I come from a long line of teachers. My grandmother, my mother and my sister were/are teachers. I was born into the educational world and taught many things from a teachers point of view. I, of course, then went through the education system as student with the knowledge of how things really are on the other side of the desks. With this said, I am a huge advocate of low cost and easy to manage software that helps teachers not only do their job better, but do their job with more ease.
I Am An Advocate of Google Apps
With that said, I am an advocate of Google Apps the Education Edition. I have hands on experience using this system and I can say that it is really the easiest and most cost effective tool a school system can implement. Here is why:
It simply costs less to implement and less to maintain. Teachers, administrators and IT professions together should appreciate the cost effectiveness of Google Apps.
Google Apps is easy to configure, maintain, customize and manage. What IT professional would want their job to be easier?
Increased Teacher Productivity
This is the biggest reason why I am all about Google Apps in the educational world. Google Apps truly increases teacher productivity by decreasing the time spent on filtering out SPAM mail, increasing the opportunities to collaborate with other teachers on projects and events, as well as the convenience of being able to log on to the same email interface, no matter what computer they are on.
