We will look at how we can use Google scripts to automate assessment and assign work to students.

Google Advanced search tips to help teachers and students with their research
Rather than asking your students to mine the Internet looking for information, show them how to get to the information using effective search strategies. We will take a tour of the tools that Google has developed to help you and your students focus on synthesizing the information you’ve found rather than spending precious classroom time trying to find it. Explore how to use Google’s latest search techniques with your students and develop strategies to help your students do meaningful queries rather than just hunt for data.

Photo editing, animation and film editing in Google Drive and Youtube
Many people think that Chromebooks and Google Drive do not have the same capability as some other products on the market today e.g. MACBooks in this session you will learn about some third party Google Drive Apps which give you powerful capabilities like photo editing, animation, movie editing and the good news is they are all free. These tools will help you to flip your classroom.
