Hello teachers, how is your Moodle course looking today? Is it looking fabulous or does it only look okay? If you want to spiff it up and really make it shine, come to our Moodle workshop, it starts at nine!  We help you get started and show you all the neat features, then provide you time to explore which is appreciated by most teachers!

Good teachers know that the classroom, the physical learning environment, must be conducive to learning.  That is why they spend time planning, organizing and furnishing their classrooms. These same preparations should also be done for your online/digital learning environment!  This session will teach you how to use some of the Google for Education tools such as Classroom and Sites to create the digital face of your classroom!
