services to help your business or school. This is a hosted service that lets
businesses, schools, and institutions use a variety of Google products --

If you own the domain example.com and you sign up for Google Apps
services, everyone at your organization will get:
A custom email address (email@example.com)
Tools for word processing
Spreadsheets and presentations
A shared calendaring system
Tools for creating web pages and sites for your business
Access to a flexible intranet system

Matariki Presentation Example
This project will allow students to collaborate on the work involved in learning new vocabulary for any subject area.
As individuals or in pairs, they can research a term and report their findings on one slide in a Google Presentation. As each term is defined on a separate slide, the presentation grows, creating a collaborative project that can be reviewed with the entire class.
