With access to technology comes the ability to reach every child at their own level. We teach students, not subjects, so how can we be more effective in reaching them all?
The Google Apps For Education suite has powerful tools that truly help you differentiate your teaching so that you can help improve your students’ learning, engagement and reflection. In this webinar, Tanya Avrith, Technology and Innovation Specialist and Kim Meldrum, Google Education Trainer and Consultant presented information to help K-12 educators learn different strategies with a focus on student engagement, literacy, creation, editing, and organization.
