Not long after school let out, Somethin' to Tech About hit the road for some learning and sharing. Our first stop was for the one-day FDRESA Summer Institute featuring Google held at the College of Education at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia. We always enjoy facilitating sessions for this conference and this time was no different. Thank you to FDRESA and Daniel Rivera for the opportunity!
Just a few days later we were packing our bags and heading to Valdosta for a two-day Apps Events Google Summit held at Valdosta High School. This was our first experience with Apps Events and we were not disappointed! From start to finish, it was organized and fun! We would like to send a special shout out to Allison Mollica of Apps Events for the invitation to attend and present. Secondly, to all the Valdosta Wildcats, your enthusiastic participation was beyond amazing - Thank you!
We have added the resources for some of the sessions that we facilitated at both of these events and mentioned in this episode. If you like them, make them yours by making a copy. Also, feel free to add your thoughts of how you will be using the resources in the comment section!
Season 2 Sneak Peek
We are excited to be back for Season 2 of Somethin’ to Tech About and want to thank all of our listeners for your support! Season 2 of Somethin’ to Tech About will be all about teching it up a notch. We will focus on G Suite apps and ways educators, students, parents and community members can use G Suite apps to support creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
Our first couple of episodes will help you prepare for the new school year or for getting your digital files in order by getting your Google Drive and Google Classroom organized and ready for easier access. The remainder of the season we will dig deeper into many of the applications of G Suite - Slides, Docs, Forms, etc. and discuss ways for elevating learning for educators, students, and more.
Angie and Dru hope you continue to tune in because Somethin’ to Tech About will be teching it up a notch!
