Like I said life has been like an up and down roller coaster. After the emotions of the weekend, I had to finish my planning for a conference and get my students ready for a student showcase. I took a group of eight students to the TiCal conference for them to showcase what they have been learning in their classrooms. It was a great day for them! People from all over the state were so impressed with what they were doing with the iPads. We were lucky enough to have Video Reality provide us a SMART Board so that students were able to show all of their work on the big screen. Students also brought their iPads with them and showed administrators, teachers, and students how to use the apps. Here is an example of some of the work they presented.

This week I have spent several days at another conference and I have learned so much! I have been reading all of the requests for coaching and have started planning my blog posts. One big request I have had is people wanting to learn more about Google. Luckily, I learned so much about this particular topic over the last few days and have lots to share. I am also going to begin studying the Google in Education site and become a certified educator and trainer. I passed my first test today and let me tell you it ain't easy! If you would like to join me on this wonderful adventure just let me know. I am going to start a bi-weekly blog post to share all that I am learning as well as host my first linky party so that others can link up their posts to share. So get your blog posts ready. Here is the schedule for our blog posts along with the topics.
How do you use Google in the classroom?
