This unique professional development event for educational leaders offers hands-on experience with Chromebooks, educational uses for Google Apps (and Chrome Web Apps), and a full spectrum of solutions for Google Apps and Chromebooks in Schools - all in a spectacular location.
Discover the core magic of Google Docs and how it can transform the way students and educators collaborate. Experience the power of Forms coupled with Apps scripting. See the power of Google Sites as a multimedia web publishing platform for classrooms, online courses, or student portfolios. Integrate powerful research tools, including Google Books, YouTube for Schools, and even discussion forums with Google Groups. Optimize your email experience with Gmail. Easily automate critical functions with filters and labels.
Experiment with Chrome extensions and web apps to customize a browser for learning. Edit images and audio with Aviary, edit video with Stupeflix, and optimize your workflow with simple tools including text expanders and clipboard buffers.
Understand the built in security features of a Chromebook... and see how easy it is to manage a fleet of chromebooks, even with multiple users in different organizational units. Explore third party solutions, including a teacher dashboard for Google Apps, browser-based HTML5 access to a Windows Desktop, fully featured online courses, and much more. Learn about "even more" powerful and free tools available from Google. Hands-on activities ensure you’ll have the opportunity to experience the power of these tools first hand.
