Do you manage Google Apps for Education (GAFE) for your school? Have you configured your Google Domain services and settings to EDU Best Practices? The default admin console does not come configured for a school environment. This one day technical retreat will begin by walking through how to migrate to GAFE and ensure you’re going down the right road for your school's Google journey. Even if you’re already on Google, there are still many opportunities to assure that GAFE is being built on solid domain foundations. The day continues with a deep dive into the admin console and what services and settings you really need to change for your staff and more importantly, students. We’ll include tips and tricks for user provisioning and management. Register today for the Google Admin Console Technical Retreat- January 25 https://www.escweb.net/tx_esc_06/catalog/session.aspx?session_id=304540

Bootstrap Day 1: Video Game Mathematics and Coding - Students of the 21st century relate to technology more easily than any generation before it. Video gaming is only one field that explores coding through mathematics. On this first day of the workshop series, you will explore coordinates in Cartesian space and identify the coordinates for the characters in a game at various points in time. You will be introduced to set-mapping representations for functions in which the function object exists as a means of translating points from a domain to a range. Students build on their fundamental math skills to enhance their abilities with computational thinking and so will you in this session. https://www.escweb.net/tx_esc_06/catalog/session.aspx?session_id=270934
