GEGNJ

Another Power Hour is in the books!

In this episode, we talk to the Isaacs family and how they came to get involved in the Slides Q&A commercial, Google’s newest additions to #GAFE, and what’s the right age to roll out Gmail for a school district.

Below is the video of the show and here is the agenda which includes links to the things we discussed.

We start crowdsourcing the agenda two weeks before the show and you can join #GEGNJ here even if you aren’t from New Jersey because not everyone can be perfect. This is our last episode for the school year. The Power Hour team will see all Jersey’s finest in late August!
