A Blended Learning Ecosystem Built Within the Google Apps Core Suite
Dream with me for a second. What if we could achieve the "verbs" of what makes blended learning such a fantastic methodology by using tools that anyone with an internet connection can access 24/7. Through the use of the Google Apps Core Suite (Docs, Sites, Calendar, Mail) we are able to leverage tighter feedback loops and provide student-centric digital spaces for collaboration and sharing. We have access to an easy to use space for legacies and portfolios of higher level project(s), and ridiculously simple access points via mail and chat to the big three interactions we need to leverage; student/teacher, student/student, and student/content.
