Staff from Red River College took part in a pair of day-long workshops this week, to learn more about how Google technologies can support teaching and learning.
The Google Workshop for Educators sessions took place June 4 and 5, and focused on such Google Apps tools as Google+, Google Hangouts, Google Power Searching, Google Docs/Drive, Forms and Presentations, and Bloggers.
About 25 RRC staff took part in the June 5 workshop, which was hosted by Michael Wacker, a Google Certified Teacher and Certified Google Apps Trainer. The June 4 workshop was for external attendees — kindergarten to Grade 12 teachers from across Manitoba.
Participants will be expected to share their knowledge as mentors within their departments and to act as liaisons for training and support with the Centre for Teaching Excellence, Innovation and Research (TEIR).
