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.

Beginner

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 Google Sheets basics, Gmail, and Google Classroom. AppsEvents core team member Lee Webster will also be sharing his arsenal of Chrome Apps and Extensions you probably never knew existed to help you improve productivity.

Advanced

Ready to level up? Experience how assessments using Google Tools can enhance workflow and increase student participation with Wesley Przybylski’s “Surf Through your Assessments with GAFE” or learn how students can harness the power of Big Data and provide advanced data visualization with James Sayer’s session on Fusion Tables.

Leadership

For school managers and anyone in a leadership position, we are delighted to be offering the AppsEvents Google for School Leaders strand which is held over in three regular summit sessions spearheaded by Dan Taylor, AppsEvents Team Director. Learn more.
