Google, a world within the World!

1,328 views

Published on

In this presentation I refer a small part of the "immense Google world" while showing the extent to which it is embedded in my daily life simplifying personal work, group work and communication, not only academically as an educator, but also as a member of an extensive network of colleagues worldwide. I highlight a relevant task from my experience as an EFL educator as well as the importance of my having adopted some Google apps as part of an online professional development workshop I co-coordinated for 10 years. Finally, I show some of the apps I currently use when working with my online professional groups. Hopefully, it will clearly reflect the way Google users can benefit from adopting Google apps to maximize communication, collaboration and sharing with students and peers.
