Shinshu JALT:

Get Going with Google: An introduction to G Suite for Education and more!

Date: Sunday, July 30th, 2017 Time: 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Speaker: Rab Paterson

Description:
Session 1: This session will cover digital pedagogy with practical examples drawn from the Just in Time Teaching, Flipped Learning, and Blog Journaling pedagogical approaches. These will be demonstrated by showing how Google Apps (Blogger, Docs, Forms, Google+ Communities, Google Groups, Google Sites, and YouTube) together with an RSS Reader (Feedly) can accomplish these ideas in an easy to manage way, even for teachers new to educational technology. After the overview and demonstration of this theory, the session will become more hands on and the instructor will go on to work directly with attendees on how to set up and use all these apps in this way and teachers will make their own Sites and accounts for these various apps.

This section will be followed by a presentation and discussion on TPACK and how this approach can help teachers utilise the Google Apps above in varying subjects and types of classes. The entire morning session will end with a more formal Q and A session, although attendees are free to ask questions throughout the session.

Session 2: This session will cover the many different teacher credentials and qualifications that Google offer. These will be explained in turn with the pros and cons of each along with advice, suggestions, and tips on how to gain these certificates and what to expect once attendees have them. Some time will be spent looking at the exams and where to find resources to prepare for them along with guidance on how to keep current with Google's products. The session will conclude with reasons why teachers should consider going Google. The entire afternoon session will end with a more formal Q and A session, although attendees are free to ask questions throughout the session.
