Finally some new ideas for teachers using Google Apps!
on June 20, 2016
I don't often write reviews on Amazon, however, this book is a GREAT resource. As a teacher in a district that uses Google Apps, this was one of the first books I read that gave me new ideas, instead of more of the same basic tips. It may only be 122 pages, but don't let that turn you away from purchasing this book. Many pages have valuable resources on it that require time to try them out and find what is best for you. Although I finished reading the text, I have a long way to go as far as exploring all the tools mentioned.
I labeled a few things I thought would have a significant improvement on my instruction, and will start creating those HyperDocs for the next school year. I showed a few colleagues who also value google apps as a means to enhance instruction and they all asked if they could borrow the book. Immediately they commented on how much they loved the layout/format of the writing and tools. I had to say no because it is not a book that goes on a shelf when you finish reading it. Between the resources in this book, and Alice Keeler's book, I think the way myself and co-teacher implement google apps into our instruction will be more engaging for the students, and lead to higher student success in our class. Myself and Co-Teacher thank the authors for a well put together book.
(One personal note: I generally purchase my books in the Kindle format, however, for this one I would recommend buying the physical copy)
