Jessie ShipmanProject 1: Google Forms
The project that I chose to do was the Google Forms project in which I was creating ﬁveaudit tools to ﬁnd out where several key groups of people stood on technology at thebeginning of the planning stages of a technology plan.

It would be a different challenge to walk into a group of naysayers,versus walking into a group of people who were highly innovative, but just lackresources. I can
