Create a Yearbook Using G Suite by @Jentechnology - Teacher Tech | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Google Yearbook, also known as Anuario Google, is my #Mex16 Innovator project. The goal of this project to lower the price of yearbooks while maintaining a high-quality product. Students are empowered to become graphic designers as they collaboratively create their yearbook. Because the project is bilingual, even more students can benefit from the project.

Make Your Own Google Yearbook

You can get started by going to my website with details about the project. Throughout the year, directions, resources, templates, and solutions will be added. Please take what you like and share the changes you make. Our students deserve high-quality low-cost yearbooks that capture their youthful memories.

12 Steps to Creating a Comprehensive Approach to #EdTech Integration - Consideration 6

12 Steps to Creating a Comprehensive Approach to #EdTech Integration - Consideration 6 | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"Effective technology integration doesn’t happen organically. It takes intentional planning. There are twelve steps schools can take to get the ball rolling. It starts by looking at the district’s overall approach and seeing how your school can build upon what is in place and customize to the needs of your community.

In New York City we have a “Strategic Technology Plan” which is designed to help readers:


Understand connections between technology and the strategic goals of the NYCDOE
Discover opportunities for expanded technology programming and investment


Learn about the priorities for the next five years.


The plan addresses three areas:
Integrate Tech Into Instruction
Invest in Infrastructure and Devices
Focus on the User"
