St Christopher’s School to host the Google Summit

St Christopher’s School to host the Google Summit of Learning 2017 – 7 & 8 April

2017 is set to be another exciting year for education. The role of Ed-Tech (Education Technology) is becoming increasingly pivotal in the re-design of our education system, and ensuring that we equip our students to be ‘future-ready.’ That’s not to say that apps, technology and devices will ever replace great teachers but when these tools are combined with a sound pedagogical approach, it creates powerful opportunities that make learning authentic and relevant.

After the success of the event last year, St Christopher’s is looking forward to welcoming educators from a wide range of backgrounds (Schools, Universities and other training professionals are all welcome) back to the Google Apps for Education Summit again in 2017. It is not uncommon to find teachers who fear technology or struggle to see how they can adopt this within their practice. All good teachers have the desire to improve but they need time and guidance (from fellow educators) so they can start to engage with this new and exciting Ed-Tech era.

The Summit Experience involves two days of inspiring keynote speakers, personalised hands-on breakout sessions and a high-energy demo slam to empower teachers and leaders in the digital age. The event is led by Educators, not by salespeople, who are willing to share excellent pedagogical practice, supported by technology. Delegates can choose from compelling sessions featuring G-Suite for Education (Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Drawings, YouTube, Classroom, Maps and more) as well as sessions that go beyond the tools that feature cutting edge best practices in educational technology and great teaching! Connect with world class presentations by passionate and fun speakers – most of them Google Certified Teachers, Google Education Trainers and Google Innovators. They’ll share their passion and expertise on topics like Project Based Learning (PBL), Digital Literacy, Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), Maths, Digital Citizenship, Assistive Technology and much more!

This opportunity is open to all educators across the region as it will cover a wide variety of tools which can be adapted depending on the learning environment.
