Mindtools: What does it mean to be literate now?
We have created powerful new tools for the mind. Thing is, those tools are constantly evolving and changing even as the things they operate on change as well. This puts us in the position of having to learn how to find tools, and understanding the substrate on which they work. Literacy in these days is not just reading and writing, but also understanding what knowledge tools are available, and how they can be used in interesting new ways.

Want to get any kids excited about learning? Try TRICK and APPS, the KEYS to engagement
Google Apps is flourishing in the education world.  It has come a long way since Esther Wojcicki and a small group of dedicated educators brought the tools together for schools in 2006. Today millions of students worldwide are using what has now become Google Apps for Education. Recently, Google Apps use in schools has exploded because school leaders recognize the transformative power of cloud-based work and sharing. An entire ecosystem is evolving around Google Apps for Education. Tools like Hapara’s Teacher Dashboard and the newly education focused Google Play are making it possible for educators to do things that simply were not possible before.  In this presentation, Esther will share her experience of convincing Google to provide Apps for education for free to schools around the world, and how she uses Google Apps to TRICK her students.

Chrome Supports for Struggling Students
As many as two-thirds of students in classrooms today score below proficiency in reading. This includes students who speak English as a second language, students with disabilities, and others who do not yet possess the skills needed to meet today’s rigorous standards.

In this session, participants will learn more about common supports such as text-to-speech, text and picture dictionaries, translator, study skills, and annotations that can help students who struggle with reading and writing. Attendees will also see demonstrations of these support tools in Read&Write for Google™ which includes Read&Write for Google Docs™, a Chrome Extension that works on PCs, Macs, and Chromebooks to make Google Documents more accessible, and Apps to make other common file types, such as PDF and ePub, accessible within Google Drive.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Chromebooks, but Were Afraid to Ask
Chromebooks have been lambasted for what they don't do. They don't run local apps; they don't work offline; they don't run Java. But in San Diego, we LOVE Chromebooks for what they don't do. They don't take forever to start up; they don't need re-imaging every summer; they don't require special software to manage. The fact that Chromebooks can be purchased for as little as $200 is just an added benefit.

Join us to learn:How San Diego County Schools are using ChromebooksHow to evaluate different models of ChromebooksHow to purchase Chromebook Management LicensesHow to enroll Chromebooks in the Management programWhich issues we encountered during our Chromebook rollout

We will also cover how to manage Chromebooks, including:Restricting sign-in to students onlySetting networksThe difference between Device and User SettingsPreloading applications, extensions, and web pagesRetaining and erasing session recordsRestricting camera usePrinting

Google Sites - (Get rid of those Metal File Cabinets)
Google Sites is a free web-based tool which provides teachers the opportunity to move all of their “file cabinet” documents to the cloud. Teachers will learn to use this tool as their classroom website to be utilized as a launch pad to all of their Unit lesson plans, student portfolios and pacing guides. Teachers will use this tool to communicate classroom happenings and project/activities deadlines with students and parents. Teachers can differentiate instruction by utilizing “permissions” to allow students to progress through the learning experience at their own pace. Teachers can store student artifacts and portfolios within the pages of their lesson plans. All teaching resources: lesson plans, black-line masters, activity directions, and web-based resource links can be stored and organized using Google Sites.

The 20% Project is an idea developed at IBM and later adopted and expanded by Google. Google employees are encouraged to spend 20% of their work time dedicated to "passion" projects that ultimately improve upon and expand the Google brand of service and product offerings as well as venture into new R&D projects and community based philanthropic projects. The concept of The 20% Project as applied in the classroom is a means for students to explore their own fascination and passion surrounding academic content standards. Learn how the 20% project was developed for classroom use in the Google CAPE (Computer and Programming Experience) Summer program. As the Faculty Advisor for Google CAPE I was able to modify this for school use and eventually launched The 20% Project in my Algebra and Technology classes in middle school. In this session I will share the experience from CAPE and my 3 years of classroom practice and together we can brainstorm how you can adopt such a project for your own classroom. You will leave this session with a wealth of useable ideas for classroom practice and find new ways to utilize Google Tools to manage such a project.
