In case some of you have missed the original information, I want to make sure that everyone knows about the available opportunities for Google Apps for Education (GAFE) training across the district and getting a Chromebook. This opportunity for certificated staff will allow users to learn about not only GAFE, but additional cool apps and extensions that engage students and empower teachers.Come learn with a cohort of users that find new ways to apply these tools and share with others!

If you sign up, commit and participate in the GAFE Digital Learning Academy, you will receive a Chromebook for your instructional/educational use. You will also receive clock hours for the face-to-face trainings and the Google Hangout sessions!  Please see the attached that describes the course sessions and title of the course so that you can sign up in the PDS system.

For those who have achieved and have become a Google Certified Educator - Level 1, you can receive a Chromebook by submitting your certification credentials to either myself or Robert Pohl. Upon submission you can schedule a time to come pick up your Chromebook from Instructional Technology.   Speaking of, we've hired a new member of the team.  Robert Pohl comes to Monroe with a wealth of experience--leading workshops in WA, OR, & CA in the Google Apps, SMART Boards, ActivBoards, and so much more.  You can learn more about him by visiting his Bio page.

Make sure that you register in the PDS session for the GAFE Digital Learning Academy and I look forward to seeing you!
