCRIPTION: One of the most effective ways to get students collaborating with each other is to use tools that are easily accessible. If the tools are browser agnostic, have no demand for installations or updates, and are intuitive, the collaboration is more likely to be effective. Together, let’s look at Google Forms, Docs and Sites as a suite of tools to facilitate and foster Global collaborations.
TRACK: Teacher

This is an invaluable opportunity for professional development. Please follow the hashtag #GlobalEd10 to stay informed.
