I have recently linked into a webinar on the 'Secondary curriculum, NCEA, and e-Learning'.
The webinar discusses Google Apps for Education; the use of Google Docs and Google presentations and more
A link to the webinar recording follows (there is some software that you will have to download to listen to this, but this is an easy process)

Further discussions or Threads are also set up so that you can continue discussion/questions that have been generated from the webinar
