Control Alt Achieve: Hipster Google - 21 Google Tools You Probably Never Heard Of

These are all powerful and useful tools that are transforming teaching and learning in schools around the world.

Luckily, the team at Nearpod is consistently working to improve their product to reach learners of all ages and abilities in ways that inspire imagination and curiosity.
