Coronado Google Summit a Huge Success!

The second annual Coronado Google Summit was held on October 17-18, 2015 at Coronado High School.   The event provided two days of high-intensity learning focused on deploying, integrating, and using Google Apps for Education (and other Google tools) to promote student learning in K-12 and higher education.  Over 500 educators from across the globe, including 45 CUSD educators, participated in this two day event.  

Registration for this year’s summit was limited to 500 participants and quickly sold out.  Coronado draws folks from all over the world with its enjoyable climate, fantastic restaurants, and excellent lodgings.   Many local Coronado hotels and inns found themselves completely sold out for the weekend as they housed Google Summit attendees!  

The Google Summit organizers provided 45 free registrations to our Coronado teachers.  The Google Summit provides Coronado teachers with valuable training that can be immediately implemented in their classrooms.  

The Google Summit EdTech Team was thrilled, for the second year in a row, with the amazing CHS campus.  They have already reserved the space for the Third Annual Coronado Google Summit 2016.  Keep on the lookout for the 2016 date!
