Google PD....That's free!

I just received this and thought this would be a great PD for you to enjoy!!

Getting Started with Google for Education

WHAT IS IT?
Getting Started with Google for Education is an 8-week training program that delivers bite-size training tutorials directly to your inbox. Each lesson takes less than 15 minutes to complete and provides basic, Level 0 training videos to get you started with G Suite for Education.


HOW DOES IT WORK?
  • End-users can sign-up for the email series via a registration page (can also be found on the Teacher Center, here) and that will kickoff the 8-week email series. 


After registering:
  • Users will immediately receive a confirmation email letting them know they’re registered, and that content will come every Tuesday at 10am PST. Note that they can sign up at any time - there’s no end date. 
  • Each email will contain a link to start the weekly lesson
  • Lessons cover just one product each week, are video-based with interactive components, and end with a quick knowledge check
  • The content is VERY BASIC. It was built to cater to users who are just getting started using G Suite for Education
  • Weekly Lesson Schedule
    • Week 1: Drive
    • Week 2: Docs
    • Week 3: Classroom
    • Week 4: Forms
    • Week 5: Slides
    • Week 6: Sheets
    • Week 7: Drawings
    • Week 8: Sites

Kindergarten PD @ DES 9/12/19

This morning, I had the opportunity to meet with the wonderful team at Dade Elementary to share different resources for tech, specifically for kindergarten students.

It doesn't matter the age of the student, all students can learn to use the Chromebook and create some pretty awesome things.

Here is the handout I shared with them for 25+ different resources that can be used in the classroom.

Enjoy!

I ran across an article by SimpleK12 that listed and described websites that can be used, but don't require registration.  I thought it might come in handy.  SimpleK12
