Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Computer-Using Educators (CUE) Inc. is thrilled to announce the Google in Education West Coast Summit to take place March 22-23, 2014, immediately following the Annual CUE Conference in Palm Springs, California. The Summit’s timeframe was chosen specifically so that Annual Conference-goers could both maximize their investment and minimize travel-related expenses. In fact, Annual CUE Conference attendees receive a significantly discounted rate as shown below.
A Google in Education Summit is “an open, one- to two-day event primarily focused on Google Apps for Education but can also cover additional Google products like Google Earth, YouTube for Schools, Google Search, etc. These are events organized by members of the Google Apps for Education community for members of the community,” according to the Google in Education Community Events website. As campuses across the globe adopt Google solutions to support student learning, powerful but affordable professional development is essential. CUE’s Summit will provide two keynotes and dozens of sessions with hands-on activities led by Google Certified Teachers and Google Apps Certified Trainers, including instructional strategies tied to the new Common Core State Standards. All attendees will be invited 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.
“We are so excited to bring educators this amazing opportunity,” said Danny Silva, CUE’s Professional Learning Coordinator. “Attendees will walk away from this event with the knowledge and resources to leverage Google tools to unleash both teacher and student achievement and motivation. We feel this is a great way to cap off their Conference weekend.”
The Google in Education Summit is open to teachers, administrators, tech directors, library media specialists, tech support staff, CTOs, and anyone who is interested in finding out how to leverage Google Apps for Education to support student learning. Attendees to both the Conference and the Summit will return to their schools and classrooms armed with amazing new tools and resources to reach even more students.
Registration to attend the Summit is now open, limited to only 500. For those attending both the Annual CUE Conference and the Summit, you will be required to show your Conference badge to secure the reduced rate.
