The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” Suan’s great passion is working on empowering the current and next generation of students to become lifelong learners. As an Education Evangelist for Google, he gets to work closely with educators, school leaders and fellow learners on enabling the use of technology at the institution level. Google has been his home for the last 14+ years, with stints in 7 offices, 5 countries and 3 product teams.
When not being “up in the air”, Suan resides in Sydney where he enjoys the 300 days of sunshine a year with his awesome wife and two wonderful kids.
If you’re a teacher conducting virtual learning, chances are you are making screencasts to teach your students. In this session you will learn some of the different ways you can develop creative and engaging screencasts, and some tips and techniques for maximizing various web tools. By implementing some of these ideas you will save time while still presenting excellent online lessons.
With so many uncertainties that lay ahead for returning to school this fall, this session will be a great opportunity to discover how to use simple existing teaching and learning tools, in creative and innovative new ways. This session will explore strategies to digitize your teaching day with G Suite for Education apps, diversifying current approaches and app-smashing digital tools.
In this session, we will go through various functions of Flipgrid. The presenter will share a few ways to use Flipgrid during online learning and how it can help to build a class community.
Learn strategies and structures that help students take ownership of their learning, advocate for themselves, and document their learning journey from any location.
Sheets isn’t just for data tracking – it can be an interactive learning tool for students too! In this session, we’ll take a look at some ways you can use Sheets with your students that are engaging, and how conditional formatting can automatically provide feedback as they complete the activities.
In this session, we will look at another way of using Slides – App Prototyping. With the use of hyperlinks, students can start to plan and design an app, including testing and sharing it. A great way to make use of a tool we all know and love.
Conferring and small group work are the most important elements of teaching readers in the classroom. How can we move this work to the virtual world? Take your guided reading workshops or Readers Workshop small group conferences online with Google Meet. (K-5)
Explore how you can use Google Expeditions to step back in time or allow pupils to experience the world without leaving the classroom / home! A focus on using tools to explore history, geography, science and more. Learn how to create your own 360 virtual reality tours with Google Tour Creator.
So, we have planned to return to school in September – face to face but also factor in the virtual aspect of teaching. We will have students and staff who will not be able to attend. We are moving away from exercise books and text books and using Google Classroom as our main tool for work output and return.
One tool we have made significant use of during the lockdown is Sites. I have created CPL website which hosts all teacher training – with many aspects using Autocrat to generate certificates for staff to say they have completed the training. They are then using this as evidence to upload into their performance management.
Along side this, I have created a virtual learning platform, which allows staff to upload their instructions and screencastifys and tasks onto one platform for students to be able to work asynchronously.
I would like to showcase the potential of Sites as my tool which is aiding to support our school.
Create 7 different formative assessments from just a list of 6 keywords. Push differentiated resources to students in the same class on Google Classroom. Also use the learning set to play Quizlet live. Fast, fun, formative and free.
In this session… we will share ideas over how you can leverage the power of G Suite to support your school’s learning goals for 2020/2021
