Google Training Opportunities
I will offer Google training after-school, once or twice a week, beginning on November 17th and running until the end of January. Topics will include Google Drive, Google Calendar, Gmail, and Chromebooks. Look for specific details of each class in upcoming issues of Tech Tips and Tricks Tuesday and be sure to RSVP for the November 17th Training (see specific details of the class below).
