Google Classroom and Google Apps for Education – How I Use Them Every Day in My Classroom
Two years ago, I started using Doogle docs in my classroom. Last year, I managed to migrate completely over to Google classroom, and have gone “paperless” in my lab. In this session I will show you how Google classroom works, but also a plethora of Google apps, Chrome extensions, and websites that I use regularly to make my classroom accessible, fun, and engaging for all of my students. Come bring your laptop or tablet if you have one.

Cross-curricular Competencies: How to develop student competencies using environmental and energy education
This workshop will explore how authentic energy and environmental education learning experiences can be used to develop the competencies of an engaged thinker, and ethical citizen with an entrepreneurial spirit. We will use a few classroom learning stories to explore authentic learning that delivers on the cross-curricular competencies. We’ll engage in activities to help you identify ways you’re delivering on the cross-curricular competencies. We’ll also use the Curriculum for a Sustainable Future learning outcomes to help you expand your current curriculum and explore community resources to help you use environmental and energy education to develop your students’ competencies.
