|"How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse with Google" huddle|
Better late than never right?
I wrote two posts about the March 2015 Hawaii GAFE Summit: How about those Chrome Extensions! and The #FunFactor ＼(＾▽＾)／ at the Third Hawaii Google Summit!
And I promised a "What Did I Learn" article. It's #summertime #andthelivingiseasy. I'm finally getting around to it, and I'm making this post part of my #GR8Finds #ThisWeek. [ #twobirds ]
1. I got a lot out of Michael Morrison's presentation An Invitation to Inspiring Learning Spaces 4c's Learning Environments. I love that Michael added my answer to the question: "What Plant Should I Buy?" to his presentation. (Slide 49).
2. James Sanders' "How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse with Google" session demonstrated beautifully how to use theme-based activities to introduce Google Apps to students (and teachers).
James presented the complete session on Google's Education on Air on May 9:
Check out the Zombie Apocalypse project on James' Classroom in the Future website, complete with an escape plan template and top escape plans. You can submit one!
Hawaii educators +Mia Beatty, +Yvette Santos and +Nikki Kay submitted an escape plan that made the website. So very cool!
3. Along the same line of theme-based activities, the Iron Chef Google Challenge, patterned after the original at ISTE in 2013, was a rousing success!
