Tools-Tips-and-Tricks for Google-using Educators
What’s your learning objective? There’s definitely a tool to use, a technique to employ, and a fellow teacher who is ready to help you! Welcome to GEG-GG! Our group of highly energetic, engaging educators use Google-based tools to improve as professionals while accomplishing classroom goals. Most importantly, we discuss ways to make the learner have a more memorable, fun, authentic, and rigorous learning experience.
