Session 1: 
Google Forms for Surveys, Quizzes, and More!
Skill Level: Beginner
Audience: All Audiences

Google Forms can be a phenomenal way to gather formative assessments and make informed, in-the-moment instructional decisions so that you can lead your students into learning. They're also a great way for you to connect with your students and gather meaningful feedback about your instruction. 

Forget SurveyMonkey! Forms can also be incredibly useful for administrators and staff members looking to get feedback from their staff and parents. 

No previous experience with Forms is required. Come as a beginner, get some hands-on experience, and leave an expert!

Session 2: 
Edmodo + GAFE = Personalized Learning
Skill Level: Intermediate
Audience: Teachers

With school districts all around the world going Google for Education, many teachers are switching from their previous LMS to Google Classroom. While there are a lot of benefits to using Classroom, GAFE can still be integrated easily with other platforms, such as Edmodo. Since Edmodo offers a number of robust features that Google Classroom does not, there are a number of student-centered reasons why teachers should consider using it! 

In this session, teachers will learn about how to integrate Edmodo and GAFE. A brief presentation about how Edmodo and GAFE can be used to facilitate project-based learning will be given, and teachers will leave with all the prerequisite skills needed to begin integrating Edmodo and GAFE in their classrooms.
