Google Sheets often gets a reputation for the “difficult” or maybe the “least used" app in G-Suite waffle. But that doesn’t need to be the case all the time! In today’s episode we will share ways students and teachers currently use Sheets in the classroom and then ways you can tech it up a notch when it comes to your knowledge and usage of Google Sheets.
We are excited to haveEmily McDonald as today's guest from Chattanooga, Tennessee!
Please welcome Shawna Farley to Somethin' to Tech About!
Shawna currently works as the Academic Coach and grades 3-5 EIP (Early Intervention Program) teacher at West Chatham Elementary with the Savannah Chatham County Public School System. She has been an educator for 17 years and has recently achieved Google Certified Educator Levels 1&2. Shawna loves integrating technology into everything she teaches. She describes her tech style as mostly student driven. She has discovered that giving students choice and voice in not only how they learn but how they share what they learn has brought about an elevated level of excitement and engagement for students.
Shawna has shared some great resources that are mentioned in the podcast, so be sure to take a look and let us and Shawna know how you plan to use some of her samples in the comments!
