Using Google Docs: A Workshop

Saturday, October 15, 2011

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By


Google provides a suite of online tools that can easily become a teacher’s best friend. Whether it's something basic like polling the class using a Google form or creating collaborative writing projects via Google Docs that can be shared across continents, the possibilities are endless and overwhelming. Never heard of Google Docs or forms? Heard about them but don't know how to make them work in your classroom? Then this workshop is for you.

Join Greg Benedis-Grab, an award-winning science teacher, as he covers the basics of Google Docs. He'll cover what they are, some basic strategies for using them, and tips and hints for how they can enhance your everyday classroom practices.

This workshop is aimed at all teachers. Participants should bring a wireless enabled computer for use in the workshop.

Registration,  limited to the first 20 registrants,  is currently sold out!
