Changing Yellows to Green: Google Sheets for Tracking Team Progress
Do you get lost in shared files and Team Drive folders?  Do you have trouble finding files or folders because you weren't the one who named them?  The presenter will demonstrate how to use a Team Drive and a Google sheet to see at a glance the progress of teams using colors: red, yellow, and green.  Red means the team has no evidence of progress.  Yellow means the team has a plan or brainstorm, and green means the team has data, a draft, or a final product.  The plan or product must be hyperlinked to the cell in the Google sheet for the color to be changed.  This allows an administrator or teacher to see at a glance the progress of all groups.  Hyperlinking means a single click allows viewing of the most recent version of the work product, without searching for file names or shared documents.  The Team Drive means everyone can see the files of others groups, so nothing is stored on one person's drive.  This is ideal for projects such as accreditation self studies or student progress on inquiry projects.

When we have an app for everything, it's hard not to let the apps drive the learning in the classroom. Apps are great, especially Google tools, but not a silver bullet for the classroom. It's what the STUDENTS DO with the apps and devices that matter. This session will focus on instructional strategies that can be used with Google tools to engage students and increase student learning!

This session, presented by two elementary teachers currently working in a school transitioning to the project-based learning model, will empower teachers to provide more choices for their students. Simple, yet effective, strategies will be discussed for both early and upper elementary classes. Real-life examples, including pictures and videos, and student voice from each classroom will be utilized. There will be time given to ask a student panel questions, as well as discussion amongst peers. Teachers should leave the session feeling as if they can start implementing choice right away, without feeling chaotic or losing control.

Train Like a Navy SEAL
When the military needed more Navy SEALs, but didn't want to lower their standards, they developed a mental-toughness program with the help of psychologists. SEAL candidates learned to develop essential skills, including: positive self talk, movement, breathing, gratitude and other SEL strategies to help students succeed.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL), or teaching the whole child is beginning to gain a more prominent foothold in education. For teachers, starting it in their classroom may seem daunting, even though they might understand the value and research behind it. What does SEL look like in the kindergarten classroom? In 8th grade? What about at the high school level? This session can provide ways for teachers of all levels to get started with the important work of SEL in their classrooms.
