2. Google Forms - The "New" Google Forms, Plus Self-Correcting Tests and Quizzes

Program: Standards & Instructional Practice

Audience: Teachers

Dates: On-Going (Ends May 24, 2017)

New
Session designed for those new to Google Forms or people needing a refresher. Learn the basics: Learn the “new” Google Forms, with all its added features. Use with students or colleagues. FORMS are easy to construct, and are designed using the content and information pertinent to your subject area. Respondents fill out FORMS online, and Google “instantly” places the answers in a spreadsheet and creates a colored chart, summarizing the respondents’ answers. The spreadsheet can be sorted for easy viewing, and the colored chart allows for quick and easy reading. Insert different kinds of questions. Add images, videos, and sections. Use images as part of the question, or as distracters. Insert complex math expressions and graphs. Use for quizzes, how-to steps, collecting assignments, data collection, science experiments, math reviews, and more. Create “self-correcting” Forms for tests and quizzes. Features include the ability to assign points to each question, creating answer keys, and deciding whether to give students immediate feedback when they complete the tests (without the need for email), or emailing students their grades at a later date, after everyone has taken the test. Teachers can view class summaries with mean, median, and range of points for each test. They can add links to resources, within each question, for students to use when they get their test results. For answers students had incorrect, they can be directed to additional help. Teachers can also give individual feedback to students, with private comments. And, they can “hand score” individual questions for specific students, such as special needs students. Add-Ons can be used to enhance what can be done - automatically turn Forms off by date and time (or number of responses), eliminate choices as students make selections, etc. Instructor Carol LaRow – authorized Google Education Trainer, Google Innovator, Google Certified Teacher, Google Apps For Education Regional Leader, East Coast

6. Greater Capital Region Project Based Learning Institute

Program: Project Based Learning

Audience: Teachers, Administrators and instructional support staff

Dates: 7/31/2017 to 8/4/2017

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a lot more than "doing projects." This five-day workshop will provide an opportunity to explore how projects can become the driving force behind the delivery of your entire curriculum instead of just an end of unit assessment. PBL can help make our classrooms more relevant and rigorous while teaching crucial skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication! Participants will have opportunities to experience part of a PBL unit, work to begin designing their own standards-aligned units, and explore how to use Google applications and other free software to manage the process. Teachers who are new to PBL will gain a strong enough foundation to begin integrating projects into their work this year, while experienced teachers will be able to explore new subtleties and take their work to the next level. Individuals may submit personal checks to HFM BOCES if Distict or BOCES is not paying. Otherwise, Districts or Local BOCES will be billed by HFM BOCES.
