EdCamp Athens is this Saturday!

And there are only a few spots remaining!

If anyone is looking for an incredible experience with great door prizes, rock star educators from across the state, and a lot of great local food (including a frozen custard sundae bar), register to attend and don't miss out!

The school (North Oconee High) is located just outside of Athens to make it more accessible to those coming from the Western side of Georgia via Highway 316/78.

I hope to see you there!

Very, very useful!
 
Introducing inactiveAccountInventory - a very simple Add-on for GAFE domain admins to identify users who just aren't logging in!

This Add-on was primarily built to help schools serving high-needs student populations identify and intervene around inequities in student account usage.

Use scenarios:
Students lose their GAFE logins and often don't seek help. Teachers may not be making GAFE account usage an expectations of students, resulting in low usage rates. A student may have left the school or district and the account now requires deprovisioning.  Some late-adopter members of your staff may have missed the memo that they are supposed to be checking their email.

The inactiveAccountInventory Add-on makes it a snap for super-admins to identify which accounts are lying dormant on the domain so your school can take the appropriate next actions.

Install here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/inactiveuserinventory/igbpefhonccbnklchngjkfgbjjoihcip?utm_source=permalink

(not yet public in the Add-ons for Sheets store)

Features include:
- ability to set the threshold number of days that defines user inactivity.
- ability to select and scan specific Organizational Units

Note: You must be a domain super-admin to run this Add-on.

Introduction
I am an Ed Tech doctoral candidate and an eleven-year educator with many roles, including including instructional technology specialist, educational consultant, faculty trainer, high school instructor, educational researcher, a Google Certified Innovator (Chicago '13), and conference presenter. 

I specialize in using and teaching effective digitized pedagogy. My research resides in emergent trends and technology in education specifically including social media and branding in educationgames-based learning, and adoption of emergent technology.

I was named an Emerging Leader 2014 for the International Society of Technology in Education and the Teacher of the Year 2014 by the Foreign Language Association of Georgia.

Currently, I am serving as an Instructional Technology Specialist for the phenomenal Oconee County School district outside of Athens, Georgia. I am passionate about change-making and leadership in education in the state of Georgia and the surrounding region. I consult for public and private school districts around the nation, but I enjoy focusing in the Southeast, and I champion the EdCamp movement in Georgia. 

Outside of my professional life, I am married a gadget guy in love with college athletics and enjoy playing with my two little lady geeks-in-training. I have a deep love for the state of Georgia and exploring trails, cities, rivers, and communities from the place I was born and raised.
