Google Classroom & G Suite: What are the possibilities?

Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Audience:  Teachers Grades 3-12, School Support Staff

Educators will take part in the Google Classroom experience as they are able to see its full use at a school site with exemplars of possibilities.  Attendees will leave with the resources to initiate G Suite and Google Classroom at a school site and begin setting up their classrooms and activities to both engage students and make teacher workflow management more efficient.

Participants will be leaving with the groundwork to set up their school as a G Suite for Education school alongside being able to have the building blocks to initiate the great things Google Classroom and G Suite apps have to offer.  Because of its device friendliness (iPads, Chromebooks, Macs, PCs, smartphones, etc.), educators can adapt learned skills for their own specific technology situations.
