GLI - TechEd Conference - Welcome


Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Getting to know each other

Not a round-the-room thing (we only have so much time today), but at least the names of folks within one or two chairs, and add something you enjoy or care about.  How will we focus this?  We'll need to be innovative, and be ready for the question - what makes technology innovative in an educational setting?

Driving Questions

1. What free and educationally beneficial services are available from Google?
2. How will you use Google services as an instructor in a community college?
3. How will your students use Google services?
