Tech Tools - Together They Are Stronger
Limited Capacity seats available

Prerequisite:
Because this session involves working with Google Forms, Google Sheets, and Google Slides, it is best of participants have a basic foundation in working with these apps. No pre-knowledge of Google Sheet formulas is required. 

Description:
This session will introduce a research project that allows students to use Google Forms, Google Sheets, and Google Slides to participate in data collection, organization, and presentation. The example project shown will be an electronic reading log that tracks students' reading lives, including academic, personal, and service reading, and then allows them to share their findings in an academic presentation. The project idea, however, can be adapted to other subjects as content teachers see fit and generally promotes students' ownership of their learning and comfort with technology.

Objectives:
Participants will... - understand the ways Google can facilitate students' participation in research. - see how various Google apps can be used together harmoniously and receive copies of all presented materials, including copies of Google Forms, Google Sheets, and Google Slides. - experiment with their own Google Form, Google Sheet, and Google Slide so that their own students can do data collection and presentation. - be offered free time for more advanced users of Google and step-by-step whole-class instructions for intermediate users.
