"Never stop learning because life never stops teaching!"

Today was a great day of learning for me and the others who attended the Midwest Summit featuring Google for Education. Tickets for the Summit sold out in four hours back in September, and it's no wonder: So many Google rock stars are sharing their amazing ideas! I'm excited to see many of my GTA MTV cohort again, and I'm so honored to be a part of this formidable group! The day started with a very engaging keynote by Mark Garrison inviting educators to think about what they will Start, Stop, and Share to promote change and innovation personally and in our schools. Today, I shared ideas for building a Personal Learning Network (PLN) -- It's a PLN! and tomorrow I will engage educators in a 2-hour workshop to build Google Sites: Google Sites Make & Take. In between presentations, I'm learning so much about Google extensions, add-ons, formulas in Sheets... If you would like to learn along with us today and tomorrow, session resources are available here and follow #mwgs on Twitter.
