Google and Microsoft for Education – EPB-NT3
Europass Florence

DESCRIPTION
Most of us use Google on a daily basis primarily as a search tool or as an email provider. Few people, however, are aware of the potential Google provides as a source of tools and applications, which can also be of great educational use inside and outside the classroom. The first week of the course aims at guiding educators in finding such new effective ways to incorporate a variety of Google tools and applications into the classroom. The course will commence with techniques around searching more accurately and effectively using Google. Participants will hence get familiar with the possibilities afforded by tools such as Google Classroom to connect and collaborate more effectively with students. Google Docs, Forms, and Slides will also be used to collaborate while working on educational projects using applications such as Google Earth, Google My Maps, and Google Arts and Culture. Finally, the research benefits of Google Scholar will be investigated during the week. By the end of this training, participants will have a greater practical knowledge of the educational possibilities available across the Google ecosystem and how they can plan projects, connect with students and help to unleash student creativity.

The second week of the course will allow teachers to discover the enormous power of the Microsoft 365 platform, revealing tools and techniques, which they can incorporate into their teaching. The course will cover all the most relevant programs of the Microsoft family: Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Sway, Stream, One Note, Teams, One Drive and Share Point:
- Although applications such as Word and PowerPoint are already widely used, participants will learn how to harness the more advanced techniques of classic tools. Excel is often vastly underestimated, so teachers will discover how to analyze data in a faster and more effective way, learning how to filter and format spreadsheets, and automate functions with the use of macros.
- Sway is a relatively unknown program, and this course will demonstrate how to create impressive interactive presentations for use in the classroom, with a focus on the simple process of sharing them with students and colleagues. In addition to these presentations, Stream allows teachers to create a dynamic video database as a platform to share video lessons and content with students in a more controlled manner.
- One Note is an extremely useful tool that allows participants to deliver lessons to their classes in a more interactive way, creating stimulating and interesting content for your students. Teachers will also become familiar with Teams, an application that connects students and colleagues in group conferences, enabling clear and effective communication between separate groups.
- The course will also show participants how to use One Drive as a powerful cloud storage space, allowing teachers to access their content everywhere. Finally, it will be revealed how to use SharePoint to create websites for use as a sharing platform for all educational content.
