For the past few summers a group of Google Apps for Education specialists, lead by Google Certified Teacher, Lucie deLaBruere, have offered Google Tools for Schools to educators in the NorthWest region of Vermont. This summer we have expanded the offering to Central Vermont and will hold a Google Tools for Schools Summer Institute in Berlin, Williston, and St. Albans. We will also be hosting an online session for those who prefer virtual learning opportunities. Google Experts - Elizabeth McCarthy, David Davidson, Lisa Barry, Bonnie Birdsall, Matt Allen, and Tony Galle will be teaming up with Lucie deLaBruere to deliver a unique model of professional development using Google Tools for Schools. We will simultaneously run classes at three locations across the state and online, providing an expanded PD opportunity that taps into the expertise of various educators with Google Tools Expertise.
