Making the Most out of Google Slides
 I have found an add-on that makes our Google Slides interactive, that provide real-time feedback, and lock our students into their screens so that they can't jump ahead or get distracted. This session would help teachers use Pear Deck participate in a demo lesson, and create their own lesson so that they are ready for when school starts back in August.  I chose only one add-on because I know as a participate how overwhelming it can be to get multiple add-ons thrown at you.

Google Tools for Struggling Readers
Much of what students read is digital, but many find it harder to read this way, especially struggling readers. Or maybe they don't struggle, but look at their screens for so long that the words start to blur and they just need a break. Google extensions can help students read and process digital text in a way that makes sense to them depending on their ability and preferences and can schedule built in breaks and promote physical activity all at the same time.

Less of a Hot Mess
Teachers are pulled in a 1000 different directions and simply don’t have time for anything ‘extra’. So when a technology update comes along it can be something there isn’t time to navigate. Let me show you how the updates to Google Classroom can, in the long run, help you organize and simplify; saving time, energy, and making things less of a hot mess. This session will have not only ways to use the update (and what it can do for you), it will also have lesson ideas that can be used in any type of classroom.

These session will focus on creating enageing slides to hook your class into your content, make it interactive, track student data, and allow you to see student work in real-time. You will be able to display student work in seconds on your TV or smart board, create questions where students can draw, drag, type, and choose multiple choice answers. The best thing - you have COMPLETE control over your students screen. You decide what they see, when to lock them in, and when to allow or block interaction with the slide. If you want to bost engagement in your lessons, this session is for you!
