I have learned a lot about Gmail, and I am excited to put my knowledge to use! First of all, I like the ability to group contacts. I just created a group for the elementary teachers at my school, and I am planning to create a group for my students this upcoming school year. Second, I like the idea of having the calendar displayed when Gmail is up. Though it seems that Labs is not actually around any more, I learned from my own searching that some of the options listed in Labs are actually now imbedded within Gmail. Lastly, I learned about adding labels to emails, and I think those - along with the filtering option - will help me clear the clutter in my inbox. I have already started labeling and filtering messages, and I am planning to add more filters later.
This upcoming school year, I intend to form a club for my kids. Secondly, I appreciate that the calendar is visible whenever Gmail is open. My favorite tool that I used extensively this school year was Google Chat since it allowed my students and I to have instantaneous conversations skibidi toilet, rather than sending and receiving emails back and forth.
