Technology Integration Workshops

June 18-21

In 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. The applications we will explore include Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Drive, and a variety of other tools and add-ons within the Google suite.

During this training, you will not only become knowledgeable on how to use the Google suite, but you will discover how various applications in the Google suite can become integrated into your teacher toolkit to enhance student engagement.  Throughout the training, we will demonstrate the game-changing collaboration abilities baked into each application to give you the experience, strategies, and confidence to continue exploring the advantages of integrating technology into your own classroom.  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.
