Google Summit Zurich

Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 1.41.38 PM
I spent my weekend at the Google Summit at the Inter-Community School. It was a great opportunity for me to meet the educators in the region and also a chance to present two workshops. On Saturday I delivered a workshop about Google Projects, finding more about what Google is all about, not only a search engine or apps. But a company which invests in projects to improve education and our lives. Please check put my presentation below and find more about the projects:)

My second workshop was about Fostering Digital Citizenship in K-12 Environments. During my workshop we dug into the nine elements of Digital Citizenship and had fun with the Digital Citizenship Metaphor Show down and the Game Show. The attendees won special prizes at the end:)

I had the chance to attend many great presentations and workshops by colleagues.

Mark Dilworth @giesummit #zurich

Mark Dilworth‘s presentation ‘Adopting Google Apps: Strategies for Change’. He gave us tips on how to make the chamge happen in a school giving his experience at ZIS.

Katie Williams @giesummit #zurich

Katie Williams’ workshop about Integrating Google Analytics for Students’ Websites was great. Now I can see who you are, where you are visiting my site from and even what kind of device you use. Thank you Google Analytics:)

Copil Bogdan showed us how to use Goo Create for 3D modelling. Awesome tool, definitely will use and create some 3D designs, soon. Follow me:)

Overall, I had a great weekend, learning, sharing and networking! What would I want more?:)

Digital Citizenship Week – Behaviour

Third day of Digital Citizenship Week started with a session in Google Sites in 5W. As a part of their exhibition presentation, they would like to learn how to build a website. WE have started with the basic structure of building a site. When it came to uploading media on the site, we had a discussion of fair use of creative material. We watched a video by Creative commons.org  about copyright. Students are keen to work with ccsearch building their websites.


Next door to 5W, students of 5B were skyping with grade 6 students from NIST in Thailand. Their discussions were about being a good digital Citizen. Please have a look at the below  link  for a reflection blog post by their teacher. http://blogs.nist.ac.th/6gd/2013/02/04/being-a-digital-citizen-skyping-with-5b-in-yokohama/. 5B students also commented about digital citizenship, on their blog since they were communicating with them. The NIST blog holds all the students’ reflections–YIS and NIST. Students are trying to get commenting going on both of our blogs as much as possible.

3L worked on how to build Pages documents today. When they came across with the challenge of using photos from the internet, they had a look at the creative commons website, watched the video and started using the ccsearch site.
