Google Apps Advanced Integration

This course will build on the foundation course, OEDT  5088 Google Apps in the Clsrm.  Educators will learn to use and then integrate Google tools from outside the core suite such as Google Earth, Google Maps, Blogger, Picasa, You Tube, Chrome, and advanced power search strategies into their use of the core suite of Google Apps for Education tools, which includes Google Documents, Gmail, Sites, and Calendar. Educators will develop lessons that integrate multiple tools to increase collaboration, support mastery learning, and student engagement. Educators will also examine the use of Google Apps Tools to collect, display, and analyze formative and summative assessment data.
