SESSION 3: MAKE AN APP USING GOOGLE SLIDES

What if I told you that you can create an out-of-this-world app with Google Slides?
YES! You heard right! By making small changes, we can use our current tools in ways that truly inspire!
Join me for an out-of-this-world adventure and let’s create an amazing app with Google Slides – it’s easy, quick and will ‘WOW’ your students!

OUR INCREDIBLE SPEAKERS:
HELLO! I am Frankie Cilliers. Some call me a speaker, others call me an entertainer. I consider myself, a little bit crazy. I also put together this amazing event.
I am a qualified ICT Educator, certified Google Educator, Apple Teacher and iAB Europe digital marketer with a very deep love and passion for uplifting teachers and school communities.
I strongly believe in the philosophy of lifelong learning and the empowerment of others through technology.
To me, technology is not simply a tool or a substitute – it is a powerful tool that can change lives.
In 2022, I was honoured to receive The Mail & Guardian Top 200 Young South Africans award in the Education category. This prestigious award recognises the work I do in terms of empowering students and educators through technology in Education.
Teacher and ICT Integration Specialist, EdTech Coach & Google Certified Trainer. Based in Cape Town, South Africa
Greetings! I’m Nicole Rennie. I’m a Kami Teacher, a Kami Coach, and a Kami Mom… and I totally love YELLOW so you may often see me in this colour! I have always been excited by how technology can enhance the way we come to understand things and can make learning accessible to even more than just those physically near a great teacher.
After teaching and authoring content for more than 15 years, I specialised in “Strategic Implementation of ICT in Education” and became an EdTech Coach. In helping teachers implement different tools, I found there’s just nothing like the all-in-one classroom sidekick, Kami.
Kami so easily transforms the content you want to use in your teaching. As a Kami Teacher Success Champion, I now get to share Kami’s magic with teachers all over the world, everyday! It is my great privilege to walk alongside and encourage teachers – they’re my favourite people!
I love supporting teachers that bravely take up opportunities to complement their reputable existing experience and pedagogical knowledge by prioritizing, experiencing and modelling purposeful technology usage.
As a Kami Mom, I’m super grateful for the positive, engaging impact Kami has on my children’s learning and studying, plus Kami helps me simplify my family admin with painless digital paperwork!
Kami is here to help YOU too!
Some of the future-skills the children we teach need are vastly different now, and so we owe it to them to keep reviewing, refining & recreating educational solutions that not only serve the learning outcomes but that serve to empower and equip them for THEIR future.
Are you tapped into the enhanced engagement, easy habitual collaboration and efficient feedforward and feedback that Kami can bring to your classroom environment?
Let Kami help you support your students’ learning needs? Let Kami be your classroom sidekick, as you work your classroom magic! Let’s Kami – 🎥 watch the cool video here!
