We all know that Google offers a myriad of tools that can be useful in the classroom, but do you know just how many there really are and what they can do? The The Teacher's Google Toolkit Infographic presents the Google tools that every teacher should try out. Some are very well known, others less so, but there are great ways to use all of them in the classroom!
