Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

You don't know what you don't know! There's a lot more to Google than what most people realize, and it goes far beyond the G Suite tools that many of us use everyday. There's a world of lesser-known tools that can help us engage students in new ways, create and design amazing projects, and some things that are just flat out cool!

Many of these lesser-known tools will help us better address the ISTE Standards for Students, break up with the mundane tasks that students see in every class, and help us meet the needs of all learners.

In this showcase session, I will demonstrate the lesser-known tools and give practical applications for the classroom, lesson ideas, how to manage big data, and sparks of creative thinking.

We will discuss ways to use these tools that align with purpose and the standards and learning goals so that they can help teachers transform their classrooms.
