This training will focus on collaboration strategies for the classroom utilizing the Google Suite of Apps for Education.
During this training, we will develop a foundational understanding on how to implement the Google Suite of Apps for Education into the classroom to facilitate student engagement. Collectively, we will create a variety of documents you will be able to take back to your classroom to get your students working together, creating, and presenting. This training is designed to be an introduction to the Google Suite of Apps for Education and is recommended for all beginner Google Suite users. Teachers with a more advanced understanding of Google apps are encouraged to sign up for the Technology Integration Workshop Part II: Google Collaboration course in February.
