Our district is implementing a new learning management system called Canvas. The last month or so of my time has been spent on implementing Canvas. Instructure, the company that owns the Canvas product, recommends a 60 day initial implementation of the product. We didn't have 60 days, in fact, we didn't have 6 days! Our set-up process was about a day. We went the next week or so creating master courses for all of our high school courses. We uploaded syllabi, common assessments, etc. We created week by week layouts for each course - we are talking around 250 courses. Fast forward a couple weeks, we are still adjusting to the hang of things within the software. Check out the video below - this is were we are currently!
In terms of Google, I received confirmation that I was accepted as a Google Certified Trainer. This is an awesome accomplishment that I have worked towards since June. I even received a badge :)
