A recap on the amazing 2013 Google Summit
The first very successful Google Summit in South Africa was held in September last year. “Wow” and “Awesome” were the most commonly used expressions at the Summit and teachers were overwhelmed with the presentations given by the Google Ed Tech Team and other selected presenters. If you would like to read more about the summit we have two blogposts on our SchoolNet blog.
