Google offers an expanding range of free, web-based applications. One of the great things about the Google products is that they use a single login. (How to get a Google account)

One option for teachers is to sign up for Google Apps, which requires them to create a domain and manage their own users. This can get a little complicated, especially if you are using an existing domain. I prefer to work with the Google applications outside of the Google Apps interface- this way, my students can continue to use their login and resources long after they leave my class.

Collaboration is a key part of the Web 2.0 digital classroom. In order for students to collaborate, they need to know how to find each other. I have written instructions on how to set up and share a contact list with your students. You can access instructions here: Contact Lists
