Google for School Leaders
  • What does it mean to be a Google school?

    • We start from the basics and take a high level look at what it means to be a Google school

    • We explain how Google Apps for Education works, what Apps are included in the ‘core suite’ and what other ‘non core’ Google Apps you can use

    • We cover a lot of basic stuff to be sure all attendees are starting from the same level such as: Do you need a Google Server? Can you use Google in your school if you are running on a MS base? Do all students need an account on your domain? Can one teacher run Google Classroom if we are not a Google School? etc. etc.

  • How can Google help me and our leadership team in our jobs?

    • This is where we get into Forms, shared Docs, research, etc. We focus in on the best practices for using Google Drive and Docs specifically for school management with specific examples of using forms, spreadsheets and more

    • We also look at using Google tools for:

      • Leadership teams

      • Accreditation (for example by CIS WASC and NEASC which is something schools go through every 5 and 10 years and with Google Apps this process has become much more efficient and effective)

      • Work flows, meeting minutes

      • Structure and Google Drive folder expectations and protocols
