  • Google for Young Learners and STEM- Barbara De Santis will help you explore Google options for younger learners in the morning.

  • Visual notetaking- If a picture is worth 1000 words, then why are your students creating text notes? Learn the basics of visual notetaking allowing you (and your students) to make stronger connections and improve retention. No drawing skills are required (if you can draw a square, you can create visual notes!). Grades 6-12. Wednesday, June 1 8:30-2:30 at Selover.

  • Everything Google! Barbara De Santis will help you explore Google options for your Classroom- come explore ways to streamline your workflow, encourage student writing, create charts and more. There is too much Google for one class so a pre-course survey will help design a class that meets the interest and needs of the attendees! You will get a survey (after you register) to help determine the exact focus of the class. Grades K-8. Thursday, June 2 8:30-2:30 at Selover.
