This week long experience, planned and designed by Maine 207’s team of Google Certified Apps Trainers will first prepare you to use the core suite of Google Apps for Education, which includes Google Documents, Gmail, Sites, Calendar, Chat, Groups and Video. As teachers are learning the tools there will be hands-on opportunities for modifying existing lessons to become more collaborative using Google Apps. Teachers will also be given the opportunity to model authentic student activities by building a portfolio of work using Google Sites.
Courses are 4 full days from 8:30am - 3:30pm and the final day is from 8:30-11:30am. Lunch is provided on the full day sessions.
