I have a 3rd student that took what I taught her about using G Suite, specifically from your episode #9 about Google forms and applied it to an “Entrepreneurial” venture! She created a Google form titled- “Eliana’s Summer Pet Sitting and Mail Collection Service” then she had her mother post it to her friends to collect potential customers’ information in a Google Sheet. As you can imagine, I was beaming with pride and thought you would like to hear about this real-life application being made at such a young age. This is proof that if we spend the time to train our kids to use these creative digital tools, they will do remarkable things!

I spent this school year teaching and developing a curriculum for an elementary version of a “Chrome Squad” for our building. My goal was to develop a resource to train kids to use G Suite using basic language that kids can understand. I have a “Kids Teaching Kids” type of program which has now evolved into my kids actually teaching our busy teachers to use Google tools as well.

I started with 10 kids and now have over 30 kids in our Chrome Squad. If you are interested, I can get you more information on my ebook coming out over the summer- “Chromebooks for kids- Training your Elementary Chrome Squad.”

    Hey any idea how long the certification test discount is good? I am getting married this week, so it is not really idea to take the test this week, but it is on my summer to do list.

    This engaging podcast just enough to give me strategies to become more intentional about how I use Google. I like the fact that I can immediately turn around what I learn. What a privilege it is to listen to you two. Thank you so much Kasey and Matt!

    When I try to find the Doc Story Builder, I get a page that Python 2.5 is no longer available. Any resolution for this?

    • Sarah Reichard

      Apparently the platform (Python 2.5) expired. I was really looking forward to using this as well and hoping someone has an alternative suggestion.
