Event Schedule  

Session 1: 10am - 10:30am ET with Monica Burns "Classroom Management: Quick and Simple Fixes"  

Do you find yourself spending an inordinate amount of time trying to keep your students focused? Would you like more time for instruction? Are you looking for some easy tips to keep things under control in your classroom? There are lots of simple changes you can make in your everyday routine that will make it easier to manage a classroom full of students. Join Monica Burns as she shares non-verbal cues, narration tips, and procedures that she uses in her classroom every day to save time and help keep students on track and focused throughout the school day!  

Session 2: 11am - 11:30am ET with Susan Oxnevad "Using Google Slides to Construct Knowledge and Encourage Student-driven Learning"  

Would you like to design student-driven learning experiences that require students to construct knowledge as they create - an idea supported by the Common Core State Standards? This could be easier than you think. The Google Docs Presentation tool can be a great starting point to begin breaking the barriers of traditional tech integration and help you design student-driven learning experiences. Join Susan Oxnevad for an in-depth look at the features available in this collaborative and user friendly tool and learn to use Google Docs in innovative ways that go well beyond the typical student presentation. Templates to get you started also will be provided.  

Session 3: 12pm - 12:30pm ET with Chris Casal "Stay Connected and Keep Your Privacy with Google Voice"  

In this age of connectivity, parents and colleagues often expect more immediate access to teachers. Teachers frequently give out their personal cell phone numbers because email doesn't always cut it. But what if you don't want to give out your personal phone number? What if your personal phone is already overwhelmed with work-related calls? In this webinar, Chris Casal will explain how to use Google Voice, a free service within the Google Apps suite that ties a separate Google Voice phone number to your email. He will show how to route any incoming calls either to a phone of your choice or to a Google Voice voicemail. He will cover how to check your messages via GMail, see a transcript of the voicemail, or return the call from within the Google Voice Web interface.  

Session 4: 1pm - 1:30pm ET with Jenna Linskens "Great Things You Can Do with Google Docs: More than Just a Word Processor"  

Google Docs is just one application within Google Drive, the user friendly suite of online collaborative tools that have tremendous potential for use in the classroom. While often used as a word processor to create documents such as announcements, letters, reports, and handouts, Google Docs allow you to do so much more than that! Join Jenna Linskens as she shares a variety of interactive ways Google Docs can be used to engage students in advanced, collaborative learning opportunities. Come discover innovative ways to use Google Docs as effective tools for learning!  

Session 5: 2pm - 2:30pm ET with Shelly Sanchez Terrell "Students Sharing Stories Through Digital Storytelling"  

Many learners enjoy listening to stories and creating them. Storytelling encourages learners to use the knowledge they have acquired and apply it to a context and setting in a creative way. In this webinar, join Shelly Terrell as she shares various online tools and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) that allow learners to create and share their stories digitally. Participants will discover cool digital storytelling tools and lesson ideas.  

Brenda Hauff

Session 6: 3pm - 3:30pm ET with Brenda Huff "Hour of Code: Free Resources to Help Your Students Code"  

Have you heard about the Hour of Code and wondered what it was all about? Or maybe you doubted that you and your students could participate. Hour of Code started in 2013, with the goal of having 100,000 students participate in 1 hour of coding activities. Currently they reach tens of millions of students worldwide with tutorials in over 40 languages. Although the Hour of Code has a promoted week each year, this resource can be used year round.
