What's Up Google?
Seems like everyday Google makes an update or change to something.  In addition, with that 1 log in that connects 'endless' apps, there is always something you didn't even know what a Google tool!  Allison will highlight many of the updates that took place this past year and introduce you to some Google opportunities you possibly were unaware of!  

This may peak your curiosity about some of the things offered in sessions throughout the summit that you can then go and learn more about.  Stay tuned!  

Better suited for Intermediate/Advanced but there are also things presented in this workshop that will benefit Beginners.  It is more of a quick peak at a variety of tools and updates.  Come with an open mind, the links are there so you can pursue anything of interest during or later!

    GSuite's Greatest Hits 2016 for Leading & Learning
    Here is a collection of favorite features, tips and tricks from GSuite ~ aka Google Apps for Education.   

    With so many applications and programs connected to Google's 1 login and password, many features go unnoticed, unknown and/or underutilized unless you stumble upon them or someone points them out.  

    In this hour of power, I highlight what I think make the 'greatest hits' list in the past year.  Included are tips for gMail, Calendar, Keep, Form AddOns, Docs, Sheets, Search, Draw and more.  The objective is that you will leave with useful things you can put to use immediately.

    Introduzione ai nuovi Google Sites (in italiano)
    Finalmente Google Sites è stato aggiornato. Adesso è molto più facile da utilizzare ed è molto più bello esteticamente. La nuova versione è anche un sito responsivo che si adatta alla forma e dimensione dello schermo del dispositivo.

    Durante la sessione vi farò vedere le nuove funzionalità (e anche alcune che non ci saranno più) e poi vi mostrerò qualche esempio di siti che si possono creare.

    Making Videos with WeVideo, Screencasts and Google Draw
    Advanced/Intermediate

    Video projects help students plan, organise, collaborate, communicate, analyze. The creation process becomes even more meaningful when students can collaborate in real time. The GAFE platform allows this. Using WeVideo, Screencasting Chrome Apps and Google Draw, students can easily create videos. WeVideo is an intuitive cloud-based video editor. Screencasting apps can be used to screencast your desktop or record voice layovers. Using Google Drawings, you can create simple diagrams to be included in your videos.All of these products are seamlessly connected to Google Drive. The session is hands-on - we will go through some case studies, showcasing how videos can be used in the classroom and we will also create our own video during the session. Advanced/Intermediate

    Entrepreneurship for students (and teachers)
    In this 'off topic' session we take a look at entrepreneurship in the new economy, and how both teachers and students can get involved. Dan Taylor is the founder and Director of AppsEvents, a Google for Education partner and organizer of summits and training worldwide. 

    AppsEvents is is a completely virtual organisation with no offices and no full time employees that runs events most weeks quite literally across the globe. We look at this example and others of how people are building a new kind of business, often in their spare time using web-based tools. 

    In particular we look at: 
    1. Teacher entrepreneurs - many teachers who are building businesses in their spare time and the types of things they are doing 
    2.The philosophy from the book 'The four hour work week' by Tim Ferriss and how we use the 80/20 rule and Tim's 'DEAL - Definition, Elimination, Automation and Liberation' to run things 
    2. The tools to do it: How you can manage a business and promote yourself completely online - Almost entirely using Google Drive, Sites, Hangouts, Plus and YouTube 
    3. The network: How to build a business with a team centric approach ....plus a lot more

    Making a DENT with GSuite
    At the end of an inspiring and tiring two days use this session to order your thoughts and ideas and outline a project, idea, task or lesson based on your experiences.

    I often find I need an hour to process the summit so using design thinking we will process the vast array of tools you have learnt about and identify key problems you would like to address in your school, classroom or role then formulate ideas you can act upon. A series of design thinking activities (which you can use in your school or classroom) will lead you towards a strategy, objective and tactics to put in place next week to make the most impact on learning in your organisation.
