Google In The Classroom: Apps, Extensions, Add Ons and Organization

This session will be a sharing of how teachers and students can add apps or extensions into their account using Chrome or connect apps to their Drive account. *HOT OFF THE PRESS: learn about Add Ons for Google Drive. Also, an overview of gClass folders will show participants an easy course management option to share and collect assignments - doing away with the clutter that often happens when students share work with you.
