Developing Students as Researchers Using Google Apps

In this session you will learn how to use Google Apps, with a specific focus on Google Docs, Google Sites, Google Groups, Blogger and some Tools in the Google Apps Market place to help students develop their research skills by planning, designing, and reporting a small-scale empirical study . The focus is on the pedagogy underpinning the use of the tools rather than the technology itself. The session focuses on high school students and geared towards higher education but middle school teachers can adapt it in any way.
