A deep dive into the technical aspects of G Suite for Education
The Google Admin Bootcamp is a technical deep dive into the administrative settings of the Google admin console.
I began learning about the Google admin console after becoming frustrated by the policies of my own school. While these policies were IT friendly, they weren’t designed with teachers and students in mind.
As your district relies more heavily on tools like Google Drive, Gmail, and Classroom, it is essential that IT administrators stay up to date on the latest features and best practices G Suite administration.
This is not a typical system administrator workshop. During our time together I will help you optimize your devices and systems for learning and safety.
“…The Google Admin Bootcamp was excellent. I learned more than expected and had all my questions answered on the spot. The materials on his training website are well organized and thorough and I find myself referring back to them constantly throughout the school year. If you’re a CTO, systems admin or technology specialist with your hands in Google’s Admin panel, this workshop is for you!” Janet DeSenzo, Technology Integration Specialist, Vernon Township School District
The Google Admin Bootcamp is a one-day workshop that address common challenges for schools who are using G Suite and Chromebooks:
- How do we secure our users and information?
- What policies should we have in place to ensure our Chromebooks are being used for learning?
- How do we manage teachers and administrators who leave the district?
- How do we comply with FOIA and FERPA regulations?
- What is the age-appropriate configuration for Drive, Classroom, Hangouts, and other core G Suite services
Conversation and discussion is a key aspect of the Google Admin Bootcamp. Being able to discuss technology policies with a group of 15-20 system administrators is a perfect opportunity to reflect on what your district is doing and identifying potential policy improvements.
“John’s workshops and bootcamps are clear and hands-on, providing practical and step-by-step instruction that immediately can be applied to your use of Google management systems. I have attended several of his workshops, even repeating some, because Google is always changing, and it’s also helpful as a refresher. Highly recommended!” Daniel Cook, Technology Director, Kalamazoo Christian Schools
