In this webinar, you’ll hear directly from Dane Conrad of Hattiesburg Public Schools. Dane will tell more about the district and about how Google’s education technology helps them to meet their goal of equipping students with 21st century skills and passion for learning. The Hattiesburg Public School District serves 4,500 students in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Google Apps and Chromebooks have helped Hattiesburg to change the way teachers teach and students learn, encouraging students to take a more active, creative role in class projects. Moving paper-based processes online gives teachers more time to work one-on-one with students.

Participants will:

  • Get an overview of the Google for Education solution which includes Chromebooks, tablets with Google Play for Education, and Google Apps for Education
  • Learn how this solution can be used to improve student learning, collaboration, and engagement
  • Hear first hand experience from a district using Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks for Education to improve teaching & learning
  • Be able to pose their questions to the educators and Google
