GOING GOOGLE

Facilitated by Cory Pavicich, Academic Technology Consultant, Google Certified Teacher, Trainer

The University of Colorado at Boulder is Going Google! What does this mean? How will it impact teaching and learning at CU-Boulder? Come learn more with Cory Pavicich, one of fewer than twenty rotating professionals invited by Google to regularly present at the prestigious Google Teacher Academy, and a leader in the CU-Boulder Google project. Most k-12 school districts in the Denver area are using Google Apps for Education, providing their students with access to Google productivity tools as early as primary school. Students coming to the University of Colorado at Boulder in the next five years may never have opened Microsoft Word, but will be familiar with sharing, collaborating, and publishing with Google tools. Are you ready?

Participants will receive a status update on the Google Apps project, learn about what tools are available, and hear about best practices for using Google Apps in the higher education classroom. While the conversation will focus on the core Google suite, including Docs/Drive, Sites, Calendar and Gmail, this conversation will also look forward to the exciting social and video conferencing options offered in Google+.

The Technology Enhanced Learning Forums are designed and provided for our instructional faculty members. If you plan to participate in a symposium conducted by a presenter whose college is different from your own, please be prepared to adapt the recommended teaching tools to the needs of your own discipline.

Thursday January 31, 3:30 – 4:30 pm

This event will be held in ATLAS 200
