How to Use Google Drive in Your Classroom
We will present information about the process of using Google Drive in the classroom and as a link to home. We will show examples of ways we've used it to enhance student learning. We'll discuss technical difficulties that we faced when introducing this to our parents. We'll share the positive impact and excitement that has arisen in both students and parents as we incorporated this into our classrooms - even within the first week! We'll share ways that the presenter portion of Google Drive can be used in a wide variety of ways with children as young as first grade and up through all grade levels. Google Drive provides a great entry level engine to introduce children to presentation software. Although slides cannot yet be edited on an iPad, they can be easily viewed. It is likely that Google will soon provide a solution to the tablet issue.

Introduction to
Google Scholar
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research. Explore related works, citations, authors, and publications. You can even locate complete documents through your library or on the web. Google Scholar is certainly something that can be of assistance to your students but if you are a teacher in graduate school, you will find this session very helpful.

Fusion Tables for Lightning Fast Data Visualization
Fusion Tables is an experimental data visualization web app from Google. Attendees will import a spreadsheet of student assessment data into Fusion Tables and use the visualization tools to explore the dozens of charts and graphs which are only a click away. Embedding those dynamic charts in a website and sharing by a link will also be done. This fast and efficient way to disaggregate data will free up teachers to spend more time on instruction. More advanced implementation options (ex. using Google Forms and Google Apps Script to automate the process) will be explored as time allows.

Leading Learners to Level Up
How many times are teachers shocked to discover after the learning episodes are complete, that the learners did not, in fact, learn? This type of communication is designed to help teachers find a path for formative assessment that leads learners to level up. We will discuss developing and implementing a system of formative assessment that harnesses the power of positivity. Learners will be able to say “I can...” and “Can you help me...” based on the assessment empowering the learner to have control over the path to success

Beyond PowerPoint: Discover Prezi
Prezi is a free, Flash-based application that lets you break away from the slide-by-slide approach of most presentations. Instead, it allows you to create non-linear presentations where you can zoom in and out of a visual map containing words, links, images, videos, etc. It allows students to see the “big picture” and then zoom in on the details. You can design a prescribed path or let the presentation be free form, allowing you or your students to move in any direction. These presentations are stored online so that you can link to them from your website, or you can export them to your computer. You can also invite collaborators to contribute to your Prezi online. Bring your laptop to this workshop so that you can see what all the hype is about and start making your very own Prezis!
