In this webinar, you’ll hear how St. Albans City School is empowering students by putting Google tools into their hands to improve their community. Students are engaging with the local community to improve the region’s trail systems, while reducing the unfiltered phosphates that run off the trails and negatively impact Lake Champlain. Students are directly applying principles contained in the Next-Gen science standards for schools. Tune in for the details of this learning project and how educators are transforming teaching & learning through some of these Google tools.

St. Albans City School is located in St. Albans, Vermont, a small city in northwestern Vermont, bordering New York via Lake Champlain and only 15 miles from Canada. A PreK-8 building, City School is made up of approximately 700 students and 150 staff members.

They determined that Nexus 7 tablets and Google Play for Education were the right combination of technology for them. Come hear about their success!
