IC Hosts First Google Bootcamp

Ryan Mckinnie

IC hosted their first Google Bootcamp on May 11 aimed at helping educators develop their Google Suite skills using Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Classroom and more. Led by Google certified trainers and IC faculty, Ryan Mckinnie and Hannah Thrailkill, the all-day Saturday session focused on teachers learning about digital citizenship, communication and collaboration and developing learning engagements that utilize the power of technology. The final portion of the PD session was an exam developed by Google to test educators’ knowledge of the G Suite tools for education. A majority of the participants passed the exam and are now Google Certified educators level 1.
