Google Apps 101: Using Gmail

Leslie Wiles
I'm glad that this class has made me take the time to learn about the extra capabilities of Gmail beyond sending messages. For my own organizational needs, I created a few contact groups of teacher teams and student groups that will streamline contacting them. I have never used the email filters before. I put in a few filters and it will be interesting to see how that works with my inbox. Tasks will be good for students to use like an assignment planner book. The checklist aspect of it is helpful and easy to access the information. Maybe they will be more apt to use the task feature on their laptop than is the information was buried in a paper notebook. I think Keep could be helpful to my students. It seems to be a good organizational tool for them. Since it's like a virtual sticky note and bulletin board, students can write any thoughts or reminders as needed and post them on Keep for safe keeping. They can use images or hand draw on the notes, so they can be creative or as descriptive as they need to be. I want the students to use Keep for writing a paper. They can compile their notes in Keep. The notes can be arranged in the order that they want to present the information in the paper. They will create a Google doc and can slide the notes from Keep unto the doc to help them.
