This introductory workshop will help teachers and support staff identify Chromebook features such as the webcam, microphone, and keyboard shortcuts. The participants will be guided to recognize, distinguish, install, and use apps, extensions, and themes as well as find each in the Google Play and Chrome Web Stores. Hands-on exercises and examples of classroom activities will engage the group in exploring more and different ways to use Chromebooks effectively in adult education. As with all OTAN face-to-face workshops, this workshop can be tailor-made to fit the needs of the host or requesting site.
Prerequisites: All participants must have basic computer skills and know their logon for a public Google (@gmail.com) or Google Workspace (@district.org) email address.
An OTAN Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to those that have pre-registered and attend at least 75% of the scheduled time.
OTAN workshops may be requested, customized, and scheduled by qualifying adult education agencies for their staff as targeted professional development.
OTAN workshops may be conducted as a “hands-on”, where participants are asked to provide their own devices, as “presentations” where a product or ideas are introduced, or as a discussion where all are encouraged to participate in a conversation around a specific idea or topic.
The desired outcome of every OTAN workshop is that participants will have a working understanding of the application or topics discussed and modeled.
