Micah Melton lives in San Francisco, California and works as a Teacher Librarian for the San Francisco Unified School District. He holds a M.L.I.S. from San Jose State University, a M.A. in Education from the University of San Francisco, and a M.Ed. in History from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Micah first started using Google Apps in 2006 while looking for a means to store his students’ documents. The collaborations that followed changed the nature and quality of his and other teachers’ students’ writing, and quickly altered the way many curricular projects are completed throughout the San Francisco Unified School District.

David Loertscher is a professor of library and information science at San Jose State University in California. He has written and presented internationally on a wide variety of topics connected to education and most recently the development of the learning commons in schools. His interest in Google Apps was kindled the first time he experienced the idea in both the spreadsheet and documents where collaborative work could be done. That innovation for teaching and learning has flowered into the use of many Web 2.0 tools and the development of knowledge building centers.
