Upcoming Google After Hours Classes

It has been a snowy week in western Wisconsin. We have had to cancel 4 Google After Hours classes due to weather conditions! Please keep checking the staff development link on the staff portal for updates. Some sessions with high interest are being rescheduled. If you have questions about the course content a session will cover, please email your tech coaches. Next week, we will be offering the following sessions:

2/25/14 - Uploading Your H: Drive to Google Drive (Basic) @ Hillcrest
Although CFAUSD employees still have access to H:/ drives and I:/ drives, there is limited space available to store documents. Your district Google account gives you 30 times the space allotted on your H:/ drive. Come learn about the benefits of cloud storage, tips about Google Drive and begin uploading the documents from your H:/ drive to your Google drive to give you more space and 24/7 access to your files. 

2/26/14 - Google Drive, Docs and Sharing (Basic) @ Hillcrest
This will be an overview of Google Drive, creating documents, sharing and collaborating. Participants should be able to log in to Google Drive prior to attending.  

2/26/14 - Collecting Student Work and Organizing Your Google Drive @ Chi Hi Room 137
Organizing your Google Drive can be a daunting task. Students share documents with you and your Drive can become overwhelming. Attend this session to learn ideas for alternative ways for students to electronically hand in their work, ways to organize student work in your drive, and other tips about electronic document management. Working knowledge of Google Docs and Drive is required for this session. 

2/27/14 - Google Projects and Project-Based Learning @ Parkview
Throughout our district and especially in our 1:1 program at the high school, innovative teachers are using Google Apps for Education to allow students to create fun, meaningful learning projects based on standards and curricular content. This session will give you an overview of some of those projects as well as providing discussion time for brainstorming ideas. Follow-up Technology Coaching will be available upon request to assist you with implementation.
