Program Structure:

Your school may have gone Google, and you are now asking: “What’s next?”. This session will focus on getting more from Google Drive (Spreadsheets, Forms, Add­Ons) and tackling Google Classroom, the newest addition to the GAFE suite. Attendees will have an opportunity to create their own templates and even learn basic scripting which they can then bring back to school to automate previously  manual  processes.  Google  Classroom  is  a  workflow  management  tool  for  teachers  to  engage  with  their  students,  set assignments and share information freely within their class in a digital format.

      Programme synopsis:

      Basic scripting to automate recurring processes and creating a workflow management platform to engage students are two aspects that teachers often explore. They provide opportunities for educators to  enhance productivity and create a central repository to post learning resources and assignments that can be ubiquitously accessed. In this workshop, participants will explore some of the add-ons application and setting up of a virtual learning and teaching platform. Practical ideas that are harnessed from the teacher users will be shared with the participants. (82 words)
