Celebrating teachers who make a difference with Google
Celebrating teachers who make a difference with Google
For most of us, theres at least one teacher whose name we will never forgetthat favorite teacher who made a difference in our education, whether they were our first grade art teacher or a professor in college. For me, that teacher was Ms. Taylor, my 8th grade science teacher. Ms. Taylor didn't just foster my love of scienceshe understood that 8th grade can be a tough time for students as they try to navigate social cliques and prepare for the pressure of high school. Ms. Taylor knew that taking the time to ask us if we were feeling okay was just as important as teaching us about geological formations. She didnt just care about teaching usshe genuinely cared about us as people.

This Friday is World Teachers' Day, and we want to ho**r the teachers like Ms. Taylor who helped make us the people we are today. Weve long supported education through tech**logy, offering free tools like YouTube Edu and Google Apps for Education, and by developing cost-efficient devices like Chromebooks. But its the teachers who really make the difference by creatively incorporating that tech**logy into their classrooms. As tech**logy usage in schools increases, we hear even more amazing stories about how teachers and students are using our products to foster collaborative learning.

And that usage is growing quickly. As of today, more than 20 million students, faculty and staff worldwide use Google Apps for Education. In addition, in the last year we an**unced that:
  • 400+ universities are posting lectures and/or full courses online using YouTube Edu
  • 600,000 staff from the Philippines Department of Education will **w be using Google Apps
  • Universities across the continents are signing up for Apps, including schools in Poland, Spain, the Netherlands and Africa
  • More than 500 schools and districts went back to school with Chromebooks this fall
  • Seven of the eight Ivy League universities and 72 of this years top 100 U.S. universities (as determined by 2013 U.S. News and World Reports ranking) have gone Google with Google Apps for Education
As a tribute to the educators who are putting these tools to work, this week well be highlighting a few amazing teachers on our Google in Education page on Google+. To kick off the ******, we want to celebrate Ms. Kor**wskia science teacher at Kettle-Moraine High School in Wales, WI, who is using Google Forms to bring her students together.

To all the Ms. Taylors and Ms. Kor**wskis out therethank you, both for the positive impact you have on your students and for letting Google be a part of that experience.
