Google for Education Roadshow on campus Dec 8

Representatives from Google’s Higher Ed team were in Kelly Commons on Saturday, Dec 8 and presented to adjunct faculty about the best use of Google Apps for:

Workflow Optimization:  Google Calendar, Classroom & Course Kit
Communication:  Gmail, Google Chat & Google Meet
Collaboration & Teamwork:  Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive & Jamboard
Immersive Learning:  Tour Creator (allows you to make your own Virtual Reality tours)

Google representatives taught the group tips and techniques which enable us to use Google more efficiently. This event was sponsored by the Faculty Technology Committee whose focus is on adjunct technology support. 15 adjuncts attended along with Graduate students. It was a productive and informative workshop, specifically targeting higher education instructors. Attendees left with a variety of ideas of how they can use technology more productively and how to enhance their current teaching methods by blending technology into their current content.

Special thanks to Dr Adam Koehler, Chair of the Faculty Development Committee and Dr Shawna BuShell, Chair of the Faculty Technology Committee for co-sponsoring this event and bringing Google to Manhattan College.
