Brooks Summit Sessions
Yikes! Where Do I Begin?
This workshop is perfect for beginners looking to get their feet wet in the wonderful world of G Suite EDU. Participants will create the necessary foundation to begin using the G Suite apps in the classroom, including the installation of the Chrome Web Browser, logging into and navigating Google Drive, creating folders, creating and moving files, starring frequently accessed documents, and much more.
From Word To Docs
In this session, we’ll explore how Google Docs is a logical next step from Microsoft Word. We’ll look at all of its features (table of contents, columns, explore, document outline, voice typing, suggestion mode, etc.) and then how you can use Docs to create a collaborative environment in your junior and intermediate classrooms. As well, we’ll explore how some of the features in Google Docs will help you improve your ability to provide students with targeted descriptive feedback.
Quick Documentation with Google Forms
In this session, we'll build a very simple Google Form. Teachers and administrators can use this specific workflow for quick documentation of observations. After capturing the notes in a Form, we'll organize and analyze the data in a Google Sheet. Finally, we'll add the Form to your smart phone for even faster data collection. If you are new to forms and want to walk away with one you can use in school on Monday, you'll enjoy this hour.
