Ed Tech Workshops - Week of 9/16/13

My first round of ed tech workshops will launch next week.  Below are the titles of the sessions along with times, locations and a description of the workshop.  If any of my Cheshire colleagues are interested in attending, please sign-up via ProTraxx.

Organize Your Drive -

9/17/2013 - Chapman PD Room - 11:45 am - 1:45 pm (with lab time)

9/18/2013 - DMS Computer Lab - 11:45 am - 1:45 pm (with lab time) and 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Learn how to enhance the organization of your own digital documents in Google Drive as well as your class assignments.  Participants will be able to organize their Drive account using folders and will also learn how Drive will allow assignments to be shared with/received from students.  This workshop will specifically address the process in which a teacher can efficiently share documents with students and collect assignments via Google Drive.


Doctopus and Goobric...You’ve got to see this to believe this! -

9/19/2013 - DMS Computer Lab - 11:45 am - 1:45 pm (with lab time) and 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm

Participants will get the chance to explore a Google Drive script that gives teachers the ability to auto-generate, pre-share, and manage grading and feedback on templated Docs for group and individual projects.  This script is a feature of Google Drive that could greatly enhance the use of Google Drive/Docs with your students and the feedback that you provide.  You’ve got to see this in action!

  1. I used Doctopus to share an assignment with my four sixth grade classes at Norton School. The students completed the assignment during class and at home if necessary. Today they started their presentations.

    Using Goobric, I was able to grade the written assignment before the presentations making it very easy to grade the presentations "on the spot." I went back into the student documents, added the presentation grade and I am finished. The grades are conveniently listed on the spreadsheet so I am not going back and forth between my grade book, paper rubrics, and online projects.
