A slideshow of your notes from roundtable discussions

Edcamp Roundtable Notes


Google Docs

Google docs was seen as a tool with great possibility in the classroom. We discussed how the auto-save feature is something that will be beneficial to the students. Teachers were excited for the editing capabilities and I think the classroom and personal use.
