Registration Dateline: Friday 10th April 2015
Contact Person: chris_r@harrowschool.ac.th

Term 3 Technology Integration JAWS

Topic: Technology Integration
Focus: Sharing models of good practice with a view to developing a working policy for Schools

The job-alike workshop was created as a format to allow group of like-minded professionals to create opportunities for curriculum-based CPD that relies on the skills and knowledge of the delegates themselves rather than relying on expensive key note speakers.
These workshops are an opportunity for you to share good practice and co-construct new knowledge with other FOBISIA teachers. This is a professional event. Registered participants are required to contribute to the agenda and to contribute to the presentations.

The impact of technology on education has been transformational in many of our Schools. With many seeking to fully leverage the potential of these tools there has arisen a need for teachers to explore how technology can be fully utilized to enhance and transform teaching and learning.
This JAWS will seek to work collaboratively to develop how Technology Integration actually looks in Schools. With a focus on the Why? How? And What?. Participants will work collaboratively to develop systems, strategies and policies which will work for their particular organisation.

DAY 1

Keynote: Dealing with change and the Pedagogical approach to Technology in Education
Technology is changing the way we learn and teach, dealing with these changes can sometimes be difficult. The keynote will go through the new technologies that are having an impact on our lives and will come up with solutions of how we can enhance and transform the learning experiences for our students.
What is changing? Types of technology that are having an impact on our daily life.
Why education needs to change? The difference between digital immigrants and natives.
How we can use technology to enhance teaching and learning? Using the SMAR model with Google Apps to help teachers to plan technology integration and flip their classroom
Chrome Apps and Extensions to improve your productivity
Chrome extensions and Drive Apps are key functions for making your work life productive and for getting students to create work which would not be possible without this kind of technology. This workshop will look at many different extensions and apps which you probably thought did not exist within the Google Apps range. It will cover things like screenshots, making ebooks, time savers, monitoring students work and giving feedback to students.

The Power of Google Forms For Teachers
In this hands-on session, we will create a Google form from scratch as well as look at how one can use Google forms in the day-to-day operations of a school. We will visit an educational portal that has Google form templates and tutorials that have been designed by other educators to help save us all time. 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.

DAY 2

Google+, Hangouts, Communities and Events for Educators
Google+ is the fastest growing social network on the planet. It is now the second biggest social network and has 540 million active users in just 2 years. Google+ is fast becoming a core Google App and has great potential for education and is a leading force for teachers professional development. In this workshop we will show you how to setup your account and how to use all the key features. We will also show how to use communities to build a class learning network with your students and how to use hangouts so you can flip your classroom.
