Getting Going with Google Drawings - GAFE Summit - Diana Mancuso

Last year, I took a leap and submitted a couple of proposals to present at the EdTechTeam Toronto Summit featuring Google for Education. I was over the moon to be able to share some tips and tricks at such an inspiring event, one that lead me to pursue certification as a Google Certified Educator: Level 2. I have met so many talented educators who have taught me so much, it was such a great feeling to be able to contribute to the learning community. I even attempted a Demo Slam, although I messed up the joke I had planned at the last minute. But it didn't matter. Everyone was so supportive. When the summit was over, I started counting down to the next one. Or two! 

This September, I hope to attend the Peel Summit on September 23-24, which is taking place in Brampton. I have already submitted a proposal for a beginners workshop centred around Google Drawings. Here is the description:

Tired of using the same old templates that lack a certain je ne sais quoi? In this session, you will learn tips and tricks that will glamify your Google Docs using the Google Drawings app. Learn how to manipulate layers, group objects, create a shadow effect, customize word art, design graphic organizers, and combine shapes to create your own clipart. Participants will also learn how to save clicks by utilizing keyboard shortcuts and how to convert a Google Drawing into a PDF file, JPEG, PNG or even a Scalable Vector Graphic which can be used with personal electronic cutting machines. Finally, participants will use their new-found skill set to edit master slides in a pre-made Google Slides template.

UPDATE: My session proposal has been accepted. Can't wait!

I have embedded my presentation below, which I plan to tweak with some additional tips and ideas. 



I will also be submitting a different proposal to present once again at the Toronto Summit, which will be taking place at Crescent School here in Toronto. Keep your fingers crossed for me, mkay? Thanks!
