Calling all teachers: Share your ideas and projects

Last week we rolled out some back to school features, many of them inspired by your requests and stories of using Google Docs in K-12 classrooms.

Now we're turning our sights to a new initiative. We want to collect your example projects and ideas for how to best use Google Docs (documents, presentations, spreadsheets, and forms) in the classroom. We'll collect your ideas and share them with all educators on our Docs page on the Google for Educators site. To do this, we first need your inspiration and ideas.
  • Are you using Google Docs in a K-12 classroom?
  • Have you created any group projects that use the collaborative features of docs, presentations, or spreadsheets?
  • Are you using spreadsheet forms to collect information from students or parents?
If you answered "yes" to any of these, we'd love to hear from you.

Learn more about what we're looking for and check out two example project ideas. Then, submit your own project idea by Sept 30, 2008. As a big "thank you" from us, we'll give out moleskin journals to the first 50 teachers who submit projects.
