Inspiring ignite session by @JCasaTodd speaking about making in a connected world.

-Luana Marinelli, MakerED Toronto attendee

@JCasaTodd’s session “Social LEADia” has inspired me to completely redefine how I address dig cit and social media with students. #ISTE17

Thanks @JCasaTodd for the learning and inspiration. Can’t wait to make some changes with my accounts and [students].

-Melissa Romero, ISTE17 attendee

Jennifer Casa-Todd was inspiring and her demonstration of Google Hangout on Air showed us how seamless it can be.

-Ontario Summit attendee, April 2016

Connecting Students to the World presenter knew her subject matter, slides were excellent, presentation was well-paced, not hurried, very clear and deliberate.

-Ontario Summit attendee, April 2016

I found Jennifer Casa-Todd to be an engaging speaker who engaged the groups. She had solid content knowledge and adapted her presentation to the needs of the group. I felt she addressed my needs because I am a consultant with the board who is trying to promote cross-curricular connections and to encourage people to try something small with google as a first step.

-Ontario Summit attendee, April 2016

[The] presentation was excellent and relevant for our families …thank you so much for allowing parents the opportunity to network with you via the twitter feed.  The fact that you continue to support families on your own time really highlights your care and passion.  Thank you!
