Google, Google, Google! Learn how to merge the power of Google with the versatility of Schoology. Participants will learn how both instructors and students can easily access live Google content from anywhere in the Schoology platform. We will look at using Google Drive (in both the web and IOS versions) to create assignments and collect student work that results in a paperless, organized workflow. In addition, learn how to embed Google Presentations and Forms to enhance your instruction.

Session Objectives:
1) Install and Connect the Google Drive Resource App in Schoology.
2) Understand the workflow of moving Google content to Courses and Resource Collections from Schoology Resources.
3) Create, edit, and delete Google files from within Schoology.
4) Collect student work created in Google Apps and grade both live and static versions.
5) Embed Google Forms, Slides, Docs, and more into the Schoology Rich Text Editor.
