About the summit
The Pacific Northwest Summit, featuring Google for Education, is an annual, educator-led conference. We have learned together the past eight years in our fast-paced day of collaboration and fun. Each year has its own theme: Legos in 2010, Cookies in 2011, Robots in 2012, Mt. Hood in 2013, Bikes in 2014, Paper Airplanes in 2015; Augmented Reality in 2016, and Doorways to Learning in 2017. This year we’re putting our pin on the map as we share and explore.
The summit is an annual event on the second Friday of October—statewide in-service day for both Washington and Oregon.
Regular and Lightning Sessions
Our day is stacked with regular sessions that are 75 minutes each and lightning sessions that are 30 minutes each. This allows us to offer both in-depth how-tos and shorter-format idea sessions.
This is an active conference. Bring a device! Our session facilitators guide us through building sessions on topics like HyperDocs, Google Classroom, admin console automation, and more.
We’re Mobile Friendly
With the exception of a few laptop-specific functions in Sheets, our sessions play well on tablets and phones. Bring the device you use most in your classroom (or workflow).
Featured Talks & Keynote
We are excited to welcome 3 to PhD® Collaboration Director for Concordia University, and former Portland Public Schools principal, Kevin Bacon as our 2018 keynote speaker. Kevin’s story kicks off the day of learning and conversation.
The 2018 Pacific Northwest Summit is the place to be on the second Friday of October. Join your peers on this day of collaboration, exploration, and learning.
