Course Description

Bring Time-Savings and Productivity to Your Teaching Practice

Google Tools have been firmly embraced by many educational institutions because of their ability to foster collaboration and efficiency. Google Workspaces (formerly “GSuite”) is perhaps the most familiar range of offerings, including Google Docs, Slides, Forms, and Sheets. One of the newest layers to the family of Google Tools is Google Classroom. This Learning Ecosystem allows teachers to seamlessly leverage Google’s communication features as well as some new organizational tools. Google Classroom is built on the Google Workspaces foundation, so it is recommended that you feel comfortable using the Google Workspaces or are willing to spend additional time learning these tools throughout the course.
