Google is sponsoring a CUE produced Google Workshop for Educators in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The registration fee for this workshop is usually $250, but due to Google’s sponsorship, this event is FREE with CUE membership (which only costs $40 and includes other benefits). And unlike the Google Teacher Academy, there is no application required for this workshop – simply sign up online!
Search, learn, share! Brought to you by the producers of the Google Teacher Academy, a Google Workshop for Educators (GWE) introduces participants to innovative ways Google tools can be used in education. A full day of fast-paced presentations and hands-on activities includes experience with advanced search techniques, collaborative web-based applications, and inspirational instructional strategies. Google Certified Teachers share ways they’ve implemented tools such as Google Docs, Google Earth, Google Sites, and… even more. Participants who complete the event are given access to the Google Workshops for Educators Network (GWEN), an online community focused on supporting educators as they learn more about the power of Google to drive student learning. Sign up now!
I’ll be leading this workshop myself, so I hope to see some of you there. If you’re in the area – don’t pass this one up! Let me know in the comments if you have any questions. :)
