Thursday 14th September - 1pm and 4pm
Teachers fear assessments as much as students do, but that’s mainly because of all the marking that comes with it, as well as managing emotions in the classroom when children get stuck. What if we could make testing learning outcomes more fun, interactive
and engaging whilst giving teachers automated performance insights at a glance in Google Classroom? Coming exclusively to paid editions of Google Workspace, practice sets will be just what they need.
In this session we will show you all you need to know to create and run your own practice sets.
Introduction to Bard & Google Lens
Monday 18th September - 1pm and 4pm
Teachers can normally spot when students produce “work” which is not their own. With the development of AI, teachers still need to be one step ahead. Using AI tools such as bard teachers can develop vital skills for their students such as self checking,
proofreading on information they research. Also through using AI, save time writing emails, letters, assessment feedback and progress reports, as well as differentiate work whilst personalising your lessons. Join us for this informative session to develop
the use of AI in your practice.
Google Lens allows the use of devices available in the classroom to scan text, read aloud to students, identify objects for further learning and create augmented reality experience all from the comfort of your own classroom.
In this session we will show you all you need to know to start using AI in your classroom.
Interactive questions for YouTube videos
Tuesday 26th September - 1pm and 4pm
In this session we cover interactive questions directly in a YouTube Video, within Google classroom. Interactive questions are a great way to engage your students and keep them learning. They can be used to assess student understanding, provide feedback,
and encourage participation. If you’re looking for a way to engage your students and keep them learning, interactive questions are a great option, whilst also adding pace to your lessons along with personalised learning.
In this session we will show you all you need to know to start adding interactive questions into You tube videos which you can then instantly share with your Google Classroom as assignments for students to complete.

Google Smart Canvas: The future of collaboration in the classroom
Tuesday 10th October - 1pm and 4pm
Google Smart Canvas is a new suite of features that make it easier for people to collaborate in real time. It’s perfect for the classroom, where students and teachers need to be able to share ideas and work together on projects.
Do you spend a lot of time typing the same things over and over again in your Google Docs? If so, then Google custom building blocks are the perfect tool for you.
Custom building blocks are reusable snippets of text that you can save and insert into your documents. This can save you a lot of time, especially if you’re writing long documents or if you have to type the same information frequently.
Do you need to make decisions with your team or class? Google Docs voting can help you do it faster and easier.
With Google Docs voting, you can create polls and surveys that allow your team or class to vote on different options. This can be helpful for making decisions about anything from the next team lunch to the final project for your class.
In this session we will show you all you need to know to above how to save more time with the new Google Smart Canvas.
