What does it mean to be “Designed for Digital”? A talk and workshop on digital educational design for transforming schools is the next natural stage now that devices and tons of software services are on the scene.

From understanding where tech and culture are headed, to how curriculum crosses with the experience of school space, teacher personalization and the new transparency imperative – this event is one of a kind.

Attend to participate in other tech and curriculum topics, hear panels, join discussion learning groups, and network at the virtual top golf reception and the annual Digital Transition Survey & Awards dinner.

This exclusive gathering of leaders is the only national event delivering deep context on education’s shift to digital. The event is known for exceptional and unconventional presentations by leaders at every station in Education.

Formative Assessment With Google Forms

Google Forms serve as a digital means for collecting all kinds of data and processing it in a way that makes it easier to measure growth, change, etc… The goal of this course is to facilitate the use of these tools to help promote success for teachers, and most importantly students. This course is designed to take you through the process of creating several different types of forms, collecting results, and manipulating data into usable reports. The course will consist of online modules based on topics.

Participants taking the course for credit will be required to complete all modules. This course is intended for multiple audiences.
