Study Group  - 
 
Welcome to week 9 of our 9-week Google Certified Educator Level 2 Study Group! This week we are focusing on Unit 9: Give Students a Voice.

In this unit, you’ll learn to:

-Facilitate healthy discussions both online and in the classroom
-Use technology to achieve a group goal
-Develop an authentic audience for student work
-Help students mobilize their community and inspire change at their school
-Combine their skills and the tools they know to inspire positive change for a wider community

Here are some questions for you to consider as you get ready to start the week. This is the last unit!

1. What is one example where you engage students in discussion in your class? Is it synchronous or asynchronous and have you tried both?
2. How have you had students publish their work online? Share a success story or offer advice for others just starting out.
3. What is one opportunity students have a chance to have their voice heard in your classroom or school?
4. How have you involved the community with your class or school?

This is such a great opportunity to invoke true change in schools, and it can start in your own classroom. Please share ideas at any time. Looking forward to it!

See you there!

Discussion  - 
 
Update from the field - we successfully tested 120+ students on Tuesday, 1/26/16.  Some notes from our experience below: 

All on Chromebooks - this was easier for us to manage instead of having a mixed platform environment. 
Some minor issues loading kiosk app - check for latest OS update, powerwash device, check to make sure app settings are correct if you used multiple OUs w/ different config files.
Used Logitech headset/mics with single line input - no issues.
Had common set of headphones and rotated students for speaking portion. 
Some issues with students not understanding some of the drag/drop elements - be ready to support if needed.  Some thought it was "frozen", but it was just a challenging drag/drop, or you had to select the right part of the object to move. 
Noticed that students who ran out of time couldn't move on until they selected answers for everything.  Didn't see in person, but was told by our staff that this happened. Maybe this gets fixed in the future.

OK, Study Group - it's reading week. That means study time for the big exam. If you haven't registered, please find the link below. Please continue asking any questions as you prepare. All of our facilitators (and anyone else) will be able to answer and support. Lastly, leave a comment once you've taken the exam. Let us know how it goes (without sharing answers of course...). Stay tuned for additional study group ideas, including a possible face-2-face group!
