Welcome to Classroom featuring the Paperless Research Process (with Feedback)
Session Link

This session is for those who are relatively new to Classroom who will begin by joining a classroom and completing an assignment in Google Docs using the Explore Tool, Outline Tool, Easy Bib Add On and/or Voice Typing.  During this time I will demonstrate the feedback, turning in and grading process.  (30 Min)

Transition ~ 

The second part of the lesson will involve 'creating' your own classroom and personalizing, inviting students and drafting your course/assignments. Time for exploration and individual Q & A.

You won't get an overview of all the bells and whistles of Google Classroom. You WILL get enough to get started and work your way forward with it with your own students.

Paper Be Gone, The Digital Classroom
Paperless is increasingly becoming the norm in the everyday lives of adults, yet our classrooms often do not reflect or prepare students for that reality. During this session, strategies will be discussed to help teachers and students transition to a more paperless environment. While many teacher best practices can be enhanced by going digital, consideration will be given to the fact that going paperless is not an educational outcome, and that there still a time and place for paper and pencil. 

Key skills/concepts covered will include: 
  • What's the why? Why paperless?
  • Getting the most of your learning management system and the Google Suite for digital organization and workflow
  • File sorting and naming conventions
  • How to ditch the worksheet and facilitate authentic learning experiences with high cognitive demand
  • Facilitating feedback loops digitally

Leveraging Google Drive and Forms to Rock Your TPEP Evaluation
More and more accountability is being demanded of teachers all across the nation. Sometimes teachers feel like they have to spend more time proving they are doing their job than actually getting to do it! By leveraging Google Drive and Google Forms to aid in the documentation of the amazing work they do, teachers can get back to focusing on doing what they do best: teaching!

Here in Washington State, we use the Teacher/Principal Evaluation Program (TPEP). By creating folders in Google Drive that are aligned with TPEP criteria, and by creating aligned student surveys with Google Forms, teachers can gather and organize TPEP artifacts and get meaningful feedback from students. This feedback can lead to self-reflection that can transform practice!

Goals of this session: 
  • Educators will gain access to download a number of free resources, including TPEP-aligned Google Drive folders and resources and TPEP-aligned Google Form student surveys written in student-friendly language.
  • Educators will become more proficient and fluent in their use of Google Drive and Google Forms features.
  • Educators will be able to leverage Google Drive and Forms to aid in TPEP artifact collection.

Google for School Leaders
  • What does it mean to be a Google school?
    • We start from the basics and take a high level look at what it means to be a Google school
    • We explain how Google Apps for Education works, what Apps are included in the ‘core suite’ and what other ‘non core’ Google Apps you can use
    • We cover a lot of basic stuff to be sure all attendees are starting from the same level such as: Do you need a Google Server? Can you use Google in your school if you are running on a MS base? Do all students need an account on your domain? Can one teacher run Google Classroom if we are not a Google School? etc. etc.
  • How can Google help me and our leadership team in our jobs?
    • This is where we get into Forms, shared Docs, research, etc. We focus in on the best practices for using Google Drive and Docs specifically for school management with specific examples of using forms, spreadsheets and more
    • We also look at using Google tools for:
      • Leadership teams
      • Accreditation (for example by CIS WASC and NEASC which is something schools go through every 5 and 10 years and with Google Apps this process has become much more efficient and effective)
      • Work flows, meeting minutes
      • Structure and Google Drive folder expectations and protocols

As a result of this growing trend, there has been a big push in both the public and private sectors to "gamify" learning experiences. Such efforts have yielded varying results. By better understanding what motivates gamers, we as educators can do a lot to keep our students more engaged with our classes. Which of the fourteen things teachers need to learn from gamers resonated most for you? What gamification strategies have worked for you? What hasn't worked? What would you like to try to implement this upcoming school year?

Expand G Suite Functionality and Use with Add Ons to Documents, Slides, Sheets & Forms
Session Link

Google knows you may need to expand beyond the base set of functionality in the core applications of Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms.  To address those needs, they support add-ons.  Add-ons are additional applications you can add to each to further extend the functionality of each tool.

In this session we will go over how and why you may want to use add-ons.  I will share some of my favorite add-ons, and then provide you time to go explore and find add-ons for your needs.  Of course we will give time to install and kick the tires on those you find!  You will leave with your core applications super charged with more functionality!

Leverage Learning and Efficiency with the Explore Tool in G Suite
Session Link

Need to quickly add functionality to Docs, Sheets, and Slides? If you said yes, then you need to use the Explore Tool. This built in tool allows you to quickly insert images, add citations, analyze data, and format your Slides all within the original application.

In this session, we will discuss how the Explore tool actually works (hint: artificial intelligence, learning from you just like your Alexa, Google Home, Siri, or other assistant). I will share some sample documents to allow your to explore (see what I did there!) the Explore tool or you can use a real document of yours. We will talk about the benefits of using the Explore tool with students as well.

Come learn more during this session!

Manipulate and Analyze Data by Learning to LOVE Sheets (CS)
According to the Economist, 'The world's most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data'.    

Data is often collected into a spreadsheet (you've seen the student data, the test scores, etc in sheets) and you need to be able to leverage that 'valuable resource' to work for you and help you teach others.   These skills also align with the K-12 Computer Science Standards.  


Hands on sheet is provided with data so you can practice as you learn. * We will cover things like:
  • Expand & Move Columns
  • Select All 
  • Freeze Row 
  • Sort
  • Checkboxes
  • Wrapping Text
  • Filter
  • Split & Concatenate
  • Conditional Formatting
  • Explore Tool
  • Graphs
  • Auto Average & Sum
*Disclosure:  Beginners should be able to locate sheets and access the tools on the menu.  In this one hour we will complete a variety of hands-on activities using a template with preloaded content.  If you are very new to G Suite you might need to practice again later as it will be run a quicker pace than a typical 'beginner session,'  if you are very advanced you might already be familiar with most of things techniques but you can use this for your own training at a later date.  Something for everyone.

Telling Stories with Google Earth
Since its launch over a decade ago, Google Earth has captured the imagination of millions as the explore and view our world in a way most had never done before. For many this was a fun way to view their house or city, but for the education it opened a doorway to (literally) a world of possibilities for exploration and storytelling, not just as part of Geography classes, but across the curriculum because historic battles, literature, natural geometry, architecture, different cultures and more all ultimately has a “location” in the World. Learn how those locations can be turned into stories.

Making Gmail Manageable with Magic (& Unpack NEW Gmail)
Email is becoming increasingly unmanageable! 

There are many 'magical tricks' waiting for you to apply to gMail to make it more manageable and ensure you don't miss those important messages.  
  • Inbox Types ~ there are two inbox types I recommend.  I'll show you them and tell you when each one fits best.  
  • Themes ~ Changing your theme now and then can lift your spirits.
  • Labels ~ if you like to organize your mail you can create labels.  
  • Filters
    • Apply Label on specific incoming mail ~ I've got a green label called 'Paycheck & I've got a blue one called 'Mom' so all the messages from my mom are 'blue' and always collected in one 'folder.'    Once you know how to do this it can really help you identify important messages in your inbox and it is automatically done for you if you set up a FILTER.
    • Customized Inboxes ~ automatically apply a label and 'archive' to create custom/priority inboxes for mail such as 'payroll stubs', the tech updates; the school discussion forum, etc'
    • Automatically 'delete' unwanted incoming mail - if you have thousands of unread messages and you want to get rid of all of the 'newsletters, promotions' etc all at once from a particular sender you can search and delete.  However, you can run a filter to detect those incoming and auto-delete them and also delete all matching messages at the same time.   This can clean your inbox so fast!
Great for beginners, those never properly introduced to Gmail and anyone who desires 'inbox zero.'

Sites for Projects & Portfolios ~ Your STUDENTS Build Sites as an alternative to presentations
Session Link

Google Sites can do so much more than just be your class website.  Come see how you can use it as an alternative tool for individual and group projects.  You nor your students will need extensive programming skills--the new Sites will allow you to use it quickly and add content rich resources into your Site.  We will review some aspects that allow you to use already created Google tools, and some specific parts of Sites that lend itself to this.  We will finish off by brainstorming to come up with some solid ways to use Sites as a platform to meet curricular needs.

In the second part of the session, we will also look at how a major school system decided to use Google Sites for all of their 160,000+ students for digital portfolios.  I will share some best practices and lessons learned on this, how we prepared the teachers, how the community has supported us, and how, even in once classroom, you can get it started as well.
