Topic:   Parent Communication through Google Apps

Presenter:  Lisa Wallin

Google Classroom has recently updated a new feature to send automatic parent emails. The emails are a summary of the students completed work, missing work, and upcoming work. This PD will include a time effective way of collecting parent emails through Google Forms and then a quick input into Google Classroom. We will also discuss additional methods of communicating with parents and students through the use of Google Forms and Google Calendar: appointments. If you have already obtained parent emails, please bring them with you.

Topic: Google Classroom

Presenter: Lisa Wallin

This professional development will provide you with an introduction and the methods needed for daily Google Classroom use. Google Classroom is (to me) the easiest, and most effective way to maintain a virtual classroom with your students. It can allow you to transition to a paperless, or almost paperless classroom, while keeping an organized online classroom.

Topic: Google Forms and Grading with Google Forms

Presenter:  Lisa Wallin

Google Forms are probably the most unused tool for collecting information in schools. They are a quick way to obtain data, contact information, sign in/out logs, parent communication, etc. In addition, they can be used as online quizzes, formative assessments, and even tests (you can even set them to automatically grade your students' work!)
