Leveraging Google Apps to Foster Student Inquiry with HyperDocs & Interactive Digital Notebooks

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A traditional perspective and approach toward the core Google Apps for Education tools of Google Docs and Google Slides is to have students write papers and create presentations.  However, there is immense potential in both of these tools to create rich, inquiry focused and student-centric working environments by simply changing the perspective on the role of the tool.  By moving beyond simply digitizing work and replacing paper with Google Apps for Education, the kind of work students can create and the method by which they explore ideas can move beyond linear text in a digital form.   This session will explore the potential to transform Google Docs into a dynamic student work environment through the combination of text, images, video, linked collaborative work-spaces and digital organization.  Further, we will explore the capacity to transform Google Slides into a student digital workspace and notebook that includes pre-populated instructional content, independent and collaborative workspaces that provide structure for students while exploring content within their Digital Notebook.  Attendees in this session will walk away with a creative approach to leveraging the two core Google Apps for Education tools (Docs and Slides) as well as concrete examples and two digital templates to begin the process of integrating these ideas into their classroom or school.
