Google Apps for Education is sweeping classrooms throughout the world for a simple reason: collaborative, accessible tools create innovative teaching and learning experiences. The possibilities are endless for students of all ages as they learn to:
- explore true revision process through Google Docs
- co-create presentations with Slides
- gather and investigate data with Form and Sheets
- design visually engaging pieces with Drawings.
“Going Google” only begins with creating student accounts. Simply handing out logins and smile does not support teachers and students and could potentially be disastrous! Scaffolding the skills and tools across grade spans and academic years takes careful planning. As an educator skilled in using Google Apps within the classroom, I am thrilled to have earned my Authorized Google Education Trainer badge in August, 2014.
I would love to come work with your staff to learn how to use Google Apps to increase staff collaboration and comfort with guiding students to use the tools as well.
