"The goal of this session is to improve communication, collaboration, and quality of feedback." -Art SchultzThis blog post showcases the presentation I created and used for the "Google Documents For Your Classroom" training session at my school. It also contains a cheat sheet of different Google document features, and an example of what a document would look like if some of the features were used. I want to thank the KIS EdTech Team for helping me create this presentation, as well as giving me valuable feedback.

I used Photo Sphere on my Nexus 7 to create a 360 panorama of my computer lab. With this Android app, I took pictures of my whole computer lab, guided by a blue dot in the center of the screen.
After creating my photo sphere, I shared it with Google Maps and waited until it was approved to be public by the online mapping service.
So here is the final product! You can also check it out on my official website.

"Some people believe that intellectual ability is purely genetic or fixed.
This is a myth. Research now shows that your brain is like a muscle; the more you apply it and struggle, the more it grows. People who learn to recognize this fact about their own brain develop a ‘growth mindset’ and are able to persevere and achieve more."
