The 2nd annual Ohio Goes Google Conference will be held at the Columbus Convention Center on May 10, 2012.  This statewide event will focus on how Google Apps for Education can be used by Ohio educators to improve the operation of their schools, save money and improve the learning of their students. Presenters will include Ohio tech coordinators, teachers, and Google Certified Trainers, as well as members of Google's Apps for Education team!
