Google for Education: Search, Collaborate and Create

Description

Concept by Ilaria Barbieri

Basic Computer Proficiency required. Read more »

Basic computer proficiency courses are designed for individuals who have limited experience with technology. Participants will learn fundamental skills such as navigating the web, and using basic programs.

The use of some Google tools has become a habit in many people’s daily lives. To search for information, write and share materials, and look for street directions, most of us are used to getting a helping hand from the most basic Google apps.

In addition to that, many schools are embracing ready-made online systems such as Google Suite to provide more effective tools for teaching and learning. However, educators often do not know how to make the most out of Google apps.

This course is for all teachers who are interested in using Google products. Google offers many applications that educators can take advantage of for face-to-face, blended, and remote teaching.

During this practical course, participants will acquire deeper knowledge, ideas, and skills to exploit Google tools for educational purposes: collecting data, making research, cooperating, sharing information, designing activities, shaping learning contents, planning lessons, managing projects, giving or getting feedback, stimulating curiosity and creativity.

By the end of the training, participants will feel more confident and creative with the use of tech tools in education. They will have created a set of tailor-made activities with the use of tools such as Google Classroom, Slides, Docs, Forms, My Maps, Earth, Arts & Culture, and YouTube and will feel motivated to propose them to their pupils once back in their classrooms.

Among the various activities conducted during the course, I found the exploration of Google My Maps to be particularly fascinating. The hands-on experience of using this tool provided me with valuable insights into its features and capabilities for creating interactive maps.
