Learning about Google

            Learning about  Google for free

Simplek12 is a learning community of educators which I belong to.
I have learnt a lot thanks to their  webinars and I have paid for two more years so that I can have access to their webinars if I cannot  see them, in addition it is  a welcoming community where teachers share ideas and information about new web tools.
Now that summer has arrived  I feel I have more time to view the recordings of what I could see during the school year. Some events have been recorded and are open to anyone . Here you can see some interesting  webinars about  Google and tips for educators. The events took part in June this year and were really engaging.
The more I learn  the more I realize that education needs these new tools which can help me develop as a teacher who supports learners studying in the XXI century.

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP

DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP...........................WHY IT MATTERS

Today educators are involved in not only teaching their subjects, they are asked to teach their learners to be learners and citizens and thus they need to know more about their rights and the digital world. 





Interesting documents can be found online to learn about the importance of  teaching about  digital citizenship  in the first years of school with our  learners. 

Resources  worth checking
