GDayX Mindanao gives birth to Google Educators Group GenSan

I WAS lucky to have been invited to speak at the GDayX Mindanao held last Saturday, November 16, 2013 at SM Trade Hall, SM City General Santos. On that same day, Head of Google Outreach South East Asia announced that I was to become the first Google Educators Group leader in Mindanao.

Google Educators Group (GEG) is a new program under Google Outreach. The GEG is a community of K to 12 teachers who are passionate about using Google technology in the classroom.

Some of the Google products that can be useful in the classroom include, but not limited to, Google Search, Google Drive, Google Maps, Google Calendar, Google Plus, Google Hangouts, Blogger, and YouTube.

In my talk, I shared how I use some of these technologies in the delivery of my lesson. I’d also like to share with you my presentation entitled, Google in Education: Prelude to a Paperless Classroom:
