EdTechTeacher Google Jamborees 2015 are a great chance to connect with innovators in education and technology through keynotes, hands on workshops, and demonstrations.

Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is a core suite of productivity applications that Google offers to schools and educational institutions for FREE. These communication and collaboration apps are some of the fastest growing tools in the educational technology.


After the keynotes, we will offer 5 different Hands-On Workshops to give you an in-depth, hands-on learning experience. These workshops will be repeated in the afternoon.
