URSA 2019

 

Playground: micro:bit – we have 20 micro:bits in our lending library. Let me know if you’d like to give them a try in your classroom (SEDC region only)

Google Jamboard – A Free and Collaborative Interactive Whiteboard for Any Device – Advance with the “>” symbol on the top of the Jam

  • Google Jamboard is a new tool in G Suite for Education that you may not be familiar with, but if you’ve ever wished you could have more than a couple of students working at your Interactive Whiteboard (a.k.a SMARTBoard) at the same time, Jamboard is for you! Draw and sketch ideas, add text with movable “sticky” notes, add any photos and images, even Drive documents – and your students can interact and add their ideas in real time, from just about any device you (or your students) have in your classroom. If you run out of space, you can add as many more frames as needed. And just like any other Google Doc, all edits are saved and can be shared with a few clicks.

Ultimate Google Demo Slam – Links to a Google Doc with all of the slam videos and info on the presenters

  • The Ultimate Demo Slam: Utah Google Certified Trainer Edition is an action-packed hour of pure G Suite excitement! The Google Certified Trainers in Utah will vie to become the Demo Slam master by presenting one Slam* each. Participants will watch, learn, discuss, and ultimately judge which Demo Slam will be deemed ultimate Google champion for 2019! *A Slam is a two-minute demonstration of the capacities of our favorite tools. All Slams will focus on using the G Suite tools to positively impact productivity, instruction, and student learning.
