GEUG14 - 23rd - 24th June University of York 2014 - Google Apps for Education European User Group meeting
Ok so its a bit of a mouthful but I am looking forward to attending the GEUG 14 event.
I recently stumbled across it existence as I was looking for some information about Google Apps for education that I might be able to use for my MA in Online and Distance Education.
It should make for an interesting two days.
The first day has speakers discussing Living in the Cloud - A Year with Google Apps. Case studies on connected learning with communities and Using Google apps for teaching and learning. At the very least I will be able to network and find out others experience of use GAFE in Higher Education in the UK.
The second day looks like it will focus on the Roadmap for where Google see Apps for Education going, I am looking forward to hearing about Google Classroom.
My main reason for going are:
To identify if and how other institutions are integrating it into their existing VLE's
Can GAFE enhance the student experience?
Trying to determine if it is possible to mobile technologies across a range of platforms and still have a parity of student experience.
So I hope to maybe see one or two people there, no doubt I will be clutching my chromebook.
