The 4 Cs of collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity are essential skills that students can use across curricular areas. The 4Cs also essential skills that need to be developed for work and life. Google Apps for Education provides an incredible foundation to support and develop these skills. This fast paced session will introduce attendees to the power of the 4Cs and the many Chrome, Google, and connected Web Resources that can support the development of these critical skills. Participants will collaboratively work together to connect a variety of resources to different skills. They will communicate using Google+, Google Drive, Twitter, and small group discussion. Participants will put their critical thinking and creative skills to the test as attendees and the facilitators work and learn together. The session will allow for differentiated learning as participants choose to dig deep into a few resources or expand their learning and be introduced to a wealth of resources. The session will be supported by a website and Google+ Community dedicated to supporting the 4Cs in the classroom.
