DigitalBug is a Google services program offering specialized training and assistance for school districts on the use of Google Apps for Education.
Over 70% of districts in Washington have adopted Google Apps for Education (GAFE) domains for their schools. This is exciting news, as these tools support highly engaged learners! By using these apps, students can research, collaborate, publish and produce new products in ways that they never could before!
Adopting a GAFE domain is one thing…but transitioning classrooms into learning environments where students are highly engaged with these tools takes time, patience, planning and professional development. Our expert staff can lead your district through the change process. Whether you are just starting to research Google Apps for Education or a veteran GAFE district that needs professional development for your educators, our highly qualified staff can help your organization meet its goals.
Three Levels of Service
Our services are divided into three categories, which reflect the transition that districts make as they adopt Google Apps for Education.
Southwest Washington GAFE Admins Usergroup
Are you a Google Apps for Education Administrator in a school district? The DigitalBug hosts a free usergroup at ESD 112 every other month. Most attendees are from ESD 112 member districts, but those from outside our region are welcome, too. This is an informal conversation, with the agenda created by the attendees. We discuss everything GAFE-related: domain setup, console tips and tricks, add-ons and third party software, hardware, management issues, and more. There’s a lot of knowledge and experience in the room, and attendees tell us it’s a useful way to spend a Friday morning!
If you’d like to receive reminders and invitations to our usergroup meetings, please email Katherine Livick or visit our Google+ page . We hope to see you there!
