Going Mobile with Google
Google Apps were amazingly well in a computer lab or on a laptop, but they can also be leveraged in a way that takes mobile learning with the student and gives them unique experiences where the students doesn't have to be anchored to a chair for learning to take place. Since schools have different resources available to them and different policies regarding the usage of devices in school (i.e. restrictions,BYOD, cellphones, etc.), this is meant to reflect examples of the way in which Google Apps could be used with mobility in mind.

Google Apps on the iPad
Even if you and/or your school has decided to "Go Google", it doesn't mean you can't have a good experience on a non-Google product like the iPad. In fact, the beauty of the majority of Google's products and apps is that it's not tied down to specific hardware but anchored to the web. With that in mind, it's crucial to remember that if you want to use Google Apps on the iPad they will work. How well and to what extent is what educators and students need to be aware of. Apps highlighted are: Drive, YouTube, Capture, Blogger, Google Search, Google Play Books, Chrome, and more!
