N.Y. Google Teacher Academy

We had a fantastic time at the Google Teacher Academy in New York today! I was fortunate enough to bring three students to present, participate and generally help out.

The kids spoke to an amazing group of educators from around the world about some of the tools we use in every day. They covered the way we manage digital portfolios and one of the students shared a form they created in a Demo Slam, the Mileage Tracker Template allows teachers to track their mileage and auto calculates the distances using the Maps API.

It was a great day and don't forget, they're taking applications for the next GTA in Mountain View, California in December :)

(Go Team Swan!)


  1. Did you represent Google or just a seminar about them?

  2. The students presented to newly made Google Certified Teachers.
