Google has just launched an excellent site to help teachers, administrators and technology staff get started using technology effectively in school. They took lessons learned from other schools and compiled a guide to bringing learning online with the best resources, tips and tools. It starts with defining the goals, investing in internet access, building the team, offering web tools and managing the change.
The guide has some excellent resources and tips, but also includes case stories from different schools. It is available in 10 different languages too.
This is an invaluable resource to any school/district that is looking to go digital or even expand what they do now. Take a look.
Here is a short video about it too:
