Implementation

1:1 Implementation
Putting a device into the hands of every student sounds like a great solution to whatever ails ya. But without clear purpose, plans and procedures, a 1:1 program is just jumping on the bandwagon. And we all know when schools or districts fall off that wagon, the cost is high-in dollars and in lost learning opportunities.

But K-12 learners still need guidance and someone to shape and facilitate their educational endeavors. This course is the place to start when preparing to do so.

Google Apps Fundamentals Google Apps Fundamentals
Back in the day, the central nervous system of a teacher's room was a big metal filing cabinet. Or two. Or more.

But being stuck in a classroom on Sunday afternoon or long after dark is a thing of the past. With Google Apps, you can do it all, with complete access to your paperwork, anywhere you have Internet access. No more, "I'll look it up when I go back to class and let you know..."

Google Classroom

Google Classroom
In the words of a favorite movie pirate at a moment of surprise: "Well, slap me thrice and hand me to me mummy!" It's not often teachers feel truly heard about what would really help us, especially amid the din of "What's needed in education?" (Every swab on deck seems to know the answer... how many times have you wanted to shout "aaaaaaargh!"?) But Google heard our plea for parley. And delivered the treasure chest called Google Classroom.
