Google Apps Beliefs Reaffirmed!

Last week I went on an ICT tour of schools in the Palmerston North region.  For some time I have been a believer in the power of Google Docs as a teaching tool in schools (an earlier post on this blog goes over my views on Google Apps).  It was reaffirming for me to see that a number of other schools have clearly seen the benefit of using Google Docs.  This was particularly evident at Ross Intermediate, where all students in the laptop programme class enthusiastically use it as their main word processing package.

Following on from this topic, I was please to see a letter I wrote to the magazine Interface ( a New Zealand magazine of the year) was used as an article in the latest issue.  I hope that our Google Apps journey will inspire others to see the benefits of this fantastic set of applications.


  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts - excellent to see NZ schools gaining so much from Google Apps (but I am a little biased - :-)

  2. Hello, I have just read your article in Interface magazine, I am now going to perservere with Google Apps. My school has just started to use Google Sites to create some syndicate websites. I have also dabbled with Google Docs. Not sure where to next but we will keep going.
