Fall Parent Online Tools Workshop

  • Are you a parent wanting to deepen your knowledge of how to use Google apps to aid you in homeschooling?
  • Would you like to know how to help your student create attractive Slides and Docs?
  • This new hands-on course will give you the basics on how to use these tools to add new functionality and efficiency to your homeschool. You’ll hear about a concept, and then try it!

“In my class with Christine Echeverri we embarked upon a tour of  Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Classroom,  Google Slides, and even Zoom.  I had been navigating these platforms with scant knowledge, and her tips, tricks, and shortcuts have made a huge difference; I am on my way to becoming Google literate! Surprisingly, I am finding these platforms so much more usable, useful, and even enjoyable. I highly recommend this class!
