Mailbag from Our Listeners
Robin Limpert (https://www.robinlimpert.com/) – As a primary educator, I would love to hear more about integrating Google tools into our primary grades K-3. Most of us have iPads and using Google on iPads is a very different animal. We are starting to see Chromebooks become more primary friendly and I am excited about that but for now, do you have ideas for us using both iPads and Chromebooks?
