OPA Summer Tech Workshops "Improve your Googliness"

This summer, take a couple of hours to keep connected and tap into some great tools that you can use in your classroom!

Each week I will host a 2 hour workshop for anyone at Ogden Prep with a main Google topic with "bonus" topics like Google Drawings, Hangouts, Photos, YouTube, etc.

Please RSVP to me at least 48 hours in advance...I will ask that there will be a minimum of 5 participants for each session. Once the workshop has met the minimum requirements for participants, I will send each a Google Calendar invite for your confirmation.

  • 8-10am Thursday, June 22nd: Google Classroom: Location: Hub City Coffee Co. -Grade 3-9th grade teachers will be the "target audience" for this workshop, but any teacher will benefit. Learn how to create a Google Classroom for the different subjects and classes you teach, assign work, post comments to students privately as well as public comments to the class as a whole. Other tips and tricks will be discussed and practiced in this hands-on workshop.

  • 8-10am Thursday, July 6th: Google Sites and Google Drawings - Learn how to create and manage a website for your classroom using Google Sites. This hands-on workshop will begin by having participants create their own site with specific pages for different topics as well as using Google Drawings to create custom images to make your site more personalized. As a bonus, Google Photos will also be used in this workshop!


(there will also be Chromebooks available for in-class use)

Each week we will take some time to "invite" guest speakers into our classroom via TED, Crash Course, and other sites on YouTube and the internet. If you are not yet familiar with these yet, follow one of these links and explore!
