I just spent the day at our school district’s Google Summit. The energy was buzzing as new and veteran teachers, administrators, and district staff upped their skills with Google Certified trainers. Sitting in sessions next to my colleagues is always powerful. As we learned, we would sidebar about how this could be applied at our site and exchanged new ideas. I left the summit exhausted! Exhausted and rejuvenated at the same time. Never thought that was possible!
After the keynote and sessions on Google Forms, Google Classroom, Professional Learning Networks, and Social Media, our minds are blown and our learning has been recharged. It’s times like these that remind me how much fun it is to be a life-long learner, especially in the company of friends and colleagues. Professional Development is key and collaboration is key to successful professional developments. I am honored to be a part of Irvine Unified, where professional development is not only a top priority, it is high quality.
