November Tech Savvy Parenting Night

BPS Education Technology will be holding its second Tech Savvy Parenting Night, "Converting to the Cloud" on Thursday, November 18th at Marshall Simonds Middle School from 5:30pm - 7:30pm.

Converting to the Cloud is the November BPS “Digital Bootcamp Series” event and is designed to educate K-12 parents on the latest trends in educational technology.
Our focus will be on all things Google. Come and learn about how students in Burlington Public Schools are using Google Apps for Education to communicate, create, and collaborate with their teachers and classmates. This evening will be a FUN, interactive, hands on session where parents will have the opportunity to experience “life as a BPS student.” You will have the opportunity to learn about and explore the same technology tools your son or daughter uses in Burlington. You will receive an introduction to many of the apps in the Google education suite including Gmail, Google Drive (Docs, Sheets, Slides), Calendar, Sites, Blogger, Google Classroom and more! Members of the BPS Instructional Technology Team, as well as members of the Burlington High School Help Desk staff, will be available to show parents how they too can “Convert to the Cloud.”
