Google Applied Digital Skills Bootcamp, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Applied Digital Skills is Google’s free, online, digital literacy curriculum for adults. It uses video-based and project-based lessons to walk students through projects like making a résumé, applying for a job, or making a business plan from start to finish. It uses free G Suite apps you can access right from your Gmail account. This 3-hour workshop is generously sponsored by COABE.

Introduction to Motivational Interviewing, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Motivational interviewing is a counseling method that helps people resolve ambivalent feelings and insecurities to find the internal motivation they need to change their behavior. It is a practical, empathetic, and short-term process that takes into consideration how difficult it is to make life changes. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to sign up for ongoing motivational interviewing training throughout the 2019-2020 year that includes online training modules and monthly conference calls.

Free Digital Resources to Increase Student Engagement, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Kevin Honeycutt will take us on an always-changing romp through many exciting free tools we can use in schools, explore the idea of teachers as explorers, and the idea of taming the tools so they can be used in education. He will also explore the amazing and abundant free and affordable tools that can be used to offset costs, maximize effect, and drive improvement in schools.
