The North Saanich Middle School team is implementing Google Apps for Education (GAFE) and Google Read Write in order to support grade 6/7 students in an inclusive model middle school. Their hope is that GAFE will allow all students within the classroom the opportunity to customize, collaborate, share and differentiate their learning both at school and at home.
The team is blogging about their experience including details about what has surprised them, what stumbling blocks they’ve encountered, and what they would next time. A recent post includes a terrific video showcasing students describing how and why they use Google Read’n Write for their writing assignments.
