Using Google Tools to Create a Culture of Literary Nerds
It’s crucial for schools to build a culture of reading – to cultivate literary nerds. However, many students balk immediately at the suggestion of reading for class, let alone reading independently. This session will explore how to cultivate an authentic love of reading in students and provide participants with a wide array of technology-based strategies, projects, and activities to get students excitedly reading, talking about, and suggesting books to their peers. Even high school students. Even boys!

Participants will explore projects and activities that encourage students to determine theme, analyze literature, and write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence while also highlighting projects and activities that specifically use GAFE to create and publish student work.

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 Maps Across the Curriculum
Sometimes it’s just handy to create a custom map showing where stuff is. Field trip interest points, restaurants near campus, locations of schools within a district: the possibilities are endless. What about having students collaborate on a shared map, marking places they’ve gone on vacation, locations from literature or history, or spots where they've done data collection for science? The potential for curricular connections incorporating Google Maps is exciting. Come learn how to create and share these maps, and help brainstorm more ideas with fellow educators.
