Have you stared at the “Priority” folder and thought, “Everything is a priority, how can I do this?”, or looked at your Google Drive and thought, “I really should spend some time managing this?” But you have no idea where to begin? Let me show you some tips and tricks to inspire you to organize your Google life. We will talk about using “Keep”, ways to organize your folders for Drive and Google Classroom. Sharing is caring so come play and start organizing all those important digital pieces of your life!
STEM can be time consuming or it can be a magical learning moment that captures the students’ minds and has them draw connections between the content of their learning and the context of the world. Come join Drea of the MiSTEM Network to see how fun STEM can be!
In this session, participants will engage in a digital style of PD developed by the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP) which will focus on decision-making in real-life and everyday situations that occur in a school building. From classroom behaviors to legal requirements, these lessons utilize dynamic multi-media presentations and gamification style learning while having learners reflect on current practices and strategies for improvement. Participants attending this session will jump into a simulation facilitated by Ryan Cayce of MASSP. Current administrators or teacher leaders considering administration are encouraged to check it out!
In this fast paced session participants will learn about 21 FREE engaging tools for the upcoming school year. Learn tips and tricks for all grade levels and subject matters!
How do you organize your course? By week, by unit, by chapter? Brightspace is flexible enough to meet the needs of however you want to organize your space. In this session, you will see some examples of how teachers have organized their Brightspace workspaces, hear about best practices for when and how to use HTML pages (it’s not scary), and have ample time for a Q&A with a classroom teacher who has tried multiple methods of organization.
