GesYES Facilitator Weekly Message 10/03/18
Hi GenYES Facilitators,
Last week I had the pleasure of traveling to the Prince George’s County and preparing facilitators in ten new schools. These ten wonderful teachers plowed through a four-hour after school training to prepare for their upcoming GenYES class. Welcome to the GenYES family of schools.
Few GenYES Google Website
Generation YES has been working with Google Education to produce a website and Facilitator guide aimed at STLs supporting Google Tools, Classroom, Certifications, and Chromebooks. This website and guide are now available for all of you to use. You and your STLs should check it out.
The website and tools can only be accessed through the GenYES portal. You or an STL can log in to the GenYES portal and click on the Learn tab. There you will see the Toolkit. Select Google Resources.
You will see two links: the website URL and the Teacher Guide that contains three lessons for STLs. Click the hyperlink to open the website.
Each page of the website introduces a Google tool, provides tutorials on how to use it, and suggests ways to use the tool in the classroom. To access the pages, use the dropdown menu on the top right corner of the website.
The three lessons contained in the Facilitator's Guide focus on G Suite, Google Classroom, and Chromebook Care and Support.
TAP of the Week
Today's TAP of the Week comes from Canajoharie High School! The STL troubleshooted and helped a teacher who couldn't access his school Google account.
Title:Assistsance in Google Account Sign-In
TAP Description:A teacher trying to access his school Google account was having issues and instead was only able to access his personal account.
TAP Accomplishments: A teacher was unable to sign in to his school google account. I proceeded to sign out and remove all student accounts from the page rendering him able to log in into his school Google account.
