My Sessions:

📅 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 2022

Google Screencast for Teaching and Learning
  • Time: 9:00am - 9:50am EST
  • Google's new Screencast tool for Chromebooks lets teachers and students record their screen, webcam, voice and annotations, and makes an interactive transcript that can be searched and translated! Learn how to use all the features of this awesome new tool, and explore how you and your students can use it for creative learning activities including instructional videos, student assessments, student projects, personalized teacher feedback, narrating slideshows, giving speeches, dubbing videos, explaining solutions, and much more.

Before You Turn It In - Self-Editing Tools for Google Docs
  • Time: 10:00am - 10:50am EST
  • Google Docs offers many tools and options to help students become better writers. In this session we will explore helpful self-editing tools including text-to-speech tools, grammar and style checking add-ons, extensions for rewriting suggestions, thesaurus tools, plagiarism checking, and more. Empower your students to turn in their best writing!

Addressing Student Cheating in Google Workspace
  • Time: 12:00pm - 12:50pm EST
  • Although technology brings many benefits, people often worry about it increasing students’ options for cheating. While there is no fail safe solution, there are options to help. In this session we will look at Google tools to help teachers and tech staff prevent and detect plagiarism, cheating, and other issues, including revision history, file details, Forms features, citation tools, and more. We will also consider non-tech responses to the problem including evaluating assessments, school policies, and more.

Analyzing Student Data With Google Sheets
  • Time: 1:00pm - 1:50pm EST
  • Google Sheets can be a powerful way to analyze your students' data, look for patterns and trends, and identify student strengths and weaknesses. Take the mystery out of Sheets and gain insight about your students with features including sorting, filtering, formulas, sparklines, charts and graphs, conditional formatting, pivot tables, and more.
