Course Description

This course will introduce Google Workspace & Apps for Education and how teachers can incorporate Google Apps into their classroom with a view to improve student learning, educational outcomes and assessment.

Google versatility in the classroom

We will explore the basics within the Google Suite of Apps (docs, sheets, forms, slides, classroom, sites) and  look at a couple of other lesser-known Google tools, such as Google Jamboard, Google Forms, Google Keep & Google Drawings.

The modules will include access to a Google Classroom, which will be a tangible example of how the various tools work. We will cover each application, including how to use it, as well as specific examples on how the tools can be implemented in the classroom.

By the end of the course, you will learn how to set up and use Google Classroom and Sites to create a platform where students can interact virtually to share resources and assignments. You should also be able to utilise and implement the various Google Apps for educational purposes to engage students in learning, increase their productivity and appreciate how to use Google Tools for assessment.

Each session will focus on a particular app or resource and explain how this tool can be incorporated into the classroom. We will cover the basics involved in Google Apps (docs, sheets, forms, slides) and provide a snapshot of how these apps can be utilised in the classroom.
