Purpose of the Professional Study
The focus of this professional study is for administrators to learn how they can integrate digital tools into their day to day tasks. Administrators will focus on applying Google Suite for Education as it relates to collaborating and communicating with their teachers, students, parents, and the community. The objective is to create strategies that administrators could use with the digital tools, that will eventually become a model for their teachers in the classroom.
Administrators will learn how to use social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, websites, and blogs to share resources and showcase their schools with their parents and the community.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT THE #GAMEONADMIN PLU
"Thank you SO much for this course! it was a very rewarding experience. Every module helped to prepare me for the Google Certification exam. The assignments will also assist me with preparing our teachers for the upcoming school year. I will continue to practice over the next few weeks. But, I feel much more prepared for our beginning of the year Technology professional development where I will introduce all of these components to our teachers.
I will probably reach out with additional G-Suite Admin questions, though. Thanks again!"
"Thank you Eujon, for your insightful videos and information shared with us through this PLU. I enjoyed the opportunity to explore apps and extensions that I had never even heard of before. I picked out a few that I am going to try next year in my classroom that I believe will be very helpful to me and my students.
I will be teaching math for the upcoming school year and am planning on applying for any math coach positions that become available in my district. This information will be extremely helpful to my students next year and hopefully in the future any teachers that I am able to lead."
"Thank you for such a highly skilled and professional class. This has been a rewarding experience and although it seems like it was a crash course, it still was effective. dxcdcThis up coming year I will be teaching basic social to 4th and 5th graders. I will get ample opportunities to practice using Google."
