Introduction to GAFE by Diana Mancuso

For our Professional Activity Day yesterday, one of the items on our agenda was Google Apps for Education. The TCDSB became a GAFE board just last fall and so many teachers in my school haven't had the opportunity to explore the benefits of GAFE. As such, I volunteered to put together a little presentation to highlight a few of the key features that teachers and students may find useful as they delve into the world of Google Apps for Education. I struggled with this preso since there is so much I wanted to share but didn't want to overwhelm them with it all. Hence, this is merely a basic intro and by no means is it meant to be exhaustive nor comprehensive.

  1. I like this, I wished this was around when my girls were still in school. The school they went to used an app for all their doc. and projects that I did not have, and it was expensive to purchase, so they always had a few grades less marked on their work because of this. This sounds awesome and sounds great for both the student and the teacher!! and plus it's free!!!!

  2. Really interesting! I wish that this was around, not only for my daughters, but for myself!
