On Saturday, May 10, 2014 we held the first TDSB Google Camp. The Camp was such a success that it has turned into an annual event. This conference allows educators to share their expertise, enthusiasm, and innovation to drive teaching and learning with technology. Over 500 teachers and administrators from both the Elementary and Secondary panels participate in this full day event held every year on a Saturday. All presenters are TDSB staff and include teachers, technicians, and administrators.
The event’s workshops were organized by user level (e.g. beginner, advanced), grade level (e.g. primary, senior), and user role (e.g. teacher, administrator). And the day ends with a competitive “Demo Slam” in which participants showcase something simple, fun and new to do with a Google App.
Between and after workshops, participants continue to explore educational possibilities with Google Apps. Presenters also post their profiles, presentation materials, and resources for future reference.
The TDSB Google Camp website provides links to the workshops, presenter profiles, session resources, and the TDSB Google Apps resource site.
