There will be several opportunities to see how you might use these tools to work personally as well with colleagues and students. Participants will learn some organization and productivity strategies for these tools. We will share some of our favorite add-ons that make these tools even more effective.

This hands-on workshop will focus on using and creating forms. Forms can be used to create quizzes, gather information, and to have people sign up for events. Google Keep is another productivity tool that will help you organize your To-Do lists or take notes. Participants will also learn the basics of Google Drawing and how to integrate it into other Google Products. These three tools have many uses across many different Google Apps.
