This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
Google has a plethora of ways to extend your learning and love for collaborative education with Google tools, and this session will highlight ways to stay connected and learn more. We'll go in depth into Google in Education's resources on their website, including their Calendar of events and Webinars to learn more; explore the bi-annual Google Teacher Academy and the application process; jump into the Google Apps EDU Certified Training Program, and finally learn how to keep your personal learning network in check with Google by following on Twitter, Google +, and joining regional groups and discussion boards!
