Why Google Apps for Education? Why GTA?

Last week I passed along the announcement that there will be a Google Teacher Academy for Administrators in March. If you're an administrator whose district is using Google Apps for Education or is considering Google Apps for Education, I encourage you to read more about GTA and consider applying for it. Before you apply, you may want to read this post by David Jakes and Kevin Jarrett's response to David. Both David and Kevin make good points that you should consider before deciding if GTA for Administrators is for you. (Just to be clear about my bias, I recently attended the Google Teacher Academy in Washington, DC).

If you're wondering about the benefits of Google Apps for Education, watch the following ten minute video overview.
