Pick a curriculum unit….any unit. Now, “googlify” it by spending the next 4 weeks in an online workshop transforming this existing unit of study into a digitally dynamic, interactive and collaborative learning experience for your students based upon the integration of a variety of Google tools. Explore apps, extensions and basic Google resources that can be combined with your existing curriculum material to create a unit of study that will be interesting, fun, and accessible to all students.
Each session will include a short reading, collaborative discussion and an exploration of two or more Google tools that will be applied to a facet of your unit of study. Also, as part of each session, participants will be asked to contribute to a comprehensive and collaborative collection of lesson plans and ideas that will be shared amongst the group.
