Description

WARNING: This workshop is highly collaborative! The idea of the Go Slow Workshop is to experience the activity as a student. Then get the directions for how to try it yourself, report back and get feedback. Then learn the next new thing instead of cramming all the instruction into a 6 hour drink with a firehose PD. Normally it is okay to lurk in a workshop but this diminishes the experience for the other workshop participants. Please try to at least participate in the weekly collaborative activity even if you choose to skip any of the other assignments and activities. 

This 6 week workshop is for users of G Suite who want to learn some activity ideas to use with students that take advantage of the collaborative features of G Suite.

Note: For this workshop you will sign up for a Collaborative Learning Group where your group will pick a time each week to do a quick collaboration.

Go Slow Workshops™ are 6 weeks. This gives you the opportunity to practice what you have learned before moving on to learning something new. Each week's activities are designed to take about an hour. (Note, this does not include the time you spend with your students to try out the activities.)

Unlike a self paced video course, Go Slow Workshops™ are designed to be interactive and collaborative. Activities for the week are posted on Monday and you have all week to work through the activities and interact with the teacher and other workshop participants. At the end of the 6 weeks the workshop will be archived, but can be found in Google Classroom by using the menu to access "Archived classes."

Workshop not a class. Go Slow Workshops™ are not a graded class. Participate as much or as little as you wish. As the saying goes "You get out of it what you put into it." You can simply lurk and see what is posted or fully interact with Alice and workshop participants. If you would like Continuing Education credits for the Go Slow Workshops™ please fill out this Google Form.

Go Slow Workshops™ are conducted through Google Classroom. Classroom is designed to be collaborative, interactive, and makes sharing easy. For this reason I choose to use Classroom as the platform for the workshops. The default for school G Suite accounts is to RESTRICT you to your school. You will need a PERSONAL Gmail account that ends in @gmail.com to join the workshops. If you would like to use your school G Suite email please have the Google Apps admin whitelist fresnoteach.org in the admin panel.

If you have any challenges joining a Go Slow Workshop™ or have questions about a workshop please email info@alicekeeler.com
