Last week, educators from five states across America gathered at Montour High School, in partnership with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit with support from PAECT and PASCD, for the 2nd Annual EdTechTeam Pennsylvania Google for Educators Summit. This year’s summit was a high intensity two-day event of inspiring keynote speakers by Tracy Prudy and Kern Kelley, empowering hands-on breakout sessions and fun activities including a high-energy demo slam.
Attendees chose from compelling sessions about all the Apps in the G Suite for Education (Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Drawings, YouTube, Classroom, Maps and more) as well as sessions that go beyond the tools that feature cutting edge best practices in educational technology and great teaching.
The Summit included a variety of breakout sessions throughout the day. Some of the many sessions offered were:
- Google Classroom: Moving Up STREAM
- Shine up your Chrome
- Coding in the Classroom
- The New Google Sites
- G Suite and PBL – The perfect learning team
- Digital Photography Workflow
- Advanced Google Forms and Data Analysis
- Animation Creation with Presentation
- Digital Portfolios using Google Tools
- YouTube in the Classroom
Overall, the summit exceeded all expectations. A huge thank you to the EdTechTeam Inc. presenters Tracy Prudy, Kern Kelley and Tracy Arner for their hard work and commitment to education. We look forward to the 3rd Annual summit returning next year. To learn more about the summit, please visit edtechteam.com.
