And for Gmail users comes this big news (particularly if you use Mail in Google Apps): "Contextual gadgets in Gmail – like YouTube, Google Docs and Picasa previews – intelligently display relevant information from other systems as you read your email, so you can be more efficient without leaving your inbox. Starting today, third party developers can build Gmail contextual gadgets and distribute them in the Google Apps Marketplace."

This week brought several big annuncements for Google Apps (including, in most cases, Education Edition): Google Calendar gets a new look, New themes for forms in Google Docs, Drag images into Gmail messages, Google Voice open to students, Google Wave (Labs) open to all, and (most importantly) More Google applications coming for Google Apps customers.

Big news for Google Apps: Education Edition users... by fall (or summer with an opt-in feature), administrators will be able to allow users on the domain to use ANY Google services. That's right, that means, specialized search such as Books, Scholar, and News... it means Blogger and Reader... it means Picasa and YouTube. This is awesome. My main reason for being reluctant about encouraging educators to switch to Apps is now gone. :)

Wow. I suppose this (like LAUSD) is a good example to point folks toward who are concerned about Google Apps in schools: "Oregon is the first state in the nation to sign up for Google Apps for Education in K-12 classrooms. Google Apps are available for free to Oregon public schools on a voluntary basis and are designed to help schools improve digital literacy and reduce IT costs while maintaining the security of school and student data."

Here's a fantastic social project management application (which I've used a little previously) that now integrates with Google Apps via the Marketplace - and might also be valuable for an Education Edition domain: "Manymoon is the #1 team collaboration application for Google Apps and is trusted by thousands of businesses. Put your social network to use to securely get work done, instead of just talking about it."

Here's another great app in the marketplace for education (thanks to Doug Belshaw @dajbelshaw for pointing this one out): "MindMeister lets you create, share and collaboratively work on mind maps, making it easy to plan projects, exchange ideas and brainstorm online with friends and colleagues." It looks expensive though - unless there's an EDU version.

Dim Dim is another important app for education in the Google Apps Marketplace: "Face-to-face meetings used to be the only way to get things done. Now the best way to save money, time and travel is to collaborate over the Web with Dimdim."

This is probably the most important app available in the Google Apps marketplace... "Aviary is a powerful suite of browser-based design tools for people who create." As GCT Danny Silva (@iteachag) said, "who needs adobe." I'd add iLife (or at least Garageband). These tools are free and web-based. Awesome.

This is a game changer for Google Apps: Education Edition (for me). Suddenly Google Apps can do things a normal Google account can't: "The Google Apps Marketplace offers products and services designed for Google users, including installable apps that integrate directly with Google Apps. Installable apps are easy to use because they include single sign-on, Google's universal navigation, and some even include features that integrate with your domain's data."

This project management site is social in nature, includes Google Apps integration, and comes recommended by Katie Winchell at the California League of Middle School. I'm planning to play around with it, but have my eye on a few others too.
