“Google Apps for Financial Literacy” at the Jump$tart 2019 Summit

The Utah Jump$tart Coalition organized this excellent summit in Salt Lake City to support the educators teaching our students about financial literacy.  Attendees receive the book Google Apps for Learning Financial Literacy by Courtney Snyder.

In my 40 minute presentation we will review the Google Tools utilized in the book, share some tips on making teaching with Google Apps easier for both teachers and learners, and then look at an easy way to use the Canvas LMS to assign and grade student content created with Google Apps.

Check out the entire presentation embedded below and refer back to the resources embedded as you are teaching Financial Literacy with Google Apps.

VR In the Classroom on UEN PDTV

Spending time in the classroom with students is my favorite part of being an educator.  And this spring, I was fortunate to be invited to Joel P. Jensen Middle School in West Jordan, Utah.  Media Specialist Belinda Gambrino and Teacher Dustin Plott invited us to share a lesson using Google Expeditions with a group of kids who meet after school to learn more about Innovation and Design in their MakerSpace STEM Program.  Take a look at the video above to see how well VR and other Mixed Reality Tools engage learners in new ways.
