Changing Your Name on Gmail (and other Google Products)

One of the benefits of using Google is that we are able to change how our name is displayed in Gmail. That is awesome, but not so cool if you change your name to the point that you can't be found. I actually changed my name on Google so that if people type is Susie when they go to email me, they can actually find me now. When you decide to rename yourself, please make sure that people can still find you easily and that they can tell that they are emailing the correct person. We've had problems in the district with students emailing who they thought was their teacher when it's really a student that happens to have the same last night!

Here is a screencast to walk you through how to change your name.

As always, let me know what you think about this post!
