You might have noticed that Google has decided to get involved in education. A recent AP article describes the early steps of packaging the “Google Suite” with tutorials and examples for teachers. These are solid guides to help use Docs, Spreadsheets, Google Earth, Maps, etc. in the classroom. What the articles don’t mention is that Google has enlisted WestEd and Chris Walsh to develop The Infinite Thinking Machine, a video/blog with eight regular contributors. I have the pleasure of being one of these folks. We all make a post / week on whatever catches our fancy. There is no bias toward Google in the posts as our challenge is to contribute ideas around educationally sound integration of technology. Each week, Chris also hosts a video that energetically highlights other good teaching and learning ideas.
