Why Schools are Turning to Google Apps

Principal Jason Levy, who helped usher in Google Apps for New York’s Intermediate School 339 (see the PBS documentary below) finds that 47% of students now perform at grade level for math, up from 27%.

Other classroom experiments confirm that technology in education helps to boost student interest.

“People talk a lot about kids — that they can’t focus and sustain their concentration. Well, neither can I,” admits Levy. Embracing children’s need to be social, combined with their rapid adoption of technology, is an organic way to work with the grain of human curiosity.

In addition to the obvious benefits of collaboration and familiarity with technology. At Notre Dame, for instance, Engineering students keep a running e-portfolio of the classroom projects with Google Sites.
