The course was good. Has helped me with some of the more advanced features of the Google Drive, Docs, Forms and Sheets. The sections on Autocrat and Doctopus were irrelevant because my organisation doesn’t allow us to download those add-ins because of security concerns. Is there a pdf Manual to accompany this course so that I could refer back to when using the apps in the future?

I am a secondary high school teacher in my tenth year of teaching. I am currently teaching Economics, Business Studies, Commerce, Geography East Hills Girls Technology High School, and have taught Stage 6 Economics and Ancient History previously at Canterbury Boys' High School.

In my teaching experience thus far I have embraced new technologies for my lesson planning, delivery, reporting and assessment.

I have led a number of professional development days for teachers in our local teaching area and within the school in service of improving teacher knowledge of ICTs as well as delivering over 5000 hours of professional development to teachers through TTA.
