Wake County Public Schools + MobileMind

2018 Google Capacity Report

Leader Reflection: Train-the-Trainer Workshop

“As a district just moving to Chromebooks, these trainers will be vital in rolling the devices out to our elementary schools first, as part of a large district initiative (22,000+ deployment) and then as middle and high schools begin adding these devices as well. Our hope is they will be strong advocates in their buildings to support teachers and encourage more digital learning….

This training provided our participants with a variety of helpful activities. In the morning, she spent time with a strong overview of the entire Google Trainer program. Then in the afternoon, she gave them time to work in teams on the various components of the application. It was time well spent for them, as the activities were well balanced, there was no time wasted, and all the participants expressed appreciation for the opportunity, which does not always occur in professional learning.

We appreciate the support from Google and MobileMind. David Harrington from Google reached out to us as he discovered our planned roll out, to ask how Google could help, so we definitely appreciate Google keeping tabs on us. We would love further opportunities to collaborate and learn with Google.”
