Screen shot 2014-02-27 at 11.22.44 AMIn the Emerging Tech community’s webinar this month, presenter, Michelle Luhtala, educated participants on the benefits of using Google Applications in the classroom.  Schools across the country pledge to teach 21st century skills, but building a culture of collaborators can prove difficult. Luckily, Google Apps for education provides tools to transform an insular learning community into a collaborative one. In this session, the presenter introduced Google applications that empower teachers and students to learn together outside of the boundaries imposed by geography and time.  Some of the Google Apps covered included Drive, Calendar, Forms, and Chrome, among others.  Webinar attendees left the session with the tools and information to organize their classrooms and improve student collaboration using the latest in Google technology.
