My Sessions:


The Big Blank Wall
  • Time: 9:00am - 10:30am
  • Location: PAC
  • SCHED link:
  • Description: The world is changing and our classrooms need to change as well. What skills do our students need to be successful in their future? And how do we as educators embrace this change? Take a trip with Eric back to his first classroom to learn about the difference between "Process" and "Purpose", to see what the future holds for our students, and explore the 4 C's we need to teach our students to prepare them for what is ahead.

Super Screencastify Activities for Students and Teachers
  • Time: 11:50am - 12:45pm
  • Location: B101
  • SCHED link -
  • Session Resources:
  • Description: It has never been easier than now for students and teachers to create their own videos. Screencastify is a free Google Chrome web extension that lets you or your students record your computer screen, voice, and webcam. The recorded video can then be saved easily to Drive, shared with others, or downloaded. Learn how to install and use this tool, and then explore ways this can be used in schools including instructional videos, student assessments, student projects, personalized teacher feedback, narrating slideshows, giving speeches, dubbing videos, explaining solutions, and much more.

Google Tools to Support all Learners
  • Time: 2:00pm - 2:55pm
  • Location: B101
  • SCHED link:
  • Session Resources:
  • Description: There are many Google tools, apps, extensions, and features available to assist all learners, including students with special needs. These can include text-to-speech, speech-to-text, readability, reading comprehension, audio support, organization, focus, navigation, and more. Learn what tools are available and how to access and use these with students.

Hipster Google - Tools You Probably Never Heard Of
  • Time: 3:05pm - 4:00pm
  • Location: PAC
  • SCHED link:
  • Session Resources:
  • Description: Everyone knows about Google Docs, Gmail, Search, and other common Google tools. But there are also loads of smaller, lesser-known, but powerful tools that can be used for teaching and learning. Learn about 70+ hidden gems such as nGram, Trends, AutoDraw, Chrome Music Lab, Toontastic, Landlines, Meme Buddy, Reverse Image Search, Instant Search Cards, Semantris, Grasshopper, Art Palette, Timelapse, Data GIF Maker and more (List subject to change based on how cool and unknown the tools remain.)

📅 THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2022

MacGyver Google
  • Time: 9:00am - 10:45am
  • Location: B101
  • SCHED link:
  • Session Resources:
  • Description: Is Docs just for word processing, Sheets just for numbers, and Slides just for presentations? No! Just like MacGyver can re-purpose a cardboard tube, stapler, and bubble gum to make a fully functioning jet pack, you and your students can use technology in creative and inventive ways. See how ordinary Google tools can be used to create stop-motion animation, interactive images, blackout poetry, pixel art, and so much more!
