Then, as a group, work through the remaining activities, focusing on those of the most interest to group members.<br /> <br /> # '''Email'''<br /> ** If you don't have web-accessible email, sign up for a Gmail account.<br /> #'''Groups'''<br /> ** Everyone should sign up for a group on Google or Yahoo groups and make a test post or two. If there is a large audience, you can form groups of two or three people. If you are forming smaller groups, make sure at least two of the group members have access to email.<br /> # '''Docs'''<br /> ## Make sure at least two members of the group have access to Google Docs.<br /> ## Have one member of the group create a document entitled &quot;E-Democracy&quot; (feel free to experiment with different document types). Once on the Google Docs page, this can be accomplished by clicking on the &quot;New&quot; button on the left side of the page and selecting the document type.<br /> ## Write something on the document (Just writing your name is fine). Experiment with different colors and fonts.<br /> ## Share the document with someone else in your group via email. Have them add something to the document from their own computer.<br /> ## Note that the document automatically saves itself, and that you can revert to previously saved versions.<br /> # '''Calendar'''<br /> ## Make sure at least two members of the group have access to Google Calendar.<br /> ## Have one group member create a Calendar entitled &quot;E-Democracy.&quot; Once on the Calendars page, this can be accomplished by clicking on &quot;Add&quot; on the left side of the screen, then selecting create new calendar. Share the calendar with a second member of the group.<br /> ## Add an event to the calendar.<br /> ## Have the second group member go to the Google Calendar page from their computer and add the shared calendar.<br /> ## Use the colored triangle next to the calendar name in the blue box on the left side of the screen to explore calendar settings<br /> # '''Map'''<br /> ## Go to the Google Maps page. Note that you do not have to be logged in to view and search.<br /> ## Have one member of the group search for their address.<br /> ## Now type &quot;Rondo Community Outreach Library&quot; into the search box. Click on the correct search result.<br /> ## A balloon should pop up. Click on &quot;Street View&quot; ''on the balloon.''<br /> ## After exploring Street View, close the balloon, then click on the &quot;Street View&quot; button to turn off Street View mode.<br /> ## Explore the other buttons (&quot;Terrain,&quot; &quot;Satellite,&quot; &quot;Map,&quot; &quot;Traffic&quot;).<br /> ## Zoom in on Rondo Library, then click and drag on the map (not on an icon) to move around.<br /> ## Have one member of your group go to &quot;My Maps&quot; and create a new map.<br /> ## Play with the &quot;Placemark,&quot; &quot;Line&quot; and &quot;Shape&quot; buttons.<br /> ## Use the &quot;Collaborate&quot; function to share the map with a second group member.<br /> ## Have the second group member log in and edit the map.<br /> ## If there is a third member, use the &quot;Link to this page&quot; function to allow them to view the map without being able to edit it. Note the &quot;embed&quot; code provided with the link, which can be used to embed a map in an HTML-based webpage.<br /> <br /> =Tools=<br /> ==Email==<br /> ===[http://mail.google.com/mail?hl=en&amp;utm_source=en-et-more&amp;utm_medium=et&amp;utm_campaign=en Gmail]===<br /> ==Groups==<br /> ===[http://groups.google.com/ Google Groups]===<br /> ===[http://groups.yahoo.com/ Yahoo Groups]===<br /> ==IM/Chat==<br /> ===[http://www.aim.com AIM]===<br /> ===[http://www.yahoo.com Yahoo Messenger]===<br /> ===[http://www.google.com/talk/ Google Talk]===<br /> ===[http://www.skype.com Skype]===<br /> ===Windows Messenger===<br /> ===[http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/ichat.html iChat]===<br /> ===[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Relay_Chat irc]===<br /> <br /> ==Productivity==<br /> ===[http://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=writely&amp;hl=en&amp;passive=true&amp;continue=http%3A%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2F&amp;ltmpl=WR_tmp_2_lfty&amp;nui=1&amp;utm_campaign=en&amp;utm_source=en-et-more&amp;utm_medium=more Docs]===<br /> ===[http://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en/index.html Apps]===<br /> ==[http://pages.e-democracy.org/Social_Networking Social Networking]==<br /> ===[http://www.facebook.com Facebook]===<br /> ===[http://www.Ning.com Ning]===<br /> * [http://www.studentsspeakout.org/ Students Speak Out]<br /> <br /> ==Calendar==<br /> ===[http://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=cl&amp;passive=true&amp;nui=1&amp;continue=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fcalendar%2Frender%3Fhl%3Den&amp;hl=en&amp;utm_source=en-more&amp;utm_medium=more&amp;utm_campaign=en Calendar]===<br /> <br /> ==Mapping==<br /> ===[http://maps.google.com/ Maps]===</div> Jonathan
