BreakoutEDU Get students out of their seats and solving problems. This activity can be adapted to any grade level and in any content. Students will work as a team to "breakout" of an in-class escape room. We would love to create a game for your class to participate in or would love to help you write a game to execute with your kids!
Google Classroom Take your classroom outside of your four walls. Learn how to use Google Classroom to manage assignments, increase communication, and engage with students outside of the classroom.
Google Slides for More Than Just Presentations! Learn how to use Google Slides for a million other things, other than as a background for your lecture. In this training, learn about how to use slides for crowdsourcing, brainstorming, writing, creating graphic organizers and so much more!
All Things Google Come get your Google on! We'll discuss searching/researching tips, Google Chrome browser and extensions, Google Apps for Education (Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Sheets, Google Forms), and Google Classroom. This collaborative, hands-on session will explore how to use Google tools in the classroom to engage and enhance your instruction. Seesaw: For ALL THE THINGS! Students of all ages and in all content areas will love showing what they know with this amazing app! Easily create online portfolios and foster an engaging online classroom community. Students can create videos, add notes, comment on each other's items, and add in any content created in other apps. These items are all shared with the class instantly!
