This webinar was fabulous with information that can be implemented so quickly into the classroom with students! Thank you, Susan, for such an informative and fun webinar with new technology tools to use in the classroom using Google tools that I already use with the students. I can't wait to put this into practice with the 5th graders and their state projects as well as the 6th graders and their country reports. I can also use it with 3rd and 4th grade with Indian and California reports respectively. I am so glad that I joined this webinar today and can't wait for school to start in September to use it with the students! Thank you again, Susan! Incredible tool!
