Ben, Sean and I had a great day with the teachers in Cashton, WI as we shared about Google Apps for Education and the amazing uses for administrators, teachers and students. We all were energized to work with an entire district of teachers who all had the opportunity to engage in the same learning. Using Google Apps for Education this small community of just 1,000 people will be able to communicate, collaborate and share with people outside their classroom and community walls.
Superintended Brad Saron commented that the teachers attitude and posture towards Google Apps went "From leaning back to leaning forward" by the end of the workshop. People left energized, excited and full of ideas.
You can read more about his thoughts on the workshop and application of the tools at these two blog posts.
