Google Apps for Education is a suite of free web-based tools to supplement (or replace) traditional office applications. Using cloud technology, Google Apps allow multiple users to simultaneously write, edit and publish documents in real-time; increasing opportunities for collaboration and enhancing productivity. Google Apps are used in thousands of schools and universities worldwide to improve teaching and learning outcomes.
Darren Flynn, a teaching librarian based in a West Yorkshire academy, has used Google Apps for Education extensively over the past three years in his own teaching practice, and provides support and training to other school staff. He has organised this workshop to explore ways Google Apps can be used in the library and information world based on tried and tested techniques, with time built in to test practical examples.

N.B. To take part in practical activities attendees will need to bring their own internet-enabled device (laptop, tablet, smartphone) for the duration of the workshop.
