It's the same thing for students and their tech devices. Give them plenty of time to explore and play at the beginning and then share with each other. You'll be glad that you did because then they will be much better users.
BUT, I knew my students were not going to be ready. My students didn't have the knowledge of the Chromebook and applications like I did, so before having them use the Google Apps for Education tools and use them effectively, I had to teach and introduce them SLOWLY!
It was then later in the week or even the next week that I would then use the application, program or skill that I introduced.
Well, there it is. A little snippet from my experience so far. I hope to continue to provide more as the year goes on.
