The all-day symposium is designed to showcase technology use and demonstrate innovative ways districts can use Google apps for education to promote student learning and collaboration. This opportunity has been hosted by Google both nationally and internationally over the last two years.

Chosen for their innovative approach to educational technology practices which integrate digital tools into the classrooms, Spartanburg School District One will highlight classrooms where state leaders of education will witness technology integration first hand, and will also have the opportunity to network with other districts from around the state.
