While doing a little research this morning, I stumbled upon this great site that I had not encountered before:

https://www.google.com/edu/training/get-trained/

This resource from the Google for Education site has self-paced instructions on how to use and implement about 20 different Google services and tools, including Drive, Docs, Classroom, Chrome, Chromebooks, YouTube, as well as a module on Digital Citizenship.

We are using Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks ever increasingly in our region, in Utah, and in the entire country. They are amazing tools, and you can’t beat the cost. These resources will be a great help for those teachers who just like to get their hands dirty and teach themselves how to use these tools, and will be a great resource for my teachers after the training has happened that have those lingering questions that always come up.

Happy Google-ing!

Thanks to Chris Haught for forwarding this to me. This Google Presentation highlights 75 different Google Play & Chrome Web Store apps. The slides are organized into student tools, teacher tools and language & literacy apps sections. The majority of tools highlighted are for Android tablets, but many are available for Chromebooks.

It’s certainly worth a look!

This is an exciting time in Beaver County. It will be amazing to see just what you, your teachers and students can accomplish with 24/7 access to Chromebooks, Google Drive, the Internet, and the World. We have a LOT to cover today – here’s our ambitious agenda. All of the information and resources we will cover today are accessible from the presentation below:

Thanks for joining my session today at the 2014 Summer Administrators Conference. We will start by taking a look at my Demo Site which shows and describes the types of pages you can create in your Google Site. Be sure to check out the Google Sites Help Center to help make your site great!

We will also take a look at a wonderfully visual bookmarking site called Symbaloo. It’s free to sign up, and you can create custom ‘Webmixes’ with tiles linking to your students favorite and most used sites. Here’s my Webmix of my recommended educational iPad apps.

Here is (almost) Everything You Need to Know About Chromebooks. You should also check out Mastering Google Apps for the Classroom (PDF) that lists strategies  to roll out Google Apps in your school or district, as well as great summaries and examples of what Google Apps can do in the school setting. Thanks to Nathan Wilson from SESC for sharing this resource with me.
