The Elementary G-Suite Google Classroom
From recording reading fluency, to developing storytelling skills, to demonstrating problem solving, G Suite for Education can be used in a myriad of ways in the elementary classroom. This workshop will focus specifically on using G Suite for Edu at the K-5 grade levels. We will explore apps and strategies specific to young learners to empower them as creators of their own learning artifacts.
Whether utilizing G Suite for Education on a Chromebook or on a computer, participants will begin to gain an understanding of the core suite of programs and also ways to leverage other web applications and Google Chrome extensions to augment teaching and learning. Key topics addressed in this workshop will include reading and writing, visible thinking strategies, creating interactive learning experiences, portfolios and publishing, and collaborative projects. Whether you have a cart of shared Chromebooks, a 1:1 program, or a single computer in your classroom, this workshop provides an excellent forum for thoughtful integration into the elementary classroom.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is designed specifically for elementary classroom teachers, tech integrationists, and school administrators.
Device/ App Requirements:
Participants should bring a laptop or Chromebook with up-to-date operating system and browser. If bringing a laptop, please install the Chrome browser and update the browser to the most recent version. As many school-issued G Suite for Education accounts limit access to all G Suite for Edu tools, it is highly recommended that workshop participants use and have access to a personal G Suite account to ensure their ability to access all G Suite products covered in the workshop. If using a school issued Chromebook, please be able to login with a personal account to have access to all G Suite for Education tools. Workshop participants also need to be able to install Chrome extensions and apps.
As new apps and updates are continuously changing, a complete list will be published here and emailed to participants closer to the workshop.
