Teaching with Google

Teaching with a lot of tech is a huge goal I have for my Math/STEM classroom.  The importance isn't just to say I'm using technology, but to bring real 21st Century skills into the learning environment while I'm still ensuring growth in my content area by covering my state mandated standards.  It doesn't matter what your state standards are, technology in the classroom is a must.

Currently I am working on training with Google.  They have a really great program for teachers to get free professional development, and when you are done, you can be a certified Google for Education expert.  If you are on Twitter, you check out Google for Education's page and follow it.

A really cool thing I learned today:

Icognito Windows for Chrome - Who knew that you could make what you are doing private on a public computer!?  I sure did not.

Whether you consider yourself tech savvy or a beginner, these are really great tutorials to learn about Google tech in the classroom.  In addition earning professional development credit is a benefit to every teacher.
