Gmail, Contacts, and Calendar

Course canceled due to low registration

This course will focus on the use of Gmail, Contacts, and Calendar as a way to become more efficient in completing your daily tasks. In the past few months, a new user interface(UI)was pushed out to Gmail, Contacts, and Calendar. These changes are designed to enhance the use of each tool as well as provide better interconnectivity between applications. Participants will be engaged in learning about the many different aspects of new look of Gmail, Contacts, and Calendar and how they can be implemented within their school. We will look at ways teachers and schools are using these tools to make their lives more efficient. 

The goal of this course is to promote the use of these tools that help promote success for administrators, teachers, and most importantly students. This course is designed to transform the traditional learning environment beyond the classroom walls. The course will consist of online modules based on topic. Participants taking the course for credit will be required to complete all modules. This course is intended for multiple audiences. 

Course Outline

This is a self-paced course with three modules you can proceed through at your own pace. Each module will consist of reading materials, videos, additional support materials and a series of activities to build your skill set and provide you with an opportunity to apply the newly acquired skill to your own personal classroom setting. Building a skill set first and then applying that skill set to an authentic environment is shown to create a better understanding of how a tool can be used more effectively on a personal level by teachers and students. You are welcome to complete each module at any time during the course.

I will conduct a Google Hangout as needed to cover any questions and or problems that arise throughout the course. Additional support will be provided to individuals within the class via a discussion board, emails, a hangout, or even a phone call if necessary.
