It’s a beautiful spring weekend here in New England! To celebrate, we have some new articles and resources for you. This week, we are continuing our All Things Google theme. Did you know that we are offering Google Chromebook & The Google Infused Classroom workshops in Berkeley, Chicago, Cambridge, & Los Angeles this summer? We also have some fantastic sessions already confirmed for the ETT Summit that address Chromebooks, collaborating with Google Apps, and even Google Glass!
