Google Apps as part of an LMS

posted Apr 3, 2014, 8:34 AM by James Petersen   [ updated Apr 3, 2014, 8:34 AM ]

    Learn how to integrate Google Apps for Education (docs, sheets, drawing, sites, forms and scripts) and other tools (ex. twitter, blogger, socrative, poll everywhere) to develop and deliver learning to your students. From techniques to facilitate classroom management to increasing collaboration between students and among your colleagues, this session will delve deeper into the behind-the-scenes power of web 2.0. Flip the class, engage students in meaningful collaboration (creation together), emphasize student inquiry, and build learning situations that actively promote their voice and encourage them to create and participate in their own learning. It is recommended that participants be comfortable with the basic operation of Google Apps for Education. Knowledge of scripting, HTML, and web 2.0 technology is an asset, but not a prerequisite.

Program highlights:

  • Integrating Google drive, blogger and weebly to deliver content through the web.

  • Augmenting the functionality of Google Drive through Google App Scripts

  • Increasing the role of student voice through meaningful collaboration.

  • Keeping parents "in the loop"
