Leander ISD in central Texas has a list although I don't have access to that list - since I don't work in that district.

FREE Webinar: Improving Writing and Research with G Suite

It was an honor to be a presenter this weekend for Google Education On Air, the free, online conference for educators! It was so exciting to participate in this conference as a learner and as a presenter. I was happy to see friends from Texas, across the U.S. and Canada, participate and present. If you missed out on the live conference, no worries, you can watch all of the presentation On Demand – every session was recorded!

My session, Improving Writing and Research with G Suite, is embedded in the post. I have included the recording of the live session along with my presentation and resources. Fair warning: this was a 30-minute session, so it is jam-packed and fast moving! But all of the resources and how-to’s are included in the presentation. And a special thank you to my friend, Matt Miller from Ditch That Textbook, who was my moderator.
