  2. 2. At Number 10 Google Notebookhttp://www.google.com/notebook/#b=BDQbrSgoQg5qB77Al<br />This neat tool will allow the students to gather research notes on different subjects, and compile their notes into online notebooks for each subject.<br />
  3. 3. At Number 9 Canned Responses http://www.techvivo.com/gmail-labs-adds-canned-responses-save-time-with-faqs/<br />If you find yourself writing the same type of email over and over, use the Canned Responses feature in the Labs to create a template that you can use without having to type out the entire email every time. This would be great for a myriad of emails that a teacher regularly sends out such as weekly newsletters, homework or even snack rosters.<br />
  4. 4. Number 8 About this bookhttp://books.google.com/googlebooks/midterms.html <br />At the top left of the page of a book, clicking this link will give you helpful information such as the table of contents, related books, and a map of places mentioned in the book. This is great for digging deeper into a book. <br />
  5. 5. At Number 7 Google Sketch Uphttp://sketchup.google.com/index.html <br />If you need to draw 3D figures for class, use Google SketchUp. Great for simple math geometry or even more powerful viewing buildings etc. Pictures anything in 3D<br />
  6. 6. At Number 6Google Imageshttp://images.google.com/ <br />An incredible image search feature that provides tons of images that students/teachers can use to insert pictures into their reports/lessons to add visualization.<br />
  7. 7. At Number 5Google Wavehttp://wave.google.com/about.html <br />This is a relatively new Google App That is equal parts conversation and document. People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when.<br />
  8. 8. At Number 4 Get a Definition <br />This is obviously great for all ages and levels of education. If you want a definition without having to track down an online (or a physical) dictionary, just type <br />definition: “word" to find the definition of the word (i.e.: "definition: endoplasmic " will track down the definition of the word “endoplasmic").<br />
  9. 9. At Number 3Google Talkhttp://www.google.com/talk<br />This would be a great app for Classoom to Classroom exchanges. Has IM’ing, send files, and video Chat.<br />

  11. 11. At Number 1 Set reminders <br />Set reminders in your Google Calendar so that you never forget an appointment again. Choose from email, pop-up, or SMS reminders and even set when the reminder comes. Great for remembering meetings, appointments, birthdays, anniversaries etc. <br />
