Student First Approach to Google Apps

Filed under: Education,Presentations — Learning with Lucie @ 10:16 am

I'm so excited to be presenting at the Google Summit in Santa Clara where I will join a fantastic team of Google experts to offer a variety of sessions about all things Google.

Today' I will be sharing - 

Student First Approach to Google Apps  

If you think the most compelling reasons to use Google Apps are free email solutions, shared calendars, and more efficient and collaborative workflow for staff — THINK AGAIN! This session will feature examples of students learning using Google tools such as using Google Spreadsheets to simulate banking to model the branches of government to presenting proposals for increasing streetlights to make their city safer using Google Maps. Learn how a rural Vermont school deployed Google Apps to its students first. Students took the lead; adults followed, and eventually the whole school district joined. Students first – is a tried and true method of going Google. Bring your own examples of student learning with Google Apps to share.
