Use the skills from this class to increase the efficiency or effectiveness of your teaching.

Part I

In Part I of this project, you will document your plan for trying out a Google technology learned during this course. This could fall into any of the following categories:

  • Lesson Plan
    • where students use the technology (e.g. Google Search, Docs, Sheets, ..)
    • where you use the technology for delivery or preparation (e.g. Chrome, Search, You Tube, Slides, Maps, Cultural Institute)
  • Communication plan for your students, parents, or school community (e.g. Google Sites, Groups, Gmail, Calendar, Hangouts, G+ Community)
  • Collaboration plan with other educators or administrators (e.g. Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, ..)
  • Administrative tasks plan (Drive, Classroom, Forms, Calendar)
  • Other!

Part II

In Part II of this project, you will complete one of the following:

  • Option A: Report how you implemented your plan in Part I
    • Relections of how it went
    • What went well
    • What you'd do differently next time
    • Evidence of implementation (video, student, sample, photo, etc.)
  • Option B: An implementation plan for a second technology (same choices as Part I above)

Sample Project

Note: if you use one of these, please make a copy and edit it to match your situation.

Feedback, assessment, and grading

  • This project is intended for your own benefit, since we believe the best way to solidify knowledge is by practicing it! Therefore we will not be assigning letter or number grades to your work.
  • In order to earn a certificate of completion for this course, you must submit both parts I and II of this final project.
  • If you would like feedback on your work, or would like to see a sample of other learners' projects, we encourage you to share them on the class Google+ Community.
