“What characteristics does Google look for in their employees?”

IMG_20140414_170424

The Google Apps For Education summit and all of it’s “Googly Goodness” doesn’t kick off until tomorrow, but this afternoon +Riss and I had the pleasure of attending a pre-summit tour of the Sydney Google offices hosted by +Suan.

+Riss asked +Suan a very provoking question, “What characteristics does Google look for in their employees?”. His responses echoed sentiments of what Intel told us last year on the ACCE13 Study Tour, that Google employees are to be open minded to the constant of change, team players and collaborators, and skilled at finding problems and designing solutions.

For +Riss  and I it sparked 2 important questions. If education is to prepare our young minds for their future lives and to supply workforces:

how much of our teaching & learning is genuinely geared towards team work, problem finding, designing solutions and a healthy attitude for the unknown? Moreover, if teachers are not open-minded to change, how can they expect their students to be?

 

Taking these questions as a lens will be a great way to kick off tomorrow’s summit!

Google Apps For Education Summit Sydney (2014)

Next week the 2014 Google Apps For Education Summit tour lands in Sydney. Last year’s summit in January 2013 was the real starting point for me and my school’s journey with Google Apps For Education. This year I have the privilege of sharing 2 presentations at the Sydney summit. All of my presentations and resources can be found below:

Presenting at the Google Apps For Education summit Melbourne

The GAFE summit tour is coming to Melbourne this week. Earlier this year I attended the summit in Sydney, and if that was anything to go by, I am sure that the Melbourne summit will be just as awesome.

I have the privilege of presenting 2 sessions at the summit, the details of which, can be found below.
