Share Paper: Google Applications for Teacher Educators

  1. Chris Penny, West Chester University of Pennsylvania, United States

Abstract: This hands-on bring your own laptop workshop will allow participants to explore the full power of Google applications as educational tools. Many of these applications are web based, make full use of collaborative environments and engage learners in unique ways. While the array of Google tools continues to grow, the workshop presenter will focus on a tested set of applications that will enable teacher educators to realize the potential of these widely accessible and free tools. No prior experience working with Google applications is necessary, but all participants should create a free Google account prior to the workshop.
