This intensive training is designed to introduce experienced users of Google Apps to advanced applications of the most useful tools for educators. This hands-on training will focus on learning new functions and shortcuts in the tools participants are already using: Docs, Gmail, Sites, Calendar, Forms, Chrome, Drive and more. Additionally, time will be spent reviewing and preparing for the requirements to become a Google Educator or Trainer.
