G Suite Foundations: Google Basics for Educators and School Staff
Participants who successfully complete the course will demonstrate the ability to use G Suite for Education tools to manage classroom workflow and create engaging student lessons, activities, and assessment opportunities. Participants will extend that competency by aligning course assignments with specific SAMR levels and reflecting upon each tools impact on student digital skills and citizenship.
This course focuses on improving teachers’ ability to use G-Suite to organize their classroom work; it also helps other school staff use G-Suite tools in their work. This course is the first of three courses that improve skills in using G-Suite to support instruction; as this is a foundations course, no familiarity with G-Suite apps is expected. In order to succeed in this area, participants should check that they are enrolled in the best course of these three to build on their current skill levels.
