Collaboration is an important 21st century skill (and is one of the 4C’s) that students and teachers need to work effectively with others and now this can be done both virtually and in person thanks to tools and technologies developed by Google. In this course, students will design collaborative learning activities and assignments using Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Forms, and Google Jamboard. Students will design a website using Google Sites and design a lesson using Google Slides. Students will describe how they will implement their technical and teaching strategies in writing or through video demonstrations. Students will walk away with new knowledge and skills using Google tools for collaborative teaching and learning.
This course can be taken individually and is part of the Learning and Teaching in a K-12 Digital Classroom Series and the Google for Teachers Series.

The material we learned in this course was really helpful for someone like me who has dabbled with the Google tools in the past, but never used them constantly. I intended on taking my newly gained skills, share them with my coworkers, teach them to my students, and utilize them in my classroom.
The strength of the class is how each module builds on the next to form a completed project.
