"Graham and Borgen have hit the nail on the head! They have compiled extensive resources to provide the teachers with a one-stop location to move technology integration forward in a school or district.

"Given the fact that Google now dominates the edtech market, mastering the tools in the G Suite for Education is no longer a luxury but rather a necessity for 21st-century educators. Providing teachers with the knowledge they need to do so, however, can be a challenge. That is unless one has readily available a handy, detailed, and easy-to-read guide to everything Google. Just such a resource has been produced by Borgen and Graham. The authors have written a comprehensive instructional work the covers the full range of Google tools -- from Gmail to Google Drive and beyond -- and does so in a format and style that makes their slim volume eminently accessible to its target audience . . . teachers. Yet Google Tools Meets Middle School offers so much more. Pedagogy, lesson ideas, and helpful tech tips round out a book that will surely be a must read for any forward-thinking educator."
