Are you a school support staff individual (school nurse, counselor, social worker, or administrative assistant) looking for an introductory level workshop created with you in mind? This one’s for you!
Google Workspace (aka G Suite for Education) is a suite of free Google tools and services that are tailored for schools utilizing asynchronous or synchronous learning in hybrid, in-person, or remote environments. In this workshop, participants will explore the most used G-Suite for Education apps, including: Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Forms, Google Slides, Google Calendar, and Gmail. Google Jamboard and Google Meets will also be explored, depending on time.
It is helpful (but not required) for participants to have explored each app prior to the workshop. Participants are required to bring a device with an internet connection.
