This year I am proud to once again coordinate the Michigan Google Education Summit (miGoogle) being held at Brighton High School on November 4-5, 2013.
Day one, November 4, features full and half day workshops led by a stellar line-up of educators who I consider to be some of the top technology integrators in the state of Michigan:
- Gary Abud: Project Based Learning (PBL) and Google Apps for Education
- Lori Ferrington: Apps Scripts for Education
- Andrew Steinman: Google on the iPad
- Kit Hard: Getting Started with Google Drive
- Dan Spencer: Flip your Classroom with Google
- John Sowash: Google Certified Trainer Bootcamp
For more information on any of the above sessions, click here.
Day two of the summit, November 5, features a traditional conference format including a keynote and over 50 breakout sessions covering top Google products including Maps, YouTube, Blogger, Drive, Google+, Flubaroo, and much more.
My goal and vision for the miGoogle summit is that it be a place to showcase the tremendous talent in the state of Michigan. Instead of bringing in speakers from around the country, I would love to see local educators share how they have integrated various Google tools and technologies into their classroom in meaningful ways that impact student achievement.
Teachers tend to be a humble group. Many of you are doing amazing things in your classroom but you don't give yourself enough credit! "But everything I do is easy...simple....obvious." Those are common excuses I hear from teachers when I tell them they should present at a conference. You have something to share, something to show! You would be amazed how many other teachers would benefit from learning about your unique lesson or approach to technology! Don't underestimate yourself!
Consider yourself officially invited to lead a 50 min. breakout session at the 2013 miGoogle conference! As a thank you, you will receive complementary admission to the conference, access to the speakers lounge filled with snacks and cool people, and some Google swag!
The call for presenters is open through August 1. Click here to review the details and submit your proposal! You have something to share!
For those interested in attending the conference, please add you name to this form to be notified as soon as registration officially opens (early July). Conference capacity is 600 and is expected to sell out.
