We’d like to point you to the Google pre-summit one day workshop which is an optional EXTRA that you can attend the day before the summit should you wish to. This pre-conference workshop has its own pricing. (There will just be ONE workshop at the price of $199). Here are the details of this one day pre-summit workshop taken straight from the summit website http://za.gafesummit.com/pre.
“This one-day hands-on primer begins with a welcome activity that invites participants to co-create a new vision for education in the age of Google. Discover a powerful kit of research tools for students and educators. Learn how Google Docs and Google Drive can facilitate collaboration between students and among colleagues. Curate and edit educational videos using YouTube for Teachers and the YouTube editor. Explore an overview of Google apps on iOS, and powerful ways students and teachers can use them. “Even more” inspiring instructional ideas (including an demonstration of Google apps scripting) conclude the day before a final reflection activity. This special workshop, hosted in the Google Office, offers something for beginners and intermediate users… and there is no better preparation for the Google Apps for Education summit.”
We do hope you will take hold of this fantastic opportunity to find out how you can use Google in your classroom with great benefit to your students.
