Welcome to the 20% Project!
Some background: Shadi and Heather attended the (first) Ontario Google Apps Summit and were inspired by how Google operates. At Google, they spend 80% of their work week on Google appointed projects, and 20% on projects of their own initiative. Some of those 20% projects have resulted in products, apps and features that we now use everyday!
So we thought, why can't we do this in our classrooms?! Our school board is rolling out Google Apps to everyone, and it is a great platform for collaboration and publication.
We hope you follow along with our two classes projects :)
