Here is a podcast recording of my WPP progress.
I decided to start by implementing Google Docs. As an English teacher, I needed a place for students to be able to type and save their work. I had students create Google Drive accounts. They created the Drive and then were able to type their assignments on Google Docs. There were other parts of the project were students needed to use other technology like Audacity, Mixbook, Publisher, etc. They were able to upload their files directly to Google Drive and share them with me. I also created an Edmodo account so students could get announcements from me and share their progress along the way. They could also chat with each other for help or questions.
