Google technologies can pull far-flung places into your classroom and make historical events come alive for your students. Students can express themselves through blogs, collaborative writing, and slideshows. Google provides the necessary tools to bring your classroom or educational institution into the 21st century, while also giving you the means to protect users' privacy. As a teacher, you can leverage these technologies to share lesson plans and other resources throughout your institution. This Short Cut is a companion to the Setting Up Google Apps Standard Edition Short Cut, and focuses specifically on using Google Apps and various other Google technologies, such as Google Earth, Picasa, and Notebook, in an educational environment.

"Good overview of Google in Ed." - by Matt Ledding on 19-FEB-2010

There are  other things that could be said... self grading quizzes, and the leveraging of the new tools that many are quite sure of how to use well yet... (wave and buzz).

But it gets key concepts in quick, and could be useful to present the possibility of bringing Google to your school.
