Dan prepared for his presentation to our whole school staff by encouraging us to complete an online survey in the weeks leading up to our staff development day. He arrived armed with data that drove his presentation to address the needs of our staff specifically. His approach made for a very engaging and relevant exploration into Google Suite and excellent examples of applications that made sense in our school context.“.
