Google Redesigns Its Education Site

Google in Education recently launched its redesigned website in an effort to make navigation easier for teachers, schools, and students.

According to Mindshift, KQED's ed-tech blog, the main page is now "better organized," though much of the content offered remains the same. Listed under classroom tools is a link to Google Apps, which opens up myriad collaboration tools and lesson plans that are searchable by subject and grade level.

New this year is the News and Calendar feature, which lists upcoming workshops and conferences related to Google's education-related endeavors, and an online booklet that highlights some of the ways that teachers, students, and organizations used Google resources in 2011. Teachers can also now connect on the Google+ page for educators and share ideas for lessons and the latest in education news with one another.
