GoogleApsThe G-DRSD EdTech team will host a free community tech night for all members of the Groton-Dunstable community this Thursday, January 16th at 7 p.m. This is an opportunity for all Groton and Dunstable residents to come to the high school library and learn how our school community is integrating and innovating with technology in the classroom. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about technology applications and devices students and teachers are using daily.

This session will be the first of a monthly series of community tech nights that feature different topics each month. At this writing, we’ll host community tech nights on the third Thursday of every month. Our first session, Google Apps for Education and Your Students, will center around the Google Apps for Education suite of apps and provide participants with a clear understanding of how students and teachers are leveraging these tools in the classroom. We will cover applications such as GMail, Google Drive, and Google Calendar. The session will provide time for learning about the applications, questions, and a hands-on workshop with the tools. All of these sessions are targeted towards beginners and those interested in learning more about technology and how technology is being integrated in an academic context.

Participants are welcome to bring their own device, or we can provide one for you. The session will take place at the high school library and run about an hour and a half at length. We look forward to connecting and sharing with community members and parents of students.
