The Motherload of Mapping (and Virtual Reality) Resources for Education
There are so many more applications for mapping in the classroom beyond just geography and history. What about language arts, math, science, business, art, foreign languages? In this session, I'll be sharing the motherload of mapping resources for education and beyond. We'll discuss Google Maps, Google Earth, and many great tools outside the Googlesphere. And now with so many VR additions with Google Cardboard and Google Expeditions, there are even more opportunities to integrate mapping and geography into any curriculum. Specific curriculum examples, activities and MOOC's will be shared that you can take back to your class the very next day.

Video Tools You Should Be Using
If you have been thinking about how to integrate video into your class or school, this is the session for you. We will discuss and create videos using Google Hangouts, YouTube, and WeVideo. You will also learn about free Teleprompters that work on Chromebooks! We will also show you some new emerging tech like 360 Cameras and drones.

Once familiar with the tools, you will learn about how we created a video network at Winneconne and North Fond du Lac using YouTube including, daily announcements, weekly shows, student projects, district projects, live broadcasts of elementary book shares, and live broadcasts of some school sports (we even have commentators!). Most of the tools we have used are free and available to everyone! Come learn about video creation in a collaborative session that will help jumpstart you and your school with video production!
