The second season of ‘The Innovation Institute’, hosted by Springdale Arkansas Schools and the eMINTS National Center, is taking place this June 8 and 9, 2016.
This 2-day event aims to improve current instructional technology practices and is a great opportunity for educators to come together and learn from each other.
If you have previously attended any of our Google Pre-certification bootcamps, we encourage you to share your knowledge and ideas on using Google Tools for education bysubmitting a session proposal.
For those attending the conference, we are happy to announce that we will be giving away some free passes for our 2016 US summits and bootcamps!
We may also be offering our 1-day Google PreCertification course as a post-conference workshop. Additional details to be announced soon.
Introducing the “Featured Google School” Project
We’ve been asked many times for case studies on International Schools that have implemented Google Apps. How they did it, what were some of the challenges during the early stages, common teacher/student issues, best practices that had a huge impact etc. We decided to address this by starting a monthly “Google School Spotlight” feature on both the AppsEvents blog and this newsletter, rolling out next month.
We already contacted some school leaders that have inspired our team and we are still looking for innovative Google schools that would be happy to participate. If you are in a school leadership position or involved in Google Apps administration or technology integration, we would like to celebrate your success by involving you in this year long project. Should you be interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please Take The AppsEvents 2016 Survey of EdTech in International Schools
We're conducting a survey on Google Apps use and related EdTech in International Schools and your input would be appreciated. This is the first of what will be an annual survey and we will close for submissions at the end of March.
In exchange for completing the survey, we will share the results with all respondents including our analysis of the trends and best practices we note among other International Schools.
A lot has happened in education this past year in the development of cloud based learning and Google Apps. Many innovative ideas have been developed and shared worldwide. Now is a great time to take your learning to the next level.
The summit is a fantastic learning event to support classroom teachers, school leaders and school IT staff on leveraging Google Apps for Education tools to enhance and support 21st century learning.
The New York event has been focused to really meet the needs of the NY Google Community and the EARLY BIRD pricing has been extended through March 4th. For those who haven't registered yet, now is the perfect time to take advantage of the lower rates.
Looking forward to meet you at the summit!
Additionally, if you have attended an AppsEvents Google PreCertification Bootcamp would you mind completing this feedback survey? We would love to know if you did become Google Certified in any or all areas and what you have been doing or future plans!
