P079-7457.1F18 - Making Google Work for You: Google Apps for Classroom Teachers

Course Details
Course Description: Participants who successfully complete this course will demonstrate an ability to successfully create a learner-centered online learning hub using one or more G-Suite Applications.

Google Apps for EDU (GAFE) is a popular cloud productivity, teaching and learning platform used in many NYCDOE schools, universities, and modern workplaces. Free, school-managed GAFE accounts can include core applications like Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Google Sites, and Google Classroom which, if used well, can support powerful shifts in the way learning resources and activities are structured and assigned. This course will focus on using GAFE to assign and manage rich student production tasks like argumentative essays, textual-analysis, blogging, data reports, and multimedia presentations. Add-ons for Google Docs will be introduced as tools that can make differentiated and group assignments more manageable, allow for improved quality and timeliness of teacher feedback, and assist with the myriad tracking, reporting, intervention, and personalized communication tasks that make for a responsive and supportive classroom.

The course is led by currently-practicing NYCDOE teachers who run their classrooms using GAFE. Participants will be assessed based on their successful setup of core instructional systems that are learner-centered – a class website using Google Sites, a folder structure using either (or both) Google Classroom and Doctopus, and the creation, management, and assessment of at least one rich student production task via Google Drive.
