To make it easier for educators to share great ideas beyond their school walls, Google today announced eight Google Apps Regional K-12 User Groups across the United States and Canada.

These groups are designed for educators to learn and collaborate through community discussion forums, shared resources, events and webinars. In addition to showcasing creative instructional uses for Google Apps, we hope these groups will help teachers and administrators to identify other schools in their region that have "gone Google."
