I have been fortunate to have been invited to present at a few Google in Education summits run my Appsevents across Europe, delivering sessions on Google Classroom, Flubaroo for Google Forms, Super Quiz for Google Forms and e-portfolios. I am delighted to say I have been invited to New Hampshire to deliver sessions and a keynote presentation on the second day.
I wouldn’t profess to be any expert but simply an enthusiast for the possibilities technology can bring to the classroom and student learning. Sharing my insight is enjoyable and rewarding but I have always taken away ideas from fellow presenters and delegates alike, who are always amazing me with their initiative for ways in which they are using simple free tools to enhance learning in their classes.
I am particularly excited to have the chance to share with Holly Doe in New Hampshire as I was fortunate enough to attend the same Google Teacher Academy as Holly in London in December 2013. During our two day event she shared an inspiring use of Google’s tour builder with us. Her students had created an immersive account of a journey and developed some amazing story-telling skills along the way. I reflected on how delighted I would be as a father if my son had that learning opportunity.
So, of I go to New Hampshire confident of coming back to UK with some new gems to try in my own classroom or share with the schools I am going to be supporting from September. If you haven’t considered such an event yet I hope you might consider one near you. Check our the appsevents website for details of summits near you.
