Using Google Apps for Education has streamlined my classes in ways I never thought possible.  Blogger has opened my classroom walls to the world and enabled my students to grow through feedback from students from around the world.  Sites has allowed my students the opportunity to organize, store, and connect their work across the continuum of Middle School showcasing growth and development in these formative years.  Both are integral elements of the teaching and learning process in my class - and I hope they will be for you as well.
