I’m looking forward to the COABE Conference coming up March 30 in New Orleans. I’d love to hear what people are presenting on. This year I collaborated with my colleague, Lizelena Iglesias, to put together a Science and Technology half day preconference. The description is below.
Integrating Digital Skills: Using Google Slides in Science Instruction
Presenters: Nell Eckersley and Lizelena Iglesias
Science, Half-Day Preconference
Sunday, March 31st 8:30am-11:30am, Studio 3
Like PowerPoint, Google Slides has many applications in education and work. In this half-day preconference we are going to explore how Google Slides can be used in science instruction with a particular focus on representing cycles in science. Participants will develop and strengthen their own conceptual understanding of the Earth as a living system by exploring the connections among all parts of the system: air, water, land, and life. They will also learn and strengthen their skills in creating Google Slides by building their own Google Slides if/then stories. Bring your own laptop for the hands-on components of this preconference. This workshop is aimed at people with low level Google skills and some basic science knowledge. People with more advanced skills are welcome but should know that we are starting at the beginning. Participants should come with a Google account and the credentials to log into it.
