Google Classroom – Learn how to use Google’s suite of tools for education. This class will cover everything you need to get started with Google. We will do a brief overview of the basics like creating and storing files in Drive and using Docs for collaborative word processing. Then we will dig deeper and learn how to create Forms and use them for quizzes, surveys, and data collection. We will then combine all of this and learn to use Classroom to create classes, set up assignments and grade submissions. We will examine Classroom from both a teacher and student perspective. The session will be hands on so that teachers with Google Apps accounts can begin using the software in class with their own classes. However, you do not need to have a Google Apps for Education Account to participate.

This manipulatives-based training is designed to provide opportunities for educators to increase the depth of understanding in their students’ mathematical experiences. The day’s work will focus on using hands-on materials to help students build conceptual models of the mathematics they are learning, based on the CRA (Concrete-Representational-Abstract) model advocated by Van de Walle and other researchers.

Hands-on materials can provide “light bulb” moments for students of all ages! A concrete model illustrates the reason(s) that the corresponding mathematics works the way it does. It is by doing, and by talking about what one is doing, that real understanding begins to occur.

Join us for a day of modeling and discussion!

Topics:

·         Linear Functions and Models

·         Systems of Equations

This course will walk attendees through the basics of using Microsoft’s solution for online productivity in education. We will begin with an overview of the basics on creating and storing files in OneDrive and using online Word for collaborative word processing. Next we will take a look at the new Microsoft Forms for quizzes, surveys, and data collection. We will then combine all of this as we examine how to use OneNote from simple notes to tagging and sharing and then in the classroom through Class Notebook. Putting this all together we will then look at Microsoft’s Classroom tool. The session will be hands on so that teachers with Office 365 accounts can begin using the software in class with their own classes. However, you do not need to have an Office 365 Account to participate.
