Google Classroom, Drive and Calendar Overview
This is for new to Google, or relatively new to Google, participants. An hour is not a lot of time for any one of these resources, so I may just ask for input on what people want or need to see.  An hour of Q & A would be fine, if that's what the group wants. I can also do a brief run-down on each. If the attendees are mainly new employees not familir with Google, that may be best. We'll see what people want! Anybody with answers is welcome to join in!

3D Cameras and Bringing the World to School
An introduction to how 3 cameras work and what you can do with them. As well as the easiest ways to host and share your products. I will have 2 cameras that the district owns, both of which can be checked out for school use. If the group is small enough we'll take some video and/or pictures and I'll show you the easiest way to host videos (youtube) and pictures (kuula). If you want to do that, a Windows PC with the Ricoh Theta V software installed will be necessary. The basic app (middle column, top row of computer applications) could be installed to save a little time.

We will go over the basics of designing objects Sketchup Free, which can then be exported into a file appropriate for 3D printing. This is a resource approved for student use in GBAPS. It is web-based so it works on chromebooks as well as teacher workstations, and can produce a file that you can print if you have access to a 3D printer.
