I’ve attached a draft of my project proposal. I am actually going to use this plan, along with a letter, as a request to the administration and technology committee at my school to have the restrictions on Google Sites and Books removed from Google Apps. Luckily, I happen to be on the tech committee and think this might work. :) 
In short, my project goals are for students to become proficient in using Google Apps and create an electronic portfolio to showcase their learning. Students will share their work and ePortfolio with families, staff, and community at our Student Led Conferences.
This project will allow me to take what I already do with Google Apps and take it one step further. My classroom will become transparent by sharing our learning using our classroom website and, eventually, the student ePortfolios. My students, parents, school staff, and community will have access to our classroom activity anywhere, any time, any way. I sincerely hope (and believe) that my student ePortfolios will become the model for documentation of proficiency based learning at our school. 

A closer look at how I'll use reverse teaching and a transparent classroom can be seen here:

  1. Check out (my brothers website) if click portfolio you can get the template which he made in google docs (spreadsheet) I would recommend doing this. That way you setup 1 portfolio template the kids just click and it uploads to their google docs. They just change it to fit them (name, year, etc..) you have them share it with an overall account we use This why everyone can access it that needs to. Then just get the teachers to get the kids to paste in links to the kids works (either a google doc, presentation, spreadsheet, video, website, web album, etc...)

    Can't wait this sounds great!
