A bit of background here before I get to the main point.

My school is now switching everything over to Google Docs and Google Slides.  No more Microsoft word.  No more PowerPoint.  And no more space on the school computer for teacher's to save their materials.  Everything is now going to be online at Google Drive.

I will admit to being very frustrated with this change.  I liked PowerPoint and Microsoft Word.  I knew how to use PowerPoint and Microsoft Word.  And, it appears that there are certain features I use regularly on PowerPoint and Microsoft Word that are not supported by Google Docs and Google Slides.  (This last point is something I'm still figuring out, however.  It could be that I just haven't fully discovered how to utilize Google Docs and Google Slides.)
There's also some rumors around the staff room that the reason for the change might not be purely altruistic.  The company is apparently saving a lot of money by making this change.  (They don't have to pay licensing fees to PowerPoint and Microsoft anymore, and they don't have to host all the teacher's resources on their own computers).
So, you can imagine that there's a fair amount of grumbling around the staff room about losing Microsoft and PowerPoint.

And yet...there's a generation gap around this issue.  I've noticed that many of the younger teachers--the ones under 25--are completely unaffected by this changeover, because they were already using Google Docs and Google Slides as their primary tools, and they actually prefer it.

And, although the motivations of the company management may be mixed, there does appear to be a genuine belief on the part of the company management that Google Docs and Google Slides are the way of the future, and that the company is being progressive and forward thinking by jumping on this bandwagon sooner rather than later.

So, despite the fact that I hate change, it's looking like Google Docs and Google Slides are actually the wave of the future.
...Or are they? Given how quickly fades change on the Internet, who knows what will happen.  Will Google Docs have completely taken over everything in 5 years time, or will it be eclipsed by the next big thing?  (If anyone has any predictions, let me know in the comments section).

Anyway, all that rambling is just the background to this new blogging project I'm starting.

I've decided that since all my classroom materials are going to be online anyway, I'm going to index them all here on this blog.

For the past couple years, I've already been posting a lot of my teaching materials. But up until now, I've been trying to only post general stuff that wasn't limited to a specific textbook--for example, a generic activity on adjectives.
By far, by far, the majority of materials I make, however, is designed to just supplement a specific lesson from a specific textbook--discussion questions that are based off of a specific reading lesson from page 36 of a textbook, for example.

Going forward, I'm going to just start posting all of this stuff on this blog.  My reasons for this are as follows:

1). Since it's all going to be online now anyway, I figure why not.
2). It will allow me to index and keep track of my own material.  In some cases, it will allow me to quickly find material again when I'm re-teaching the same lessons.  In other cases, material designed for one textbook could be adapted for another textbook.
3). To the extent that all major ESL textbooks are a mass publishing industry, lots of other people around the world will also be using them.  It may be of use for other people out there in Internet land who are teaching out of the same textbooks.  (Or maybe not.  It's not for me to judge the usefulness of my own material, of course.  It could just be all bunk, but there's no harm in throwing it out there and letting other people decide for themselves.)
4). And, of course, the primary reason for any sort of blogging--the desire to have some sort of interaction with a larger world.

From now on, I'll be posting on this blog any material that I design on Google Docs or Google Slides.  Material that is generic, I'll index on my TESOL Ideas and Worksheets Index.  Material that is designed to supplement a specific lesson from a specific textbook I'll index on this post here (at the top of the post).  Material that could fit either description will be indexed in both places.
