Visiting Google

November 9, 2008

Last Friday, Technology Director Ken Lupo and I had the opportunity to visit Google in downtown Ann Arbor.  We were invited to have lunch and share how Saline Area Schools is using Google Apps.  We had a nice discussion about our use of Gmail for all staff, Google Sites for several school groups, and Google Docs for a growing number of staff and student projects.

Google has targeted Higher Education with software applications and now are considering options for the K-12 market.

Following our lunch and conversation, Mr. Lupo and I received a tour of the offices.  I had heard about the environment and the style of the office space.  Well, I was not disappointed.  They have a unique set up that includes a room with an air hockey table and a pool table – along with all manner of video conferencing equipment and other mobile technologies.

I took the picture below of Michael from Google and Mr. Lupo in front of the air hockey table.  ( No, we didn’t play – I had to get back to Saline for a meeting)
