February Tech Tuesday

Every Tuesday in February!

February 19 is for Beginners

In the beginner sessions we will be exploring Google Apps for Education. We will create a document, a class folder, and learn how to use the Google Research tool to assist students in finding good, authentic sources of information. This session will also begin to explore how we can use our google accounts to streamline the process of turning in assignments so we don't need to worry about kids who lose their papers, have printer issues, dogs eating homework, etc...

February 12 & 26 is for Intermediate Computer Users

We will take a more in depth look at the google research tools. This is geared for teachers who are a little more comfortable using the computers. Even if you are unfamiliar with google Apps For Education, if you are comfortable using your computer and technology, this session is for you!

Guaranteed to be instructive and fun!
