This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
For the past 2 years I have been using Google Apps for Education to transform my science methods class for elementary teachers into a digitally interactive environment. My K-8 (primary and early secondary) school has also utilized Google Apps to support teacher collaboration and professional development. In this session I will share the tools, strategies and design that I used. Then we will engage in a discussion about the role of Google Apps in teacher education, professional development and collaboration.
