Keynote: Better Together ~ Teachers, Students & Technology
To increase student learning and engagement in an increasingly digital age, the implementation of technology is a critical step in the 21st century classroom. With so many new apps and devices at our disposal, the hardest part of incorporating technology into daily lessons is trying to figure out where to start. Teachers cannot do this alone. They must rely on their fellow educators and their students to drive lessons to the next level. Joe will help you discover how technology can transform your daily lessons, communication with students and help you take control of the Common Core. Come and see why teachers, students and technology are “better together.”

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!

Take Your Formatives to the next level with Forms!
Some (okay, just me) refer to Google Forms as the “Google Gateway drug”. With its quick to create format, ease of sharing, embedded quizzing, and powerful ties to Sheets, Forms can be anything you want it to be. This session will focus on using the feature of Forms to highlight way you can give formative assessments. We will touch on the new quiz features. You will also learn about Data Validation and how to restrict answers. Finally, we will touch on design and, if time, some of the interactions with Google Sheets.
