How to Add Pizazz to Your Google-Integrated Class Site!
This session provides an overview of a free alternative website-building platform called Wix that integrates Google Calendar, Maps, Google+, YouTube and Google Drive.

What makes Wix so special is its stunning designer-made templates, a simple “drag and drop” site editor, and its excellent support team. Incorporate Google apps and tools into your class website without sacrificing attractive, creative design.

The Tech Crewsaders Story
The development of a Seoul Foreign High School student tech support and innovation team was proposed by Brian Hamm after consulting with developers of similar programs in Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, and with the help of Jeff Utecht and the Google Ninja program. In the fall of 2012, Brian and the Tech Crewsaders kicked off their first semester of what was to be an amazing, transformational experience for the student group. More than doubling in size by the second semester, the dedicated team has also filtered into the other divisions at SFS, and is now pushing their own publication, the Tech Crewsaders Magazine, to thousands of viewers around the world. This student led and driven group has drastically impacted the SFS community through their various innovations and has prepared a template and package for you to get your own “Tech Crewsaders” club up and going in your schools.

Moving from Sorting to Searching
There was a time not to long ago when we taught students how to sort and organize their files. How to create folders inside of folders and basically do what we do in the physical world to our digital life. Then came the Internet and its endless websites. We tried to organize them but at last there were to many. So we turned to something different….we stopped trying to organize the web and we started searching it. Search is the skill of our era, a life skill that once mastered opens up all sorts of opportunities. Do we teach search in your classrooms and schools? This session will focus on the skills and strategies of search. Participants will walk away with K-12 lesson plans, ideas and classroom routines they can start using tomorrow in their classroom to teach students the skill needed most in today’s connected world. The skill of search.
