Tech Coach Log: 2.24.16


Wednesday was very successful.  I helped a new teacher take the Google Classroom plunge.  After some early hiccups, this teacher ended the day with a good grasp on how to use it.  From there, I assisted a Spanish teacher in using Google Forms to create rubrics for student Spanish presentations. In addition, I was able to inservice high school social studies teachers in using Doc Hub in order to have students do DBQ assignments digitally.  After school, I conducted a seminar for teachers to learn to use the Snagit Chrome Extension to create screencast videos in preparation to build flipped lessons.

What I learned

It appears I jumped the gun as a Google Apps Admin.  I enabled Hangouts to open automatically on startup.  While a handful of teachers use it, the majority were perplexed.  I haven't trained enough students to use it responsibly.
