Making Thinking Visible with Google Slides
We all know how to create presentations with Google Slides, but what if I told you that Slides can be used for so much more? This session will introduce participants to some of the unique features of Slides that engage students and unlock their thinking. Google Slides is first and foremost thought of as a presentation tool, but by thinking creatively teachers can engage students and unlock their thinking. Create interactive activities that students can manipulate, analyze images, build apps, compose interactive stories and poetry, empower students through digital storytelling all while engaging students in a collaborative environment. This session will begin with participants contributing to Google Slides activities that will be introduced during the session. These activities will be followed by a discussion of the alternative uses of Slides with supplemental resources provided by the presenter. Participants will brainstorm uses and create an activity to use in their classroom. Please bring your laptop!

Design Thinking with Hyperdocs
Navigating project teams through the Design Thinking Process can have an array of organizational challenges. By utilizing Hyperdocs, teachers can create an environment for students that assist them in understanding and learning the process of design thinking. Hyperdocs provide the perfect organizational structure for navigating students through the stages of the design thinking process and project-based learning while also creating a collaborative environment for project teams. Teachers can structure the Hyperdocs to facilitate the development of group norms, team member roles, daily task assignments and task plans for future work sessions, research, brainstorming, project development, and iteration. Additionally, students can document their process via images, video and other multimedia. The Hyperdocs format is also flexible enough to be utilized in most G-Suite apps, including Slides, Sites, and Forms. Please bring your laptop!
