Google Workshop for the Common Core

I'm excited to announce that I will be teaching a seminar for CUE on February 1, 2014 in the city of Ontario.  My Google Workshop for the Common Core focuses on meeting the literacy and technology standards of CCSS.

Registration is now open at this link.  Below is a description of my workshop on CUE's website.

Location: Ontario Christian School
1907 S. Euclid Avenue, Ontario, CA 91762

Brought to you by Computer-Using Educators (CUE), producer of the nationally acclaimed "Google Teacher Academy"

Go Google to create an academically rigorous curriculum and prepare students for the Common Core. Use Google Apps to investigate, collaborate, create, and publish. This workshop addresses the literacy and technology standards required by CCSS. Educators will learn strategies and technology tools that prepare them for the pedagogical shifts required by the new standards. This is a hands-on, "Make-and-Take" seminar where teachers will practice and apply newly acquired skills. Empower and motivate students to become critical thinkers, imaginative creators, and digital leaders. Help them achieve beyond their expectations and leave with inspiring ideas that you can implement in your classroom.

This workshop is taught by a Google Certified Teacher. Requirement: participants must bring their own WiFi-enabled laptops. A hand-held device, like a smartphone or iPod touch, is recommended for the creation of a video-based project. 


  1. Seems like an awesome event. I'm slated to go to CUE in March to represent my school. I don't think they'll splurge on two events. I hope you can make some resources available afterwards. Thanks for all you do for the education and edtech communities.

  2. Hi Andy,

    This is a hands-on workshop, which is very different from the one-hour, presentation-style sessions offered at the Annual CUE Conference.

    In my seminar, participants will be learning how to use Google Apps through active participation and designing their own lessons that are personalized for their classrooms. I will be sharing how I use Google Apps to design an engaging and academically rigorous classroom, but the actual resource will be created by the teachers themselves with my guidance and support.

    Glad to know that you'll be representing your school at CUE. Hope we run into each other! :)
