Additional Equipment: Google Apps For Education

I am thrilled that the pilot of Google Apps has been a success and will be implemented district wide next year.  (We will be requiring all staff to use GMAIL and CALENDAR - NO Outlook) I have been fortunate to be a part of that pilot and have used multiple Google tools with students and for myself.  With that being said, the iPad 2 will be extremely friendly toward the use of Google tools.

Google Apps that I will be using with students in 2011-2012 as of March 29, 2011

Google Mail

Share your life online with a blog - it's quick, easy and free - still working on how I can upload pics from iPad into a post (This is where Posterous comes in!)
