Hi everyone -- +EdTechTeam is a Google for Education Professional Development Partner in California/Nevada (and across the country/globe). We will be supporting the Applied Digital Skills curriculum by offering FREE half day workshops in the Las Vegas area to help upper elementary/secondary teachers get started using the curriculum in their classrooms.

We are looking for host sites (schools/venues/etc) that might be willing to host a 3 hour workshop on campus. We are looking at dates in late August onward. We can't pay any facility fees as we are not charging for registration, but we will have beverages and an awesome time!

If interested in possibly being a host site, please reach out to me directly at chris@edtechteam.com

Best-
Chris

In the spring of 2016, our district decided it was ready to go 1:1 with Chromebooks district-wide during the next school year. With that decision, I threw out a crazy idea to my principal and superintendent: “What if we created a student help desk to repair the Chromebooks?” Much to my surprise and delight, they thought it was a great idea. The principal and I worked on a new class schedule for me, a high school social studies teacher at the time, to have a couple class periods of students as a help desk. Our initial goals for these classes were to provide students with real-life experience, have students research tech tips/tricks for our teachers, and reduce the financial impact of repairs.
