SPOTLIGHT: WanderlustEDU – The Journey to Transform School Culture Starts with Teachers
In WanderlustEDU we take a deep breath, learn to re-appreciate why we became involved in education, and prepare to try new things. The courage to stay relevant in our profession is a work in progress. We can do our absolute best when we understand and nurture certain attributes: Motivation, Environment, Skills, and Knowledge. Motivation is our what drives us. Our Environment is the conditions in which we exist and embark. Skills are what we have and gain along the way. Knowledge is what we know through training and experience.

Online Tools that Integrate with Google Classroom for 1 Click Assignments
Middle and high school teachers who have some basic knowledge and skill already with Google Classroom will be thrilled to see the number of online tools that make it simple to assign content to their classrooms right from the online tool. Participants should already have Google Classrooms set up and have had some experience with making assignments in them.

Attendees will explore up to fifteen different online tools that integrate with Google Classroom. They will have the chance to not only learn about these tools, but try their hand at creating some assignments for their classrooms using the content found within them.

Tools include video creation, reading comprehension, news sources, quizzes, and more. Even though all tools won't apply to all teachers, there are a few here for everyone & learning this concept while being on the lookout as more tools are integrated with Classroom will be super helpful!

Participants will be able to:
1) Access a webpage that includes links to, information about, and how to integrate with Google Classroom, online tools that are often used with middle and high school students.
2) Find content on these online educational tools and assign it to a previously set up classroom.
3) Explore these online tools beyond the workshop session using the Google Site I have set up.

Forms can be employed as an interactive digital worksheet, a vehicle for reflection, and as a tool for formative assessment of students. In this introductory, hands-on session, we will learn how to create a form, where form responses are stored, how to create a form question and the types of answer choices available, get a visual summary of the results, and turn your form into a quiz.

Must-Have Literacy & Math Tools for G Suite
G Suite for Education puts powerful productivity and collaboration tools into the hands of students and teachers alike, no matter where they are or what type of device they’re using. And the availability of apps, extensions and add-ons provides students with even more support, personalization and means of engagement in their learning. But with thousands of these third party tools to choose from, it can be difficult to know which ones will truly support the needs of all your students.
This hands-on session will explore several of Texthelp’s suite of Google apps and extensions, including Read&Write and EquatIO, which can support students in their reading, writing, math and more. Participants will get to see these tools in action, with particular emphasis on how they can benefit all types of learners and support a UDL framework in the classroom.

Power up Pedagogy with Screencasting via Screencastify!
Screencasting is not a new concept nor was it introduced with the cloud.  Teachers have been screencasting for years yet so many have never considered doing it.   With the increased adoption of student-centered learning, Universal Design for Learning, personalized learning, flipped learning, blended learning, screencasting skills are not optional.  

Why would you learn about screencasts?
  • Engage learners with video
  • Provide alternative means of learning
  • Provide accommodations
  • Give students a voice and choice
  • Flip your classroom with a quick video that you can use over an over again
  • Provide instruction when you are not in class or available for individual coaching
  • Screencasts can provide learners a student-centered and engaging learning experience in both distance and traditional learning settings.
  • Align your instruction with objectives, goals, and standards with your own direction 
  • Provide fast formative feedback (your voice and screen works better than a pen any day!)
In this session you will learn:
  • Specific ways to use screencasting with examples and directions
  • Tools for screencasting
  • How to create a screencast with Screencastify
  • How to share your screencast via Drive, YouTube, Sites, Forms, or Classroom!
This session will help those NEW to Screencasting and Screencastify but seasoned screencasters may get some good ideas to go further! :)

Google Slides and Drawings: Where did you find that image?

Students are always looking for just the right image or graphic to make their digital work stand out. As teachers, we love using clip art and pictures to get parent and student attention. However, in a world of 'just Google it', it is important to teach and model for our students where to find images easily and legally. Learn more about navigating an image search, easy to use sites with copyright cleared images, and the importance of giving attribution to someone's creative work.

Mastering the Chromebook
Not just another pretty laptop, the Chromebook gives you access to the power of Google’s Chrome browser and any application and extension built to work with your Google account. It may not seem like it, but there is a lot of power, potential, and even a little pizazz inside just waiting to be unleashed.
In this session, we will explore the Chromebook and the features built into its operating system. We will review how to setup your device so that you can access many of its features even if you find yourself working offline.

Have a look at the new “flip” Chromebooks that have started to make their way into the classroom that blend laptop and tablet environments. Bring your Chromebook to the party and walk away a master of your device.

Formulating Assessments with Google Forms
In 2016 Google announced that a new “Quiz” feature had been added to Google Forms. Since then, the integration of this tool has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for the app in education. Then, in late 2017 Google opened the door for grades from a Google Forms Quiz to be seamlessly imported into Google Classroom assignments. Can you say, “Mind Blown?” In this hands-on session we will explore the Forms quiz feature in detail including point values, automatic feedback, and the different ways teachers can grade student responses. We will then investigate how all of this integrates with Google Classroom. And yes, there may be a quiz at the end.
