Course Description:

Is your school a Google-centric environment? Do you use many of the apps in G Suite for Education? Do you wish you knew how to use Google Apps to improve teaching and learning? This online course is designed to help teachers master the Google apps that are part of Google Workspace for Education, as well as some others. You will learn the basics of the apps as well as how to integrate them into your classroom and curriculum. The course begins with an overview of the most popular Google apps as well as an introduction to technology configurations and integration. Then, we jump into an in-depth look at how to use the following apps within the context of the curriculum: Drive, Docs, Calendar, Search, Translate, Forms, Slides, Sheets, Earth, Maps, Classroom, Photos, Sites, and Keep. The final step in putting it all together by reviewing and creating lessons that integrate several Google apps into a single lesson.
