Teachers, students and administrators need means and methods of addressing logistical needs in a manner that lets them focus on the truly important work within a school. Real-time data collection, automated feedback, and creative learning within an internet browser are not features that require schools to invest in numerous expensive tools and software. Google Apps for Education, combined with effective implementation of easy-to-learn scripts, can expedite the data collection process in a manner that allows teachers and students to spend their time focusing on what matters: learning. Tools such as Docs, Spreadsheets and Forms, if implemented thoughtfully, can provide a backend workflow that allows for them to more effectively use creative tools such as Blogger and YouTube. Additionally, effective use of these tools on the part of administrators allows them to acquire better diagnostic information about teacher needs, give timelier feedback on observations, and make better use of their time within the context of overseeing the curriculum within the building.

This presentation discuss ways in which every teacher can googlize the workflow within their courses, classrooms, and schools. Introductions to tools such as Doctopus, Form Mule, Autocrat, YouTube video editor, and Google+ Communities will be given. Additionally, hands-on time will be spent working through some examples of how this might work within the structure of each of the above listed entities. Through using the tools available in Google Apps for EDU, teachers, students and administrators can automate numerous time consuming activities and save time for meaningful, pedagogically sound practices.
