Pre-summit Course: Google Apps EDU Certification Preparation
At this summit we are delighted to be running the Google Apps Educator Level 1 Certification preparation.  For educators, the new 'Certified Educator' courses are truly transformative in helping you incorporate Google tools in your teaching.  Rather than focusing on rote knowledge of apps the course and certification exam focuses on the practical application of the tools in the classroom. This day will focus on Educator Certification including a voucher.    Many that attend this training quickly become Google Certified Educators and are qualified to become Trainers or Innovators.  Exams are taken independently after Bootcamp.

Following the Fundamentals Training, we will utilize Google Classroom for this professional development experience (learn what it is like to be a student for a day in Classroom!) as well as Hangout Chats, Document, Slide and Drawing Collaboration for Engaging Learners, The Many Faces of Forms, Collaborative Calendars, and more.   We will get your testing account setup and apply your voucher so you are ready to take the exam within days of the BootCamp.  Note:  'Passing the test is not guaranteed.'

Attaining optimal engagement in your class: Use Google tools to get yourself and your class into Flow
Learn methods to attain optimal engagement in your class with Flow experiences when using technology tools to engage students and make your classroom more interactive. Tasked with developing students with 21st century skills, teachers are inundated with new and different technologies to help build these skills.

Following the idea less is more, this session will focus on using two tools, Google Docs and Forms, that are easy to learn and use, and yet could be combined in several ways to help students interact with the teacher and other classmates while learning and gathering examples from the internet.

Using these tools it will be easier to experience Flow-like conditions for you and your students in the classroom. Also, using these two tools, teachers will be able to track student participation to assess their own teaching effectiveness as well as share real-time examples of exemplar student work with students or identify and support struggling students.

    Lifting the Social Media Ban
    Social Media is a part of our lives. It can be pervasive, and invasive...until you walk through the school doors and it is blocked. The school building becomes a peaceful oasis where social media can't get you. It's fabulous, the students are protected within the walled garden..... but are they really? Are we doing our students a disservice by overprotecting them? If so, how do we strike a balance between the outside world and the expectation that we protect our students from harm?

    This roundtable discussion is for grade level leaders, administrators, subject heads and anyone who wants to affect change in their schools. Come ready to debate both sides, discuss, and peer beyond the walls into the garden and outside of it. We'll delve into how much is too much, how to protect when the gate is open and strategise on how to deal with the naysayers and "NIMBYs" ; how the school can be the leader rather than the follower.  http://goo.gl/Miq7XL

    How to use Google Forms and Docs to gather content to build three levels of digital portfolios class, group, and individual
    In this session you will learn how to enable your students to proactively use their computers, Chromebooks, or even smartphones, as their own “simultaneous media” (Joint Media Engagement) to collaborate with one another, search topics and ideas on the internet, and curate and submit digital portfolio artifacts in real-time in the classroom. Additionally, your students will engage in more critical thinking and higher level thinking skills as they share their experiences, find examples, and collaborate with you (their teacher) and other classmates.

    Course Level Digital Portfolio: Students take notes and answer questions using Google Forms during the “teaching” (lecture) part of class, and their responses are then shared via links to the class Google Site which creates “Social” note-taking, brainstorming, peer-feedback, etc.

    Group Level Digital Portfolio: Students used Google Docs to collaborate with their group members to gather information and examples from the internet to solve problems, conduct reviews, build collages, etc. which they place in their group Google Site.

    Individual Level Digital Portfolio: Individually, your students can use their devices to respond to classroom learning reflection questions and curate artifacts for their own portfolios.

    Enable “Micro Learning Moments” for your students by using Google Sites in your class and ubiquitously share class information with students
    Recently there has been a rise in what are called “micro learning moments”. These are very short moments in time when students can access learning material on their mobile device allowing more frequent opportunities to review class material. As mobile devices are always with learners (and they are continually looking at them for updates on facebook) why not get your students to use their device as a tool to learn?

    The instructor share the methods to put all your course information on easy to build and use Google Sites. Enable your students to access the information ubiquitously, that is anytime and anywhere. Students who reported using their devices for ‘micro moment’ learning scored higher than average on assignments and exams. Also, by using free Google Site Analytics with your course websites, you can to learn more about how the students used the site, what they liked, and where they “dropped-off” using their devices. This paper discusses a study using Google education tools to enhance student micro learning moments. Both qualitative and quantitative feedback will be discussed.

    Free running invites participants to use creativity, skill and strength to find new ways to navigate a landscape. It is fun, engaging and highly motivating for those who participate. It takes a space (urban or otherwise) and turns it on its head, drawing new functions from an existing, and very fixed, form. In much the same way, Free Learning aims to provide students with an intellectual landscape through which they can playfully discover their own path. It promotes creativity, individuality, team work, freedom and taking responsibility. In this presentation, participants will encounter the Free Learning story, come to understand its underpinnings, and access a live Free Learning environment.brew install libdvdcss

    Track your students' engagement: Use Google Forms, Docs, and Sites to understand and improve interaction and participation in the classroom
    In this workshop you will learn how students can use their mobile devices to answer worksheet questions on Google Forms survey tools. As Google Forms are automatically recording and grading students submissions (which are also instantly emailed back to students) in spreadsheets as students submit their responses. Also, using shared Google Docs for group work you can track student engagement and participation. As a teacher you will be able to keep full records of your student’s participation in each class.

    As students submissions are immediately available to the instructor in Google Sheets and Docs, you will be able to show students (anonymously) exemplars of on- and off-target work, and encourage students to try again to approach learning mastery. It was estimated that “instructor-student interaction”, that is, direct student interaction with individuals and groups, went up from about 20% to over 65% of the time during class. Also, using free Google analytics for the course website, the instructor will be able to learn more about what students liked and used within the site both while they are inside and outside of the classroom.
