The feedback we received seemed to indicate that Zoom and Google were used the most in the classroom. This workshop will cover Zoom and Google. It will NOT cover the basics of how to use Google and Zoom. That information is available elsewhere (YouTube, Google, etc). Instead we structured the workshop around specific questions people submitted. If you did not forward a question you can ask your question during the workshop.
