Minnesota Google Apps Summit - May 11, 2013!  

If you had a good experience today, please consider leaving feedback on my public Google Trainer Profile.  I would appreciate it.

See how you can leverage Google Maps and Earth to connect your classroom to the world. This session will highlight relevant ways, including iPad-specific applications, and the underlying philosophy of how these tools can be used in your classroom. The Earth is interdisciplinary and you should be using it!
