I’m sharing my knowledge of google sheets at the DLD day in March. I’m a “veteran” user of Excel and have a lot of ideas on how to use excel (google sheets) to make our teaching lives more organized and easier to manage. My idea of a workshop is to make everyone have fun learning and get excited about a tool that can change how you look at students and that huge pile of data.At the elementary level, we use google sheets to record benchmark data on our students. We also try to use them to track data on behavior, progress on subjects as well as graphing important issues for discussion at CPT and CST. Teachers might want to understand how to build, sort, calculate and graph data in spreadsheets. I am hoping to also review some of the common formulas, conditional formatting and printing "limitations" that are present in Google Sheets.
