FLIP this Friday (April 11): Google Tools

We hope you’ll join us this coming Friday, April 11th at 12PM in Surge III 1310 for this month’s Future of Learning in Practice (FLIP) workshop, at which Dan Comins and Steve Faith will present Google Tools.

As you are no doubt aware, all faculty, students, and staff at UC Davis have access to Google Apps for Education as a part of their standard UC Davis accounts, including Google Drive, Google Plus, Google Hangouts, and numerous other useful Google applications.

In the workshop on Friday, we’ll discuss educational uses for Google Drive, including ways to use Google Forms, as well as third-party apps and add-ins that can be used with documents in Google Drive. In particular, we’ll look at an interesting application called Flubaroo that allows for grading within Google Spreadsheets. Steve and Dan will also demonstrate how to create and use Google Hangouts, which is Google’s answer to Skype and Adobe Connect.

Steve and Dan will also answer questions about particular Google Tools/Services that you may have heard about, but aren’t sure quite if they meet your pedagogical goals.

As always, please bring your laptops so that you can try out these tools as we walk through their features together.
