Google Apps for Teacher Education

Session Description

Google Apps For Teacher Education

For the past 2 years I have been using Google Apps for Education to transform my science methods class for elementary teachers into a digitally interactive environment.  My K-8 (primary and early secondary) school has also utilized Google Apps to support teacher collaboration and professional development.  In this session I will share the tools, strategies and design that I used.  Then we will engage in a discussion about the role of Google Apps in teacher education, professional development and collaboration.
