Facilitating a deeper learning experience using online interactions can be challenging unless individuals have significant programming skills and technical resources. Fortunately, Google provides some free, online tools that make it possible to create meaningful online materials without programming, using point and click interfaces and standardized web tools. In this session, we will talk about the differences between shallow and deep learning environments and step through an interactive example on how to facilitate deep thinking and meaningful student interactions using Google Sites and Google Docs. Finally, we will discuss how you can integrate this environment into classroom activities. By the end of the session, you should have concrete ideas about how facilitate deep, Web-based learning environments using free online tools.

Class too big? Get Googled.
Because I had to teach 2 digital design classes with 40 students each this year, I had to come up with a solution on how to drive the class effectively in which my students could learn from my tutorials at their own pace, find resources, have their parents enjoy their work on blogs, receive emails from me (both parents and students), find resources and take quizzes on line, and still have my one on one interaction in class. The answer was google (google blogger, google gmail, youtube, google calendar, google documents, google picnik, google picasa and more. The platform I work on is Mac and my students are required to learn CS5 software, Final Cut, and all of the software that comes with a Mac. This is for Salt Lake Concurrent Enrollment and high school Art credit. I'm sure this style of teaching could work for any subject.

Publishing Your Own Textbook is Easy
Imagine you and your students actually becoming published authors! With Lulu.com you or your students can publish paperbacks, hardbacks, textbooks, presentations, brochures, comic books, books of artwork or photography, calendars, yearbooks, portfolios, posters, and more, in both black-and-white and color. You can also publish digital media like ebooks, images, music, CDs, videos, fonts, and more. It is great for publishing your own book or for a student or class project. The publication can be publicly sold online for a profit (set your own royalty) or for no profit (only the printing cost). Or you can keep it private and get only a single copy for yourself or your class. The three presenters from Payson High School have taken different approaches. David Rockwood privately self-published a sport psychology book that is being used all across the nation. Brian Blake took an open source biology textbook, edited and customized it to fit his own class’ needs, and published it; It is being used by the Nebo School District. Linda Walter co-wrote a chemistry textbook to be used by her own classes, which is also being used by the Nebo School District.

The Dummies Guide to Designing and Teaching Hybrid Teaching Courses
Hybrid courses couple technology with innovative teaching practices to increase flexibility and engagement. Hybrids transform one or more face-to-face sessions into online experiences, reducing physical seat time without diminishing educational outcomes.

Because hybrid courses require significant re-thinking of teaching practices and understanding of new technology, this workshop will help you design your next hybrid course.

In Hybrid courses, the pedagogical focus shifts more responsibility to students, who do work online, either in self-paced activities (e.g., use of courseware for announcements, quizzes, asynchronous discussion boards) or small groups (e.g., discussions, chats/forums, projects/assignments).

Collaborative Writing and Research Using Google Docs
Do you want students to work together on a project or just share ideas in real-time? Can you provide a way for multiple students to create, revise, and edit content all at the same time? Ever have trouble where a student takes a writing assignment home and never brings it back? Or can you picture the student that you don't trust to take the assignment home in the first place?

Google Docs offers a free solution that engages all students to collaborate together to share ideas and create content together. All you need is a Gmail account to get started.

Reviewing the new Common Core, I noticed that students in elementary grades are now required to create content online. This last summer I started to create and post some content myself and found it to be quite exciting. I tried to bring this excitement into my classroom by using Google Docs and also Wikispaces. We found that Wikispaces is a great place to publish the work and that Google Docs is better for the prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and overall collaborative approach.

My intent is to show teachers how to create and share documents in Google Docs as well as how students can go do research together or go through the writing process. Teachers will see the power of multiple students accessing the same document at home or at school to complete a project. Of course, this power extends beyond writing and the elementary grades.

How to Effectively Create Google Forms
With Google Docs, you can quickly create a form or survey, send it to students, parents, teachers, or staff, and keep track of the answers in one spreadsheet.

Since forms are filled out online, there’s no need to enter in results manually. Responses are collected and displayed immediately in a corresponding Google Docs spreadsheet which allows you to sort, analyze, and visualize the information.

You can send forms to anyone - even those outside of your school Apps domain. Respondants can access the form via email, a published webpage, or embedded on a site.

Forms also generates an automatic summary with charts, graphs, and statistics about your form responses and can notify you when new responses are submitted.
