Last week, Avni and I met with the Instructional Technology team for Hanover County Public Schools. Together we came up with some interesting ideas for how Google might be useful in the classroom, many of which had never occurred to me before:

They also introduced me to the posters and activities described on Google's education site.

I was impressed with how progressive they were in terms of bringing technology into the classroom. We're talking about K-12 students, so I asked about how to prevent students from goofing off or playing games. Their response was that, while that's a valid concern, the greater risk was having schools lag in technology adoption and letting fear stifle innovation.
