Google Apps in the Classroom - Virtual Workshop

Many institutions are implementing Google Apps for administrative reasons (to provide email to students, for example). Google Apps, though, has many facets and the resources can also be used as a pedagogical tool for teaching and learning. Through this workshop, attendees will gain a better understanding of the Google Apps for Higher Education and how they can be utilized inside and outside of the classroom. Attendees will also see through specific examples how faculty at North Shore Community College use Google Apps with their students.

Andrea Milligan will present an overview of the Google Apps for Higher Education. She will also discuss the various uses and benefits of each tool in the teaching and learning environment.

Larry Davis will discuss how he uses Google Documents, Google Sites, and Blogger in his onsite and online courses. His presentation will use examples from student projects to highlight the pedagogical benefits of using each tool.

Lance Eaton will explore Google Forms both as a means of surveying students and soliciting feedback throughout the semester and developing rubrics for either instructor or peer feedback. And he will also highlight some of the benefits and uses of using Google Documents to organize course and student work.
