Rock Star Teacher GWE: Dr. Mark Wagner & GCT Ken Shelton

GWE Details:


Search, learn, share! Brought to you by Computer Using Educators (CUE), the producers of the Google Teacher Academy, the nationally acclaimed Google Workshop for Educators (GWE) introduces participants to innovative ways Google tools can be used in education. In this special version of the workshop, three full days of fast-paced presentations and hands-on activities include experience with advanced search techniques, collaborative web-based applications, and inspirational instructional strategies. Google Certified Teachers share ways they've implemented tools such as Google Docs, Google Maps, Google Sites, and... even more. Participants who complete the event are given access to the Google Workshops for Educators Network (GWEN), an online community focused on supporting educators as they learn more about the power of Google to drive student learning.


Google Workshop for Educator evaluation results are overwhelming positive, and the comments participants leave speak volumes about the quality of the experience. These comments are typical of what participants say after every GWE:
