I am a witness as to how vibrant the Google communities in Cebu are, namely, the Google Business Group Cebu and the Google Developers' Group ably led by my blogger colleagues like +Fleire Castro, +Ruben Licera, Jr., +Johnn Mendoza, +Bjornson Bernales and +Herbert Kikoy, among many other active volunteers. Google apps and other tools are very much underutilized by some teachers and even my medical students, some of which have no clue about what Google apps can do for helping them teach or study beyond email and search. Sadly, some school administrators are even concerned that Google might take away the students' attention from their lessons.
I attended the November 30 session and it was nice to see teachers who do not belong to the Millenial generation who are interested in learning more about Google's use for education. You can feel the enthusiasm of the teachers who were around this time as learners.

Thanks to +Aileen Apolo and Google for bringing the workshop here in Cebu. I'm sure the +GEG Philippines will likewise be an active and enthusiastic community. Cebu Champion teachers, let's volt in!
So, when will GEG Cebu start? Can't wait.
