The International School of Tanganyika in cooperation with AppsEvents is proud to be hosting the 2016 East Africa Google for Education Summit on February 6 - 7, 2016 (Saturday and Sunday) with the Google EDU certification preparation bootcamp being offered as a whole day pre-summit course on Friday.
The summit is a fantastic learning event to support classroom teachers, school leaders and school IT staff on leveraging Google Apps for Education tools to enhance and support 21st century learning.
Check out some of the exciting things you can look forward to during the 2-day summit.
Customize your summit experience
according to your experience or job role!
All AppsEvents summits have some specific learning pathways that goes beyond Google Apps for attendees who want to take deeper dives into specific subjects or job roles. Remember though that all sessions are ‘open access’ so attendees can choose individual sessions depending on their areas of interest and many choose last minute depending on the conversations they have on the day.
Do you feel that you need more time to explore specific tools? Start your day on the right foot with our focused beginner/intermediate sessions. We have sessions on the core Google Apps Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, and Drawings as well as an introductory course on managing your class on Google Classroom.
Ready to level up? Learn how you can bring the outside worldwide to your classroom and take your students to a virtual field trip with Google or check out how to run a paperless classroom using Google Drive!
For school managers and anyone in a leadership position, we are delighted to be offering AppsEvents Google for School Leaders strand with introduction on 'Future Ready Schools' to be spearheaded by AppsEvents Team Director, Dan Taylor. Learn more

We are also bringing AppsEvents Certified Admin (ACA) Level 1 as a regular summit session. This entry level certification is focused on getting educators with basic or no admin experience to ‘level up’ and be able to administer a live Google Apps Domain.
