The Google Apps Guidebook

The Google Apps Guidebook is now available
for purchase in paperback or e-book versions!

The Google Apps Guidebook is a set of student created lessons, activities and projects for educators to use in their classrooms. Each lesson connects with a component from the Google Apps for Education suite of tools. Each chapter introduces an engaging project that applies numerous aspects of each tool. Projects are differentiated for a variety of age ranges and can be adapted for most content areas. Upon completion, students will have a thorough understanding of the tools included with their Google account and a collection of cool projects they created!

All profits are used for students to provide support to more educators.

The Tech Sherpa Show: Episode #69 Dallastown Student Summit

In 2012 I was invited to present at the Google Teacher Academy in Google’s New York City office. Now known as the Google Certified Innovator Academy, this is a professional development opportunity for educators from around the world. At the event, educators receive learning from teachers and Googler's. I was thrilled to be involved and wanted to share the experience with my students. I asked the Google in Education team if I could bring them to present with me and they enthusiastically agreed.

Since that time, my long term goal has always been to work with students, teaching and providing experiences for them to give back to the educational community. We called these students Tech Sherpas. A helpful guide for anyone who needs it. During the years my students and I have produced a live technology support show and presented at hundreds of conferences. That work has culminated into a book that will be published soon.

The Google Apps Guidebook

The lessons and activities found in this book are designed for educators to teach students about Google Apps for Education. Ultimately, these students will go on to teach others, learning throughout the process. This dream came to fruition at the EdTechTeam Student Summit in Dallastown Intermediary School.
While no one knows what will come next, we do know that whatever happens, these students are prepared for anything.
