In this session, you'll learn how to use a little Google Sheets magic, the power of formMule and Google Forms to make feedback faster and life a little easier!

Good for Admins to automate responses, help requests etc.

Turning Professional Development on It's Ear
Schools spend an estimated $18 billion/year on professional development, most of which goes in one ear, rattles around a bit, and exits the other ear. Come and learn how one school district is changing the way facilitators deliver PD and how teachers internalize and personalize their own learning. Take the journey beyond Sit and Get and bring back techniques you can implement easily and effectively.

Good session for Admins who can lead and influence in this area.
