    As seen in the latest Google Teacher Newsletter:

    "Thanks to all of you who have expressed interest in attending the next Google Teacher Academy, which we mentioned in our last newsletter. As promised, here is the detailed information:

    The next GTA will take place on Tuesday, November 18th at our offices in New York City.

    The GTA is our free training program for K-12 educators. It's an intensive, one-day event (8:30am-7:30pm) where 50 selected participants get hands-on experience with our free products and other technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, collaborate with exceptional educators, and immerse themselves in an innovative corporate environment.

    Upon completion, GTA participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other K-12 educators in their local regions.

    We're now taking applications and encourage educators from around the U.S. and the world to apply. Applications are due October 10, 2008.

    To learn more about how to apply for the GTA NYC 2008, visit:"

    Hi all,

    I've been asked for suggestions on how to create e-mail addresses for students so that they can use Google Docs and other Google apps. The only thing is that the schools don't want their stundents really using the e-mail accounts for personal communications because they don't want to take on the liability issue.

    Do any of you have any suggestions? I would really appreciate any help you can provide. I am also going to post this question in the GCT group.
