Workshop: Go Paperless with Free Google Tools

March 12, 2010

As I mentioned in previous posts, I’m leading a 3-day workshop for teachers and administrators interested in learning how to increase collaboration and reduce unnecessary printing using tools that Google offers to schools and non-profits absolutely free.  This workshop will be in Hot Springs, Arkansas June 21-23, 2010.  The registration fee of $150.00 includes lunches and all materials.

This 3-day, 18 hour technology workshop is designed for classroom teachers and school administrators who want to learn new ways to increase collaboration, improve the quality of student feedback, rely less on printed documents, and leverage the many powerful tools Google offers free to schools.  It is taught by Google Certified Teacher Daniel Moix.  Topics include collecting data with Google Forms, creating custom heat maps with Google Spreadsheets, facilitating peer edits with Google Documents, planning lessons with Google Calendar, and more!  Make a school or classroom website.  Share your district’s curriculum documents in one place so everyone is on the same page.  See how the ASMSA Counseling Department has automated the transcript request process for college applications.  Participants will learn how to do all of these things with their personal Google accounts, and they will learn about the additional capabilities of Google Applications for Education such as posting classroom video projects online that are accessible only to those at your school.  This workshop is limited to 15 participants, and it will fill up quickly.

Please pass this information along to educators in your organization who might be interested in this hands-on program.  To claim your space, contact Kim Singleton by email or toll free at (800)345-2767.  The deadline for registration is May 1.
