3rd Annual EdTechTeam LV Summit held this past weekend on campus The two day event featured Google Apps for Education

Participants from all over the country and Canada attended the third annual EdTechTeam Las Vegas Summit featuring Google Apps for Education on campus from Jan. 30-31.

“It was a very good, but intense two-day experience,” Spanish Instructor Mrs. Geri Barnish said. “My brain felt like it was about ready to explode from all the information that I learned. I felt like we definitely needed more hands-on practice with the information.”

The two day conference engaged teachers and faculty in workshops that focused on integrating Google Apps for Education that could be immediately put to use in the classroom.

“We were able to learn about creating a Google Classroom and setting up a Google Voice by Google Educators,” Barnish said. “We learned how to apply these apps in the classroom so that we could become a more tech savvy school.”

Conference attendees had the opportunity to select the workshop sessions to participate in. Registration for the event began at 7:30 a.m. on Jan. 30-31 and the conference concluded at approximately 5:30 p.m. on both days.

“There were choices from different sessions throughout both of the days,” Assistant Principal Ms. Trish Taylor said. “I especially enjoyed my session because it was a fast and furious session that taught me applications I could use right away.”

In addition, all participants received a Certificate of Participation by completing the online form. Google for Education Certified Innovators, trainers and practicing administrators facilitated the program.

I found it very informative because there were a lot of things I learned, even though I know how to use Google,” Web Design Program Leader (PL) Ms. Cindi Chang said. “There were a lot of apps and extensions I didn’t know about.”
