My 2018 SC Midlands Google Summit Sessions

I am excited and honored to once again present at the 2018 SC Midlands Summit Featuring Google for Education in Columbia, SC this June 13th and 14th.

I 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 SC Midlands 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!

    Description: You can't do that in Docs! If you have ever made this claim, you may not be taking advantage of everything Docs can do. Built into Docs is Google Drawings, a tool that can add more features and make Docs more interactive. See how you and your students can use the integrated Drawings option in Docs to add playable videos, insert text boxes, add captions to images, embed graphic organizers, add interactive activities, provide a whiteboard area for student work, and more.

    Description: Google's Tour Builder is an easy to use but powerful tool for students to create virtual tours, including locations, images, videos, descriptions, hyperlinks, and more. These tours can be used in any subject area such as retelling the events from a novel, tracing the locations of a historical event, visiting different biomes or landforms around the world, and more. Tours can be viewed by others in Tour Builder, or even imported into Google Earth for a full 3D experience. Learn how you and your students can make and take virtual tours with Google Tour Builder.

  • Google Classroom: Amazing Mobile Features

    SCHED link: http://sched.co/ECjE
    Description: Google Classroom is a great tool for managing class assignments, collaboration, discussions and more. However, if you are only using the normal web version, you are missing out on many special features. Students and teachers can also run Classroom as a mobile app on phones, tablets, and modern Chromebooks. The mobile version adds several additional tools such as handwritten annotations, the option to take and insert images and videos, share content from other mobile apps in Classroom, push notifications, and more. See how you and your students can take Classroom to the next level with mobile!

However, with just a few tricks you and your students can actually use Google Slides to make stop motion movies.

Learn how to use Slides to create and share stop motion movies with photos, shapes, text, and more.
