The Following are Typical Testimonials from The 2012 Google Apps for Education California Summit 

EVERY ONE of the sessions I attended had valuable content 
with knowledgeable, enthusiastic and interesting presenters. 

Overall, it was the best 4 days of technology professional development I've ever had.  

I can't make enough great comments about this conference. 
Every session was engaging and the energy was amazing! 
Thank you for making this summit possible.

I really enjoyed the enthusiasm that all the speakers have for Google apps. 
I am super happy that all of the resources are available online because there was so much to absorb in one weekend.

Presenters had a natural flow and casual style that made the content easy and fun to learn. 

I found the sessions on "deployment of Google within your organization" helpful in meeting us where we are at right now.

Scripts and forms helped me to eliminate most of our paper forms.

Sessions were tangible with practical use... highly applicable to me.

I found the whole weekend to be inspirational,
making me think of new ways to approach my curriculum and my class. 

I will be able to share this information with my principals 
and make their lives a little easier with Google Apps.

The administration strand was useful... 
listening to current users of GAFE was great and I gained new knowledge from them.

I especially enjoyed the Make and Take sessions. The presenters were knowledgeable, patient, and organized.

What I learned at the summit gave me the boost I needed to fully implement Google Apps at our school.

I got energized and re-charged for the upcoming new year.

Best professional development of the year!

It was by far the best conference experience I have ever had. 
The EdTechTeam and presenters all did an outstanding job! Bravo!

I loved the focus and the excitement... and, of course, the dedication and passion of all involved. 

I absolutely LOVED geeking out with Google! 
I just didn't know what I didn't know! 
I truly hope I can attend again next year. 

I never met an unfriendly staff person and learned a lot of new things about Google Drive and Docs. 

Inspiring and made content feel doable! 
I will definitely be using YouTube more frequently based on the tips provided!

I felt like I was getting the technical training I needed 
as well as curricular content that is always fun to update and share! 

 Not only did it open my eyes to what could be done with scripting, but I can use it immediately. 

Presenters were on topic, informative, AND able to answer questions.

I learned something new at every session that I attended.

I had two great days of professional development! I loved the sessions I attended.

 The presenters were excellent... extremely entertaining and entirely comfortable with their material.  

I thought they were all informative and I really appreciate that we have access to all of the resources. 
That is a huge help!!

I attended other conferences this year and this, by far, wins.  
Eight of eight sessions were fantastic! 

This event restored my faith in conferences. 
Not only will I be back to this particular event when it happens again, 
I will once more start looking at other events with hope!

I left this conference inspired and eager to transition to Google Apps. 
Great job! 
What are the dates for next year's summit?

I really do hope you come back to the area.  

Thank you for providing this opportunity. Wish I could have brought more staff. It was a very worthwhile experience.

I would LOVE to share the experience with my staff.

Well done, awesome two days!

It was the best money I have spent on training in years. Thanks for putting this together. 

The summit motivated me to reengage my personal learning network, and continue learning after the event...

Please send me an invitation to the next summit!
