With apologies…

Apologies to those of you who follow this blog… and/or who usually receive the weekly APP of the Week e-mail.

It has been a long difficult year, and when I returned to work at the start of May, I have to admit that I completely forgot about getting going with these postings and the App of the Week. I was a little overwhelmed…

Then, I made the decision to retire and everything about my work life since then has been focused on wrapping up and leaving things in good shape for my successor.

I am delighted to announce that Ms. Adrienne Kennedy will be taking over as ACL of Library and Technology Integration at ESA.

I do not know yet whether she will continue with this blog and the App of the Week feature, as we haven’t had a chance to discuss things like that.

Regardless, I trust you have found the blog and the blasts useful and helpful in your teaching practice.

Take care.  Enjoy!

A Framework for Professional Learning with G Suite

From Shake Up Learning:

I have delivered hundreds of hours of professional learning over the last ten years or so, and a vast portion of those sessions have focused on using Google tools in the classroom. I’ve learned a lot of lessons as a Google trainer, A LOT! So to help other trainers, I put together a framework for Google PD that I hope others will benefit from. I’m sharing the order that I teach G Suite apps as well as sharing free resources and tips along the way.

Of course, every teacher/trainer is different, with a different personality and different strengths and weaknesses; and every group of participants varies as well.

I presented a lot of these ideas last summer at ISTE 2017. Feel free to peruse the slides from my presentation, which contains much more than I can cover in one blog post.
