GAfE 4 Littles stands for Google Apps for Education for primary aged students (TK-3rd). GAfE implementation is occurring in upper grades, but is still on the rise in primary grades. If you are a primary teacher and want to start implementing introducing GAfE to your littles, you are going to want to be collaborating with other teachers who are already using GAfE or have ideas! You have your colleagues at your school site you can turn to, and probably teachers at other schools. Your professional learning network (PLN) can go beyond your district.

Refrain your laugh…..Twitter is one of the best things I have done for myself professionally. There is literally a whole other world out there of people in the education field who are collaborating, sharing ideas, and chatting about current events and new resources. On Twitter, people are sharing about GAfE 4 Littles by using the hashtag #gafe4littles in their Tweets. If you create a Twitter, you can follow people who use the hashtag to start expanding your PLN. You can even share what your students are doing on GAfE. Below, check out the live #gafe4littles stream on Twitter, and consider joining Twitter!
