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, Doorways to Learning in 2017, Maps in 2018. This year we’re wondering about what’s next as we finish our first decade.
The summit is an annual event on the second Friday of October—statewide in-service day for both Washington and Oregon.
Way back in the grand year 2010, Corin Wyatt said our hashtag for the summit is #goog10. We’ve followed that model each year since. This year, we’ll use #goog19 on social media. What makes this pretty great is looking back through the tweets and posts for each year separately, including the one year we were trending and have some hashtag spam. It was also the year we broke Google. 😉
Keynote Speaker &
This is the tenth year of the Pacific Northwest Google Summit and we’re going to kick it off old school, with Corin Wyatt and Rachel Wente-Chaney, who were there at the very beginning.
We’ll celebrate the learning we’ve shared, challenge our thinking about technology in our classrooms, and start the rocket launch countdown for the second decade of our PNW education community collaborative work.
This Google Summit community has changed our lives for the better, in more ways than we can count. We’re happy to be part of the Oregon leadership team that kicked off and sustained this event for its first decade. And we’re excited to see what’s next!
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).
The 2019 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.
