European Google Apps for Education Summit

This past weekend I was lucky enough to present a session at the European Google Apps for Education Summit. 

I presented a beginner level session on getting started with Google Docs in the primary classroom.  It was just the basics of Google Docs with a bit about how I introduce it to students as well as ideas for how to use Docs. 

I was a bit worried when I first started that the session was too basic, but when teachers started asking me follow up questions I realized that for at least some in the room, it was exactly where it needed to be. 

I received good feedback when I finished from several teachers who thanked me, saying that they had never been shown the basics and they were glad that I did a session on it. Luckily for them it was the first session of the day as well so they were able to get off to a good start. 

The rest of the weekend was a great networking weekend for me. There was a large group from Munich who I had met at the ECIS Tech conference. It was nice to see people again, reconnect and share ideas. 

Overall it was a great weekend and as this is my third presenting session, it has encouraged me to apply for more of them in the future. I have had a great time doing them and I hope that teachers had a great time learning in them.
