RRISD ITS Department Busy Planning First Google Ninja Academy November 2, 2013 at RRHS


Who in RRISD could learn to better integrate Google into their daily work? Everyone and anyone. Google Apps for Education (GAFE) has become so embedded in the way Round Rock ISD organizes and communicates, that it is important to continue to sharpen our saw in regards to how this tool-set can help us meet the needs of our students.

With that in mind the Instructional Technology Department is in the process of crafting a day of learning about all things GAFE. The department will be utilizing techniques and resources as old as email and as current as G+ Communities, Hangouts, Apps, Extensions. Sure, technology will be used. But technology is not the focus. Communication, creativity, and collaboration are the essential skills that we may find with broadening our knowledge of GAFE.

The Google Ninja Academy promises to help you learn tools that will broaden your network, make you more efficient, and most importantly raise the achievement of you students. Click the picture above or right here to sign up.
