Presentation Title

Successfully Implementing New Technology in a College Course: Google Sites for a Collaborative Student Project

Document Type

Presentation

Session Description

Google Apps give every student easy access to some powerful tools. In this presentation I will describe how we developed a new assessment for a bioethics course that used Google Sites and required students to use 21st century skills, analytic and creative thinking, authentic learning, and collaboration. If you bring a computer, you can play a bit with Google Sites along the way, but it is the key things that made this a successful implementation of technology that will be most valuable.

Outcomes:

  • Identify key success factors to implementing new technology in a classroom
  • Gain basic familiarity with creating and editing Google sites
  • Appreciate the relationship building that allowed the technology component to also improve instructional methods
