What You'll Need
Please bring a set of headphones or earbuds.
We will be using the Windows computer lab at Tuscarawas Valley Middle School for the majority of the training but these devices do not have a webcam. The exam for the Google Educator Certification requires a webcam to complete. If you have a device, such as a Chromebook or other type of laptop, you are welcome to bring it along to use for the exam on Friday. If you do not have a device with a webcam, don't worry. Please mark that on the registration form and we will provide you with a Chromebook that you can use for the certification exam.
If you are taking the course for graduate credit, you may want to bring your check book, credit card, or cash. Remember, Ashland University does assess an additional fee for credit card transactions.
