High-Tech Classroom: Students Have Fun Testing Google Expeditions

By Gabrielle Hedlund in · Podcast · January 7, 2016

In this episode of Teach for 2020, I am back with Keri Reno, Katie Kortuem, as well as school principal Jillayne Antoon to talk about their Google Expeditions day! Here’s a little background: Keri is the technology specialist and Katie is a second grade teacher at a school outside of Sacramento, CA. Keri was coordinating a Google Expedition Day for about 1,000 students from K2 through K8. There are lots of moving parts in any special project, and one at this scale is not small undertaking. I’ve been waiting to hear how it went, so let’s get to it! If you missed the previous show about the planning, be sure to listen.

Teach for 2020 is a podcast where teachers have conversations about the tools they use in the process of great teaching. Each episode the host, a middle school teacher, talks to a different educator about the role of technology in their classroom, and how it enhances the learning process. These educators will come from a variety of cities and school districts, and each will have something unique to share.

If you have suggestions for future shows or would have a great story to tell, get in touch.
