EdTech Blog

The OSD EdTech Team strives to bring you the most up to date information about the tools available to us. We also strive to share new tools as we learn of a tool's educational value. In that endeavor, we present our EdTech Blog. Here you will find resources, updates, and information that you may find relevant in your classroom.

Recently, the OSD EdTech team had the privilege of presenting at this year's local EdTech Conference called the Utah Coalition of Educational Technology conference or more commonly known as the UCET conference. Our team, along with several other Google Certified Trainers in the state competed in a friendly competition where we all created a video that highlighted or demonstrated a Google related tip, trick, or tool.

During the presentation, each video was shared and then the audience chose their two favorite "SLAMS." The votes were tallied and our very own Du Bui, 7-12 Digital Learning Specialist, was the Demo SLAM champion. To view the videos from all the Trainers, click the link below!
