Google Fest highlights a year of tech advancement for Roseville High

Two weekends ago, Roseville High School hosted the Roseville Google Summit, an event similar to the Google Festival it hosted almost exactly a year before.
Like last year’s Festival, the Summit featured 480 educators from around the state, all of whom came to RHS to learn strategies for integrating technology into an educational setting. Like last year, sessions ranged along the spectrum of instructional technology, covering everything from tried-and-true plans for professional development to the apps students have found most useful in the classroom. Like last year, it rained.
Unlike last year, though, RHS wasn’t shocked by the “firehose” one organizer calls the Google events. It’d been a year since the Festival, and it’d been a growing year for the school. Teachers began to catch up, and technology started to appear more and more frequently in RHS’ classrooms.
