Google Resources and Supports

We are in the transition phase!  We have been to a few schools to cast the vision of digital literacy in CRCSD.  However, this is just a drop in the bucket. One thing we want people to feel is comfort.  We know that comfort comes with familiarity with the tools. While we are developing a comprehensive professional learning plan (more to come), we want to provide resources for those that want to get a jump start.  We started to curate a few resources that are tailored toward educators. Take a look below:

Facebook Page: Google for Education

Tips and tricks on how to use Google Apps in your classroom.  You will also get updates on what products are changing. We’ve found it useful because it is tailored directly to the classroom.

Twitter Handle: Google for Education

Twitter PLN Search: #GoogleEdu

An opportunity to build your professional learning network, ask questions, and gain insight from Google trainers and classroom teachers.  It’s a great way to connect with other educators from around the world.

Twitter Handle: Google Accessibility

Provides tips and tricks on how to build accessible content with the Google Apps

YouTube: Google For Education

How-tos, stories, and tutorials on how educators are using Google in the classroom.  Something we really liked are the EDU in 90, which are 90 second videos about how to integrate Google Apps in your classroom.

Google’s Teacher Center for Training

We will be providing customized tutorials and professional learning around the Google Apps in the spring.  However, if you’d like to get a jump start, here are a few training resources.

If you know of great resources, please share them with us in the comments!  We’d love to learn from you as well.  #PowerofWe

Finally, please contact us if you’d like to set up an individual meeting, PLC collaboration, or whole staff professional learning.
