I always look forward to this opportunity to see old friends, make new friends, share some ideas, and learn so many new things from others.
Below is a list of sessions I will be presenting at the ITIP Google Summit, along with any associated resources. Please feel free to join me for any of these sessions. I look forward to sharing, learning, and chatting with you!
- Triple Differentiation with Google Classroom
5/1 - 2:00PM - Location: Orange
Session resources: ControlAltAchieve.com/differentiation
Description: Google Classroom is much more than just a way to distribute, collect, and organize student work. When used to the fullest, Classroom can be a powerful tool for differentiation for your students. In this session we will look at how to use Classroom features to differentiate at each stage of a project: beginning, middle, and end. We will cover who the students are, how the students learn, and what the students make.
