Jazz up your Classes with GOOGLE APPS by Rita Zeinstejer

Do you have a gmail account? If you do, you need to know that there are over 25 Google Apps which can be successfully integrated into your account and into your EFL classes.
If you do not have a gmail account, then you'll now have the chance to open one and enjoy the so many tools and gadgets Google offers users for free... Or just choose the ones that meet your needs …

Several Google Apps will be shown and described during this presentation, together with lots of ideas on how to integrate them into your classes so that you and your students can work collaboratively, learn how to make presentations, create, store and share documents online, publish papers and project work to authentic audiences, work on your files from any pc, store all of your files and access them from anywhere, design your personal portfolios, collaborate and share ideas for group work, share online documents, presentations, and spreadsheets using Google Drive, including Documents, Forms, Spreadsheets, Presentations and Drawings.

Differences between Google the Search Engine and Google the Browser, together with examples of how to use both, as well as tips to become a faster, smarter, more accurate web searcher will be posed.

Google Plus, the newest social networking website from Google, will be analysed in situ together with its possible uses in the classroom for collaborative purposes, and the new Google+ Communities application will also be explored and its features underlined.

Google recently rolled out the possibility of steaming and recording Google+
Hangouts. Learn how you can break down your classroom walls by using it for small projects or even as a year-long archive of lectures.
