  • One thing we do know is the web will be here and it will be even more powerful. Everywhere...but in schools
  • Despite these issues we face, I am extremely optimistic!
    For most of history, the family you were born into, the place and location you were born, the resources at your disposal, your income level, and your proximity to libraries were all factors that impacted your access to education - this is no longer true and it has changed in our lifetime.
    I shared the Columbus Library on 51st Street and 10th Ave – the same building we all shared in the community. There were four tables in the back and there was a pecking order to who could sit there. Even if you were there first, if the OG came in, you moved.
    Do you remember the Breakfast Club?
    How we do things has changed forever!
  • How can we see into the future.....What skills will be important?
    Should we just teach all students to code! NO....
  • Exciting learning
    Culturally Relevant
    Real-time Interaction
    Different Learning Pathways
    Authentic Audience
  • Google scenario...Change....
    We have moved away from single person departments and tasks to a 100% collaborative environment.
    This is a huge buzz word of NOW - you hear it all over the place.
    But imagine this scenario. I work in education at Google. I manage a global team that works across countries and across grade levels from K-20. Now every year, I have to set a strategy for next year's business. Imagine I were to go to my Vice President and present her a strategy I did myself. When she asked me, "Cristin - who'd you work with to develop this?" I said, "no one." "Really? Not the rest of your team, not your stakeholders, not any of your colleagues or mentors?" And I said, with a huge, proud smile, "Nope - I did it all myself!" She's probably fired me!
    But imagine another scenario - a classroom where students are taking a test. Standardized or not. And the end of the test, three students walk up and hand the teacher one test and say, "finished." Now - what would you call that?
    In school, almost every level of study is at the individual level – homework, testing, studying. Can you imagine what you would say if two students came up to you after an exam and said, we worked on this together and answered the questions?
  • How do we stop the cut and past

  • Let's break this down to look at how I see my team's function.
    As part of the Google education team, I see our goal as helping people discover, connect, and love learning.
    If I am to drastically simplify this.. We can achieve this in three steps: firstly by building and developing the technological foundation which is built with scalability in mind.
    This gives communities, such as the education community the tools to grow, develop and share information which makes learning magical.
    Various teams in Google are working hard in many areas of education, so let me give you some examples.
  • 20+million users....Free....Ad free....
    At Google, we believe in the power of the web to help people discover, connect, and learn. Our company’s mission “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful," and education lies at the very core of that mission.
    20+ millions
    The goal of the Google EDU team is to bring the power of the web to students today, and this goal goes far beyond search. We believe that leading-edge technologies will play a vital role in helping equip future generations with the skills they need to thrive in the workforce of today and tomorrow.
    With this in mind, the Google EDU team focuses on providing you with a powerful communication and collaboration platform with Google Apps for Education. We also are striving to provide you with strong web-based educational content, through things like YouTube for EDU and the Chrome webstore.
    Additionally, we offer devices that allow you to pull together the platform and the content to design a transformative curriculum for your students.
    Let's talk a little about those devices.
  • Enterprise class -
    Free, No Advertising - in the core products
    Full control

  • Here’s where the real value of the Chromebooks come in. This is where we answer the question of, “how do I go from 30 machines in one of my classrooms to 3000 machines in my school district?”
    The Chromebook was created with the web in mind and it was built with the idea that the only valuable application on a computer is the web browser. Because it is web based, you mange the devices with the web. As the administrator, you can configure and manage all the settings from the administrative panel.
    If you set up your users by organizational units, you can customize their experience with specific apps, extensions, and themes. In other words, your 8th graders and your 6th graders can log into any machine and have their own unique experience.
    Chromebooks are as secure as you can make a machine. They provide multiple levels of security, including sandboxing, data encryption, and verified boot. You don’t have to worry about malware or viruses. Because there is no hard drive, there is nothing to attack. If the Chromebook doesn’t like the way it’s booting up, it just shuts down and reboots.
    One of the most beneficial elements of Chromebooks is that they are always fresh. The Chromebooks update themselves and so you always have the latest operating system. This is the only machine that will not slow down over time, in fact, it will continue to get faster. It currently boots up in eight seconds. If in six months the Chrome OS allows Chromebooks to boot up in four seconds, then your Chromebooks will also boot up in four seconds.
  • Extensions are little programs that add useful functionality to the browser and to the websites you visit. For instance:
    -Get bonus information about a page (translation)
    -Get timely notifications (weather)
    -Do things with fewer clicks (Pinterest)
    Web-based applications are programs that are designed to be used entirely within the browser.
    -Dynamic functionality online:
    *Que Onda-- audio from real spanish speakers; games to help with things like conjugation; dynamic quizzes to test comprehension
    *Elementals-- an interactive periodic table of elements
    *iLearn-- great math curriculum for grades 3-8
    *Aviary-- multimedia applications that allow you to do things like edit sound and video
    *Dictionaries, scientific calculators, wikipedia, text editors
    -Apps don't crash your computer: Just close the tab - your browser and computer won’t be affected.
    - App Icons in Chrome: Easily find and launch apps from the new tab page
    App Packs: Many teachers deploying Chrome Devices for Education want to pre-install or recommend Chrome web apps on their students' devices. However, given the thousands of Chrome web apps available, it's not always apparent which ones are the best for your class. Google has created Chrome App Packs, which are groups of popular applications from the Chrome Web Store that are tailored to meet students' needs.
  • YouTube for Schools provides schools access to hundreds of thousands of free educational videos from YouTube EDU. These videos come from well-known organizations like Stanford, PBS andTED as well as from up-and-coming YouTube partners with millions of views, like Khan Academy, Steve Spangler Science and Numberphile.
    School admins and teachers can log in and watch any video, but students cannot log in and can only watch YouTube EDU videos plus videos their school has added. All comments and related videos are disabled and search is limited to YouTube EDU videos.
    You can customize the content available in your school. All schools get access to all of the YouTube EDU content, but teachers and administrators can also create playlists of videos that are viewable only within their school's network.
    YouTube.com/Teachers has hundreds of playlists of videos that align with common educational standards, organized by subject and grade. These playlists were created by teachers for teachers so you can spend more time teaching and less time searching.
  • Our goal is to ensure that educators at every level—primary, secondary, university, government, and nonprofit—have the tools and training they need to utilize new technology to its fullest potential
    But we don't want to recreate the wheel- so we work in partnership with teachers and organizations who are already innovating with education technology
    This cuts across all levels: from primary & secondary to universities to third-party organizations doing great work
    Primary & secondary:
    Ex 1: We offer Computer Science for High School (CS4HS), a series of summer workshops for high school teachers held at universities in the US, Europe, Middle East and Africa (with pilots in Australia and Asia Pacific) that provide tools and training to help CS educators teach effectively and build community. In 2011, we funded more than 70 programs that trained thousands of educators worldwide on various aspects of CS. We have trained thousands of teachers to date
    Ex 2: At the Google Teacher Academy, we offer primary and secondary teachers a professional development experience and hands-on training using technologies- they learn and share innovative instructional strategies
    University: Larry and Sergey started Google as a result of a project at Stanford- so our roots are with universities and our relationships remain strong
    Ex 1, Google Faculty Institute: Through the Google Faculty Institute, we train future K-12 faculty from schools of education, science and math to explore teaching paradigms that leverage technology.
    Ex 2, Research Awards: We give funding annually to professors innovating in education and technology, and also have faculty in residence
    Nonprofits: We are a funder and partner to non-profits like the Khan Academy & Harlem Children's Zone, who are working to improve access to education at great scale. This image is from the generating Genius charity in the UK which gives STEM opportunities to students normally do not have access to them

    We think students should not just be consumers of information, but co-creators of it, taking an active role in developing the technology that will shape their futures
    Google is committed to developing hands-on programs, scholarships, curriculum, and competitions that ignite students’ imaginations
    We want to inspire them to love learning, and especially to pursue the study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)
    CAPE- At Google’s Computing and Programming Experience (CAPE), future computer scientists explore the endless possibilities of computing at a hands-on summer program held on Google campuses across the country. Over the last two years, more than 300 8th graders have participated in CAPE or Inspired by CAPE programs.
    Summer of Code is a global program that offers university students stipends to write code for various open source software projects. More than 5000 students have participated and hundreds of organizations have provided mentors. Its sister program, Google Code-In, is an open-source competition for K-12 students
    RISE- Google Roots in Science and Engineering (RISE) awards promote and support STEM and CS education by funding organizations working with K-12 schools and university students to provide enrichment programs in these fields. To date, more than $600,000 has been awarded to 50 nonprofit and university organizations throughout the US, Canada, and EMEA.
    Google Science Fair celebrates curiosity and engages young scientific talent via a global science competition in which students ages 13-18 compete for prizes that include internships and scholarships. More than 10,000 students were involved in submitting 7,500 experiments from 91 countries in 2011, making this the largest science fair in the world

  • Just a tool but never the less an important one...
    Technology shouldn't be the focus, it should be invisible, like our Chromebooks, immediate access to learning.
