Design Document: Proposed In-Service Course
This course design document described a Google Apps for Education adoption in-service series for school teachers, administrators and staff. Rather than focus on the software,participants would learn the skills and patterns needed to collaborate on document development in a “flipped practicum” approach: eLearning would convey skills and content to individual learners in online sessions, and Learners would later meet in person and online to apply this material in school-based teams to collaborate on a an update to the district technology plan. This proposal was developed as part of an graduate study course, to course specifications, but also invited for submission by a local school district.
Ultimately other priorities prevented adoption, but I am continuing to work with the model when I consult for other schools adopting Google Apps for Education, and am developing an online course to support this offering.
