One thought on “20 collaborative Google Apps activities for schools | Ditch That Textbook

  1. Love the title of the web site: «ditch that textbook»! Thanks for sharing Google Apps. I think it could work as a great supplement in the language classroom. In terms if ditching the textbook, I think the main challenge is economical. The law of education states that educational material should be for free. In primary and lower secondary we can hence not expect or demand pupils to own personal laptops or tablets. What is more, I think an issue is that textbooks are written by professionals who mind the Knowledge Promotion curriculum, whereas Google Apps is collaborative and made by peers. My experience is that critical awareness of sources is still a skill that comes hard for pupils at lower levels. However, I’m delighted that we can increasingly facilitate varied and exciting digital learner activities!
