Let Google Sites Be Your Digital Assistant
School websites are typically created to share information with parents and students. But what about the teachers? Learn how to use Google Sites to let teachers schedule their own computer lab hours or to check out mobile carts. Sites could also be used to share professional development resources or to disseminate information to your school staff. In this hands-on session, you’ll learn how Google Sites can be an efficient digital assistant when powered by Calendars, Forms, and the script FormMule to automate many administrative tasks. Please bring a laptop to this session.  This session is best suited for attendees who are familiar with creating Google Sites, Calendars, and Forms.
