Here is my Docs Preso from Google Teacher Academy Chicago:

Link Library:

Thanks to everyone who collaborated: Thomas Barrett, Tara Rossi, Barry Bachenheimer, Liz B. Davis, Lucy Gray, Kenneth Shelton, and many others.
I met so many amazing people and can't wait to collaborate with them.
Apply, apply, apply to GTA NYC!!!!!

I love your title!

I'm giving a Google Docs presentation at our County Office of Ed at end of October.

It's a ninety-minute, hands-on session, and we'll be covering Documents and Presenter. Participants will also upload, convert to other formats, work with the templates, and invite collaborators. We will then demo Forms, embedding a presentation, and graphs.

We're worried we may be trying to cover too much. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hi Eric,
I only had 25 minutes so I just touched the surface. My advice is to stay away from Google apps for ed and using google docs through apps with students. There was so much interest in that but I got totally sidetracked. Google Apps for ed is a 90 minute class in itself! (or more!)
Will you share your preso when you are done?

One more thing- make sure they set up their time zone, I always for get to tell people this and it is a big deal!
Also, organization of folders is another biggie.
