What is a Google Infusion?

Our new book, The Google Infused Classroom is only about one month away from being released. I often present on the Google Infusions at educational summits. For those people who do not attend my sessions, I am often asked “What is a Google Infusion?”

Here is the quick answer.

A Google Infusion is really simple..and meant to be applied with one goal in mind: making student thinking visible. It is achieved by combining a Google tool with another online app –  to make it easy to gather rich information about student learning and growth.

Think of it like this: A teacher might use Google Classroom to pass out a link for a Padlet. But with a Google Infusion, the goal of  the infusion is to find a way to easily make student thinking visible, hear from all students, and allow the students to share their work.

People are doing Google Infusions everyday, and we would love to hear about yours! Tweet them to us at #infusedlearning
