Conferences I’ve Attended

GaETC 2019| Atlanta, GA

November 2019

During this conference, I learned how to better my tech training skills in general and in specific common educator tools, particularly G-Suite for Education. As one of the few higher-ed institutions attending, my co-worker and I got to see the fantastic direction K-12’s tech sphere is going and bring some innovative techniques back to Agnes. One tool in particular that we’ve used is GLIDE, which is a free tool that allows you to create an app using just Google Sheets.
