"Welcome to the official guide to technology and learning by Edudemic! This part of Edudemic is meant to offer you, the teacher, some of the best and most popular resources available today. We’ve combed through hundreds of resources in order to narrow down our guides into something easy to read, easy to use, and easy to share.
Below are links to the guides we have made so far. They’re always a work in progress so be sure to let us know if we missed something or if you have more resources you want us to call out in the guides. We’re always looking for the best and most useful resources so don’t be shy, share!"
"Both US History and APUSH are challenging courses that encourage students to achieve their very best. While Modern World History is a new class this year, I am confident that it too will bring out the best in each student. I hope that throughout the school year we can learn and grow together while we progress through historical events and learn from the actions of past societies.
I know that each student will have unique perspectives and incites to add to our classroom atmosphere, and I look forward to getting to know each one of you as we study history from an international perspective.
All MWH, USH and APUSH students are encouraged to take part in creating a learning community through the use of class google sites. These sites will be used for discussions, review, and collaborative work. Specific directions will be given in class, but come to MWH/USH/APUSH prepared to learn, grow and serve."

"Dispelling the FUD and Myths around Google Apps for Education
The purpose of this session is to dispel some of the common concerns around Google Apps for Education by illustrating how most concerns are actually misunderstandings about the legal agreement between schools and Google. Many of these center around laws like CIPA, COPPA, FERPA, and HIPPA while others are concerns about security, accessibility, ownership, ads, and costs. As a Google Certified Apps Trainer and the CTO of one of the first K-12 schools to "Go Google" I will raise each of the most common concerns discussed around the platform and provide evidence to ease concerns and point to supporting information around the issues. We will also delve into some of the more reasonable valid concerns such as total cost of ownership, bandwidth usage, and the rate of upgrades. Target Audience: Decision makers that are deciding to go Google, or those that need to defend the decision."
