Google Apps provides teachers and students with a wide range of digital learning tools that support learning and collaboration in a limitless number of ways. This session will be an introduction to the core features of the Google Apps for Education platform.  The day will be a combination of hands-on time with Google Drive, Docs, Sheets and Slides mixed with the sharing of powerful classroom examples built upon these tools. Participants will see how assessment, student creativity, collaboration and varied representation of learning can be accomplished through Google Apps.

This session is aimed at the beginner level of Google Apps experience, although the classroom examples will benefit all comfort levels. Participants need to come with either a personal or school district Google Account or Gmail account. Participants need to also bring a wireless device, ideally a laptop or chromebook.
