Rethinking Learning Spaces

Do your classrooms and libraries look almost exactly like they did a century ago? For the first time in decades, a number of schools can answer this question with a resounding “No!” From mobile-friendly classrooms to media centers transformed into maker spaces, this session will provide specific, affordable ways you can redesign learning environments to meet the needs of today’s students.

Google Apps: Beyond the Basics
Christine Weiser (moderator);Tim and Samantha Smith, Shannon Mersand, Erica Hartman and Sean Beavers
Many schools have embraced Google Apps for Education (GAFE) because
of its flexibility, its affordability, and the fact that it works with a wide range of platforms and devices. This panel of experts will showcase their schools’ uses of Google apps, introduce participants to some newer and lesser-known options, and explore a variety of tips and tricks for maximizing the use of GAFE and other Google tools in a school setting.
