When we have an app for everything, it's hard not to let the apps drive the learning in the classroom. Apps are great, especially Google tools, but not a silver bullet for the classroom. It's what the STUDENTS DO with the apps and devices that matter. This session will focus on instructional strategies that can be used with Google tools to engage students and increase student learning, AND meet the new ISTE Standards for students. Let's put the focus back on student learning!
