Weekly Resources for Mid July
It was another big week of Summer Workshops! We had our first West Coast workshops in Berkeley with Holly Clark and Douglas Kiang as well as four in Cambridge with Tom Daccord, Justin Reich, Greg Kuloweic, and Patrick Larkin. Check out all of the Summer Agendas below and know that space is still available in many of our upcoming workshops. Beth Holland kicked off another a new full-year program in Arlington, MA, and Samantha Morra presented at the first annual Tri-State Reboot, a Google focused conference in Morris County, NJ. Check out her presentation on Mapping Data using Fusion Tables. We are also getting ready for our EdTechTeacher Summit at the end of the month. This promises to be an incredible event focused on the future of learning. We hope that you will come join us in Chicago!
