Welcome to Google for Educators

Google recognizes the central role that teachers play in breaking down the barriers between people and information, and we support educators who work each day to empower their students and expand the frontiers of human knowledge. This website is one of the ways we're working to bolster that support and explore how Google and educators can work together.
As a start, we're inviting you to share your best ideas for using technology to innovate in the classroom.

Some more Information

From the Google for Educators, website: The new site features a tutorial for teachers on conducting better Web searches. Other tools include Google Earth, three-dimensional mapping software based on satellite imagery; SketchUp, a 3-D software program that lets students design buildings and explore geometric concepts; Google Book Search, which finds books that match students’ search terms; blog and photo-sharing software; and word-processing applications that allow students to work simultaneously on the same document from different computers.

Google also has an Application for Education website.

I just came across a blog that wasn't too fond of Google for Educators...they're claiming it's just a "promotional stunt". Interesting, I'm wanting to see for myself, though.
