Google Apps for Education

Moata rau

As a facilitator working in schools and kura I am fortunate enough to see and hear so many success stories involving learners, teachers, whānau and the wider community. Collaborative tools such as Google Apps for Education are very topical as combined with effective pedagogy have the ability to empower the relationship within schools and kura.

Here are some stories from the superb Enabling e-Learning site. I have chosen these stories as they demonstrate how the tool is used and the rationale or pedagogy to support them. Key themes in this stories include Māori and Pasifika learners, teaching as inquiry, collaboration, ubiquitous learning and sharing.
