WHAT EDUCATORS ARE SAYING ABOUT Going Google...
"Google's presence in our nation's schools is a big one and is only going to increase. Jared Covili has put together an excellent guide—useful for those who are tech savvy and those who are not—for how teachers and students can use these tools for teaching and learning."
(Larry Ferlazzo, Advice Columnist - Education Week Teacher)
What educators are saying about Classroom in the Cloud...
"Covili and Provenzano have done a fantastic job of putting together this resource of cloud based tools for teaching and learning. It is a valuable asset to any new teacher, veteran teacher, administrator, or IT leader. If you want to truly take your schools and classrooms to the cloud this book will get you there!"
