*Pre-workshop preparation: Be ready with your computer and any other devices you may use in your day-to-day work!
*When registering, you will be asked to choose the strand that best fits your needs:
Novice: only recently started grappling with wide range of digital tools & communication methods, feels frustrated or unsure about tech on a regular basis.
Intermediate: has some experience with digital tools & communication, feels that there are ways they could be more efficient but needs support to get there and may still struggle with some technology.
Target Audience: K-12 educators, instructional coaches, administrators, and anyone else working “in” a school.
With the deluge of new platforms, information, and communication techniques, many of us have been struggling to stay afloat. In addition to everything else being asked of us, it can be hard to be proactive about being organized and “digitally tidy.” With a differentiated approach, these bite-sized workshops will not only make your day-to-day work less stressful and more seamless, but also serve you well no matter what the future brings.
⦁ Getting to “inbox zero” and other email management techniques

⦁ Organizing your digital files & folders (Google Drive and more)
