The value of creativity and collaboration in the classroom is vital in preparing students for the world beyond those four walls. As educators, we need to give our students every chance to learn and showcase these skills, and creating or collaborating with Google has never been easier! In the session, we will begin looking at how to take Google Apps to the next level. We no longer just want our students typing a Google Doc or sharing a presentation in slides, they need to begin going beyond. Join us as we go farther than you’ve gone before and really dig into the creative and collaborative side of google.
