Our most popular trainings include: 
  • Blood borne Pathogens Training

Google Apps Training for Students in the Student Personalized Learning System

Recently added to the Student Personalized Learning System is content that students can explore dealing with Google Apps.  This content is similar to the Google 101 training for teachers in the Teacher Training System.  Teachers, administrators and technology teachers of school districts could assign any or all of the modules to their students and can check out the content by logging into the Student Personalized Learning system using the username and password that they use for the training system where they have taken mandatory trainings (we just recently updated our servers to be more secure with passwords so you will have to reset your password in the teacher training system to get in if you have not already done so).

Once logged into the Student Learning system, click on Modules then Technology Literacy.  If you wish to use these with students or have any questions please contact Denise Krefting (dkrefting@aeapdonline.org) or Melissa Wicklund (mwicklund@aeapdonline.org).

Here are the listings of different Google Apps modules:
