UA faculty have access to a variety of Google Applications in UA’s instance of Google for Education, including: Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Drawing, Maps, Calendar, and Sites. (I will not be covering Google Classroom in this presentation.) During the presentation we’ll use the technologies themselves to facilitate exploring what they are and how they might be incorporated into teaching, to streamline processes, and learning, to facilitate student-content as well as student-student engagement. The presentation will explicitly share examples of layering folders in Drive for different levels of sharing and interactivity, using Forms and their resulting Sheets as layered activities, designing activity Slides for interactive synchronous presentations, and applying comments in Drawing to annotate images.
After attending this presentation, participants will be able to briefly describe the various Google Applications for Education and discuss how/why they are useful for teaching and learning. Participants will be provided with links to digital help resources as well as example materials and templates to use while developing their own activities. Participants are asked to bring their laptops and/or other mobile devices so that they might engage with the content.
