Google Apps is flourishing in the education world.  It has come a long way since Esther Wojcicki and a small group of dedicated educators brought the tools together for schools in 2006. Today millions of students worldwide are using what has now become Google Apps for Education. Recently, Google Apps use in schools has exploded because school leaders recognize the transformative power of cloud-based work and sharing. An entire ecosystem is evolving around Google Apps for Education. Tools like Hapara’s Teacher Dashboard and the newly education focused Google Play are making it possible for educators to do things that simply were not possible before.  In this presentation, Esther will share her experience of convincing Google to provide Apps for education for free to schools around the world, and how she uses Google Apps to TRICK her students. TRICK is Esther’s acronym for trust, respect, independence, collaboration and kindness.
