Have you played with or used Google Apps for Edu yet? A number of schools in Victoria are now using this online, cloud based suite of resources to engage with students and teachers online.

Sign up for Gmail and start playing around - try Drive and Calendar and see how your precious information can be shared between your devices - and your family and friends.


Want to know more about Google Apps? I'm thinking of blogging more about the way the schools I work with are using this great resource - would you be interested in reading that?
