High Point Google Apps Summit


Earlier this week I had the opportunity to participate in the High Point Google Apps and BYOD Summit. Alice Keeler shared her passion for using technology transform the learning experience for our students, along with the tools she uses in her classroom. There were also presentations about 3D printers, Twitter for teachers, tech for specific content areas, and great tools for teaching.

I was able to lead a workshop and share my favorite and most-used Google apps, add-ons, and extensions. With only 45 minutes, I knew there wasn't going to be able to cover everything in depth while still allowing time to "play" with the tools. To ensure that my audience had ready access to the tools, tips, and suggested uses I re-purposed my training site: Apps, Extensions, Add-Ons, Oh My!  During this workshop we looked at:

  • LucidChart 
  • OneTab
  • Save to Google Drive
  • Snagit
  • Choice Eliminator
  • Doctopus
  • TextHelp Study Skills
