This past week, the Dearborn Teacher University hosted its final Year One PD workshop for the 2017-18 school year. This month’s topic was on Google Apps. Troy Patterson, Director of Technology and Media Services provided a hands-on overview of how to efficiently utilize Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar and other Google apps available for educators to access through the Google Suite for Education. The session included opportunities for the participants to try out the new Gmail platform and ask questions.
Based on the overall feedback, our teachers understand how important the integration of technology can be in working with their students and in their classrooms. Mr. Patterson encouraged all participants to reach out to one of the two district tech coaches for additional support. The Tech Coaches blog offers tips, explanations and the ability to schedule an appointment with one of them to work with teachers and students. https://techcoaches.dearbornschools.org/
We would like to wish all of our Dearborn Teacher University Mentees, Mentors and Presenters a wonderful summer break!
We look forward to working with you again in the 2018-19 school year.
