In this task we looked into all that google has to offer. One of the perks of having an account is being able to set up a calendar. I set up my calendar for school because I feel that this can be a great resource for my parents who wish to be "in the know" as to what's going on in my classroom. I can use this calendar to list my class moms for the week, when our programs are, and any kind of other Kindergarten-specific event. I'm sure I'll have many parents appreciative for something like this - especially since many of my parents are so tech savvy!
I also like Google Docs. If you don't have Microsoft Office on your computer, you can still create, open, and edit documents via Google Docs. I don't have microsoft office on my personal laptop so this will come in very handy.
One of the other items I found fun to play around with was google earth. I thought the 3-D veiw of the earth was pretty neat. I played around with it looking at my neighborhood and then went to the Grand Canyon! Now it's only a matter of time before they give 360 degree tours of everyone's homes!
