Welcome to the Google Workshop for Educators

GWE NWISD - Welcome

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

The Activity:

Turn to the person next to you & share:

one non-tech tool...that you can't teach without.

The Rules
  • Pair up with one of your teammates, introduce yourself,and then share your example.
  • When one partner is sharing, the other can ask a question, but shouldn't "take over" the conversation. 1 minute to share.
  • Rotate until you have shared with every other person on your team.Or until we run out of time...
