The EdTechTeam South Bay Summit is SOLD OUT this month, but it doesn't mean you can't sit in on the action. Join Presenter +Michael Wacker 

 Sure there are those easy targets for awesome. Everyone knows how great +Google for Education +Google Drive ,+Gmail , Calendar, Plus, etc are. But there are  so many more hidden gems or strategies for use that need uncovering and time to explore. Let's look at a bunch of these and spend time sharing ways we are using some of these tools in EDU!

Position: Director of PD, Google Certified Teacher, Google Certified Trainer
Organization: EdTechTeam
Location: Colorado
Contact Email: michael@edtechteam.com
Website: http://www.edtechteam.com/

Bio:

A former elementary teacher, Michael has since served as an Online Learning Specialist, Online/Hybrid PD Coordinator, Blended Learning Manager,  and Curriculum Developer/Designer. With more than five years of progressively responsible experience in eLearning and Blended Learning, he is consulted around ideas of strategic design and innovation in public and private schools internationally to support the professional development and redesign of classrooms, pedagogy, and traditional instructional models, to better serve all learners.

Dedicated to educational innovation, he strives to utilize best practice eLearning techniques and leverage a pedagogy and technology that allows for anywhere, anytime learning.
