Over the past few weeks I had been working on a presentation for the Wellington Regional Primary (school) Principals Association. One of the surprising facts that came out of the preconference online survey I conducted was that 89 per cent of the principals (thus schools) used Gmail and Google Docs.

Therefore of course I had to update my skills and knowledge of these two programs.

While I’m an avid Outlook fan because of the stunning integration with the other Microsoft software – such as calendar, Excel and Word, you could have blown me away with a feather with the new Gmail features I discovered.
