The Google Apps for Education Summit takes place this weekend, March 8-9, at Charlottesville High School.
Nearly 400 teachers from around Virginia and several other states are taking part.
The two day event holds more than 80 sessions for educators to get more information on how to use "Google Apps Education" in their classrooms.
Several of the workshops also included ways to design an effective website ways to help introduce more technology into the classrooms.
“Google has a browser that's similar to internet explorer or safari and our students can install apps directly on there to do all kinds of different things,” says Stephanie Carter, public administrator for virtual education in Charlottesville. “It's really the new version of installing software and being able to access online software and programs.”
The summit continues on Sunday. This is the second year that Charlottesville City Schools hosted the event.
