Sustainability Spotlight: How to Empower Students to Tackle Sustainability Issues

Sponsor: My friend Kasey Bell writes the Shake Up Learning Blog. Kasey is who I turn to when I need to train my teachers on Google Classroom and the Level 1 Google Classroom Teacher Certification Training. Right now, Kasey is offering her Google classroom master class 50% off. That’s a great deal, especially now, if you’re in the middle of distance learning or upping your Google Classroom ability. Go to googleclassroomcourse.com  and use the coupon code “homelearning” to get 50% off and take advantage of that great price and sign up for Kasey’s Google Classroom Master Class. If you need training for your entire school, like I did, check out gsuitetrainingforschools.com. Tell her Vicki Davis, the Cool Cat Teacher, sent you. Kasey rocks — and she’ll help you become a better distance learning teacher now.
