G Suite for School Operations
Participants who successfully complete this course will demonstrate the ability to create a digital system using at least one “Add on” to support a core schoolwide operation.

Do you believe that how a school functions can directly impact how a student learns? Are your school’s operational systems slow and cumbersome? Have you been meaning to develop a new system for attendance tracking, promoting intervisitations, or supporting family engagement? If you know there must be a better way, then this is the course for you. This is an online, project-based foundations course that focuses on how G Suite for Education can be used as a powerful tool to build efficient and effective operations systems for your schools.
Successful completion of this course assumes that teacher leaders, their colleagues, and students will have GAFE accounts and devices for use in the school context. Teacher leaders without Google Apps for Education should obtain permission from their school leader and/or work with technology staff at their school to set up a pilot domain and user accounts for their classroom, team, or grade level. To accomplish the objectives of this course, participants must have regular access to a reliable laptop with sufficient bandwidth to accommodate the use of Google’s browser-based applications.
