Google For Education Summit 2018
Thank you to the EdTechTeam for their very creative approaches towards education during the first ever St Chris Student Google Summit, and third Educator Summit hosted by St Chris
The School hosted the first ever Bahrain Google for Education Student Summit on Wednesday 22 March 2018. Google certified educators offered tips and guidance on how to use ‘Google for Education’ tools effectively. Students created their own experience, by customizing the day with interactive sessions. Workshops included opportunities for students to mix their own music, become an animator, use photography tips and tricks, ‘spice up’ their maps and photos, and learn about robots and code.
At the end of the day, the ‘Digital Playground’ invited groups to explore 360 Degree photography, Green Screen Magic, Virtual Reality and create tunes on the Google Jamboard.
We were also delighted to host the 3rd annual Google Summit for Educators over the following weekend. Staff from educational institutions across the country went back to the classroom (as students!) to take part. The EdTechTeam hosted inspirational keynote speeches and engaging interactive workshops to explain how to use the latest Google educational support tools and apps to enhance lessons.
Everyone could customize their experience by selecting workshops based on their topics of interest, which really helped to create a very educational and fun event for all involved.
