EdTech Team Google Summit 2016

For two days in the holidays I had the privilege of attending the EdTechTeam's Google Summit here in Christchurch.  Right from the first keynote speaker, my learning and excitement for what Google can offer our learners grew and grew.  

Each day we selected different workshops to attend and the learning was immense in each session I attended.  I couldn't help feeling that I was learning so many great things but also that I still have so much to learn and discover.

This was the best professional development I have done for quite some time and for future summits I will be securing my spot as soon as tickets go on sale and I will also be taking as many people from our team along too.

This summit has increased my level of motivation, excitement and passion for learning in the now and the future.  
This is one of the cool features I discovered (and might be overusing right now...).


  1. In speaking to you following this Lee-Anne, it is great to see the enthusiasm you have towards technology. The challenge now will be working out what to do, when and what approach to take. Some times the danger is that there are so many things we are shown that we don't know where to start or we try and juggle too many things at once. I see you have also signed up to complete your official Google certified teacher accreditation. Tino pai!!!

  2. YAY! I cannot wait to be there with you!
