Tool #4 Google Apps
This section of 11 Tools focused on Google Docs and Forms. Google Docs is an invaluable tool that I have used for sharing TONS of documents with other teachers-- spreadsheets with student information, planning documents for field trips, etc. I hadn't ever used the forms app but was very interested to learn of it. (I wonder why they call it forms when it only seems to create quizzes and tests...?) Useful, nonetheless. I will definitely keep this in mind for my students this year. This might be very helpful to me as an intervention specialist, working with students at a variety of levels and needing to constantly track their progress. Seems like creating the quizzes might be labor intensive but since they are saved indefinitely, it could pay off!
