Moving Beyond the Toolbox. Using Google Apps for Education to Support Deep Learning
As educators and students become more familiar with the tools of Google Apps for Education, it is now time to consider how this suite of tools can be used to support citizenship, collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking.
This is not a “how to” session, but rather a session intended to inspire and motivate those using Google Apps for Education no matter where they are personally on their learning journey. Examples will include Inquiry Based Learning, Assessment for/as/of Learning, creative and innovative ways of using Google Apps with and by students, as well as ways to integrate Digital Citizenship into the daily work we do with students. Examples are intended to be highly portable and transferable – something you can try tomorrow in your classrooms & schools with your students!
