Another workshop I did at the beginning of this school year covered the basics of Google Calendar and Google Drive. Our teachers have had access to Google Apps for Education since 2011, but many of them are not aware of the plethora of tools available to them. I hope to do a better job this year of making sure they know what those tools are, and how to use them.
This workshop was focused on Calendar and Drive basics: accessing them, creating a new event or document, sharing, etc. I presented a “Challenge” for each tool for teachers to try during the workshop. For Drive, I had two challenges: beginner (open and collaborate on a shared document) and advanced (create a form).
Here are my slides. I am planning Calendar and Drive follow-up sessions soon.
