Weekly Resources for the end of July
What a week! On Monday, Samantha Morra gave a presentation at the Chromebooks and Common Core Symposium on "Extensions and Add-ons: Making Google Work for You." Greg Kulowiec led custom workshops in Lawrence and Mendon, Massachusetts plus Buffalo, New York. And, we wrapped up a great week of Summer Workshops in Cambridge with 2 new sessions from Beth Holland and Douglas Kiang as well as a returning favorite from Tom Daccord. Next week, marks the start of our inaugural EdTechTeacher Summit in Chicago while Suzy Brooks, Brenda Doucette, and Maggie Keeler wrap up our Cambridge Workshops. We still have more great learning opportunities in Austin and Los Angeles, so check out all of the Summer Agendas below and know that space is still available in many of our upcoming workshops.
