Hello and welcome to a special edition of the Google Teacher Newsletter.

Every few months, we reach out to tell you about how your fellow educators are using our products in their classrooms.  Well, this time around, we'd like to change things up and ask you and your students to take over and send us your ideas instead.   Here's what we mean: 

Picture this:  You're standing in front of your class, but instead of keeping their eyes on the blackboard, the kids are all sitting there doodling.

For once, though, they're actually working on an assignment –- namely, our Doodle 4 Google competition (www.google.com/doodle4google), which offers young artists the chance to play around with the Google logo and perhaps have their artwork seen by people all over the world.
The theme for our U.S. doodling competition is "What if...?"

    What if...I could live underwater, or in outer space, or in Colonial America?

    What if...I could see into the future?

    What if...I could build any kind of invention I wanted? 

However your students interpret our theme, we look forward to honoring their creativity. We'll display 40 finalist doodles on our site and invite the public to vote for their favorites.  The winning doodler will receive a $10,000 college scholarship and their design will take over our homepage for a day (the winning school will also receive a $25,000 technology grant).

Want to get in on the fun? You'll find everything you need. including detailed lesson plans, at www.google.com/doodle4google Registration closes on March 28th. We look forward to seeing some creative doodles.

Please be sure to pass this onto any fellow teachers who might be interested.  And please stay tuned for the next, regularly scheduled Google Teacher Newsletter, coming soon.

Cheers,
Cristin Frodella
