We'll work through the core aspects of G-Suite including Google Classroom, Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms, Calendar, Keep, Sites, Groups, Hangouts, Gmail, and YouTube. We'll not only learn the program, but how to incorporate these products to expand student learning and expedite your teacher/admin workload.

I'll join your team and work with them on building personalized and applicable skills to meet their specific needs. We'll work on planning and creating blended learning lessons and templates, organizing workflow and end products to find and use every year, and on how to make the Internet work for you! With the incredible increase of digital curriculum offerings and methods, we'll work on creating a system and leveraging these free tools to run a classroom, building, or entire organization! We'll also have fun doing it!
