Take a page from Tullahoma City Schools' digital textbooks - all created with #GAFE

Tullahoma City Schools created their own open-source, digital textbooks with +Google Docs. Since then, they've seen an increase in student engagement and excitement among the educators to keep content updated with the most current events, educational +YouTube videos and more.
