General Description

This course will introduce teachers to Google Apps for Education and how they can be used to streamline all aspects of teaching from lesson planning and delivery, collection and marking of student work, the provision of timely and meaningful feedback and overall better student outcomes as a result.

 

Audience

For any Teacher interested in improving their workflow by spending less time on collecting student papers, handwriting comments, photocopying assessments, losing track of student work etc.  

 

 

All Google Apps run from Google Drive, so retaining accreditation relevant documents (student work, professional development notes, student welfare meetings etc) is made much simpler as these records are stored in Google Drive.  

 

These skills/requirements would benefit all teachers.   There is no niche audience.
