I would like to set up iGoogle accounts through Google for Education for my 5th and 6th graders. I would like for these students to have their own iGoogle Homepage with widgets to get to their teachers’ blogs, shared and private Google Docs and presentations, use the To-Do list to keep up with their agendas, and gmail accounts to send homework, projects, and questions to their teachers and when working on group projects. I am not sure as to how to begin setting this up. I have gone to http://www.google.com/educators/index.html and looked at the tools, but don’t know what my next step is. I am looking for someone to advice me, send me to the place where to start, etc. I am stuck. Has any technology integration specialist or teacher done this and is willing to help me get started?

  1. I have found using google apps, http://google.com/apps , for all of my websites to setup email accounts, i.e. buck@randomoccurrences.com and have had few problems but one simple email to google support team and they’re all fixed. You can setup email accounts manually or by uploading an excel spreadsheet.
