Going Google For FYE

Each year I am unpleasantly surprised with the situation in every class when I see that most teacher candidates have no idea what they own on their gmail account. I spend the first week of the semester wowing them with the tools they have in Google Drive for researching, collaborating, interacting, exploring, drawing, and what not!

As a counselor of KDP chapter, I suggested running a tutorial for KDP members and the first year students on campus a Going Google 4 FYE presentation to enlighten them at the beginning of the academic year to actively use the tools. On September 19th, I conducted a workshop. We had a great turnout and witnessed a huge interest in how to use Google Drive and its apps.

I wish had read this article from Life Hacker 8 Clever Hacks To Get The Most Out of Google Drive to educate them mor about Google Drive's useful features.  Next time I will include this information in my presentation!
