Tracee Orman's curator insight, October 25, 2015 11:00 AM

We recently switched from laptops to iPads. The transition has been a little rocky, with Google Apps for Education (GAFE) working for about half our students at the beginning of the year. It's getting better, but many of the students still struggle with the transition. Do you use GAFE? Have you had problems? What kind of technology do you prefer to use in the classroom? What are your favorite apps? Please share!
