This session is designed to provide an introduction to the theory of unconscious bias and gender stereotypes and to challenge thinking and practice. We will look at how biases form and their effects on our own behaviours, on pupils and on the learning environment. There will be chance for people to reflect on their own practice and consider specific barriers for girls accessing computing science and possible strategies to mitigate this.
This session focuses on the groundwork into recognising and challenging our own biases and those of others as well as the stereotypes that deter children from exploring all opportunities. We will look into the science of biases, how they form and the reasons we should be looking to challenge them. There will be an opportunity to explore possible activities to take back to your own setting, and you will be invited to return and share what worked and engage in collaboration with practitioners from various settings.
Aimed at teachers and teaching assistants working with children who have not used Google Classroom much or at all to manage learning in one place.
Your own G Suite for Education account may not be allowed to join our demo Classroom based on your school’s settings, so you will have the option of using a demo account or be a student in the Classroom. You can also follow along and create a Classroom of your own in your own G Suite for Education account as we go through the content.
When: Wednesday 31st March @ 4pm
Create simple digital matching activities with Google Slides and Drawings. In this session we will look at digitising matching activities for learners to make them accessible beyond the classroom and something that can be used more diagnostically to review learning and progress.

Aimed at teachers and learning support, this session specifically looks at Google Drive collaboration and sharing through the lens of lesson planning.

Aimed at teachers and learning support who are relatively new to G Suite or need a refresher. This session will take you through Google Drive, the cloud based storage you can access anywhere, anytime from any device.
We will look at; how you can manage your own Drive, collaborate easily with others and share key documents, planning and resources. Collaborate in a Google Doc to see edits happen live, as well as exploring version history (an incredibly impactful tool to review learning as well as see who contributed what to your document). We will also look at Slides to make sure you feel comfortable bringing existing resources in other formats into Google Drive and converting them to be collaborative where necessary.
