Gaga for Google in the Twenty-First Century Advanced Placement Language Classroom
Adams, Devon Christopher
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v82 n2 p96-100 Nov-Dec 2008
The migration of online educational needs to tools like Google applications, coupled with the realization that today's twenty-first-century students are digital natives who have lived their entire lives exposed to current technology, forces educators to find ways to use technology to enhance traditional curriculum. In this article, the author examines how one program, Advanced Placement Language and Composition, incorporates Web 2.0 tools including several Google Applications (Gmail, Docs, notebook, personalized homepage, Web pages, calendar, blogger, and talk) into its high school curriculum. Furthermore, the author addresses the gap between students and teachers that occurs cross-generationally in a discussion of successful technology best practices in teaching and learning as seen by a baby boomer teacher, a Gen X teacher, and the N-Gen students taught daily.
