UWC Middle School Conference Workshop Goals

Here are the goals we want to accomplish in today's Workshop:

1. You should be able to leave the Workshop with Google Drive folder structure for your classes. Bringing class lists (preferably in spreadsheet form so we can copy and paste it) and your favorite digital device.

2. You will be able to send a custom email message from a spreadsheet.

Here is a brief outline of what I will be discussing:

  • Learn about Google Apps For Education (GAFE) Resources
    • The Templates I use
  • Examples of how I used GAFE to differentiate in my G6-9 math classes
    • Seat Problem
  • The power of using Google Spreadsheets
    • Create Random (or if you like not so Random) Group Allocations of different sizes
    • Custom Email Mail Merge using FormEmailer
  • gClassFolders2.0 is an amazing tool
    • Automatically setup Google Drive folders for each class
      • 3 types of folders created: All class view, All class edit, Individual folders
      • Differentiation with gClassFolders
  • Working Time!
  • My favorite resources
    • Script Resources
    • Google+ page
    • Blogs and Twitter
