Description

Series Overview: Google’s Applied Digital Skills curriculum is an online site with ready-to-use video lessons that teach digital skills that have immediate, real-life application. The majority of the lessons use apps found in Google Drive. In this three-part series, we will cover the basics of Google Drive, focusing on why it is so useful for adult education. We will review four apps included in Google Drive: Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. We will explore the Google’s Applied Digital Skills lessons so that each participant can develop their own learning plan towards G Suite Certification, and discuss ways of doing the same with students.

This series is designed for people with little or no previous experience with Google Drive.

Sessions include:

  • Session 1: Google Drive and Google Docs 5/22/20
  • Session 2: Google Sheets and Google Slides 6/5/20
  • Session 3: Google Forms and Google Keep 6/19/20

Session 2 Google Sheets and Google Slides In this session, we will briefly review Google Drive and then go in depth in how to create, share, and edit Google Sheets and Slides. Google Sheets are similar to Microsoft Excel which is used primarily for data organizing and math formulas; and Google Slides is similar to Microsoft PowerPoint which is used for making presentations, organizing information, and making graphic rich documents. We will discuss how Google Sheets and Google Slides can be used both for general productivity and as tools for instruction. All participants will log into their own Google Drive, make a folder for the sessions activities and make their own Google Sheets and Google Slide presentation.

Presenter: Nell Eckersley
Audience: ESOL, ABE, Pre-HSE, and HSE instructors
