Google Docs http://www.google.com/google-d-s/tour1.html This application is very useful for collaboration— where comments, suggestions, variations, and even tangential or unrelated information can often expand everyone's thinking and "take" on a topic in new and useful ways. Of course it can also lead to chaos, but if there are several collaborators, there's usually someone who can get everyone back on a more linear course, if that's what's needed. Google Image Search The color matching feature could also be very useful in finding graphics or other images for webpages, where the color palette should be unified (not a crazy quilt). I'm not necessarily advocating copying Google images for use in webpages, blogs, wikis, etc. (though plenty of people do just that), by the way. Many times what I personally am looking for is how a particular kind of image would look in a specific color palette. Often, i can then create an image myself that's similar to what I've seen online. The mashup possibilities make Google Tools fascinating —and potentially very useful indeed! Google Maps http://maps.google.com/ Google Earth or Sky Google Reader Google Scholar http://scholar.google.com.ar/ It can be used as a search engine to track scholarly articles by year. Once you find what you are looking for, retrieve the article from the UOP library and print it out. Goggle Blog Search Google Notebook Google notebook pages can be saved as a free standing URL. That means that you can set up a nice little classroom area as a freestanding URL and link to it from a variety of other resources. Here is a page to show you what is meant. Google Notes It looks like a personal notespace for you which can of course be shared. There's a lot of potential to be gained from splitting things up into sections, and of course opening numerous notebooks, some or all of which could be shared. MOST of us already have these accounts. That's one of the elegances of Google's offerings. If you have a Gmail account then you have an ID and login to this range of other tools.
