Welcome to Let Me Google That For You!, an online professional development course from the CNYRIC's Model Schools Program that introduces educators to a variety of Google's many collaboration and communication tools that will help facilitate 21st Century skill development among teachers, administrators, students, and families. 




Course Overview:
This course is divided into several Modules that will take you through a sampling of Google's suite of tools, including Google Drive (Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms), and Google Calendar, with some optional bonus material to learn more about Google Classroom, Google Sites, and Gmail. For each Module, you will read various help articles, view brief video tutorials, and participate in social learning activities.
