This is a very time-relevant module specially with so much emphasis these days on cloud-based computing. The best thing about implementing Google Apps in educational environment is that it requires such minimum training. The lesson plan addresses the NETS-S standards appropriately and uses the overlapping strategies of Cooperative Learning and Technology Integration very well.

Technical Remarks:

I think this is a very relevant lesson plan. Many public and private schools are using Google Apps. I think a more specific lesson plan for each type of document would be very useful, since there are so many features available. As for instructional strategies, sharing and collaborating with others is a great motivation for teachers and students. I’m glad that one to one assistance is required since general presentation aren’t sometimes as effective, it all depends on the technology skills of each student.
