The personal learning network for educators

I'm doing a workshop for teachers on Google Docs. Can anyone point me in the direction of good websites or presentations? Teachers would be using it with their students and with other teachers to collaborate. Unfortunately, I've been using it more just for storage and not as much for collaborating.I can find lots of applications for our English teachers to use it, but not so much for other areas.

Thanks!

Hi Sherri,
I don't have any additional links to add but I recently used the Google docs presentation app to collaborate with two other teachers on a presentation for NSTA. We all had hectic schedules and this allowed us to all work on the same presentation on our time. Just one more excellent application of google docs.
