Last year we arrived at the tipping point and now it's time to take the plunge in building and coaching your team. We experienced the 'Shirtless Dancing Guy' and just how important the first follower truly is in building the movement. Now, in 2015, we must all become those first followers and coaches for our team. Our role is guiding and encouraging our fellow educators in transitioning to best practices for implementing technology tools effectively in instructional practice. Come collaborate with other Google coaches to develop the skills and ideas needed to be an effective technology coach for the future success of all of our students.
