Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Educators and Administrators will learn how to leverage Google Forms to send out personalized emails, create personalized documents that are shareable, and automatically sort the artifacts in folders in google drives. Teachers and Administrators will use both formMule and autoCrat extensions for Google Sheets to create personalized documents. I have used these tools as both a teacher, and digital content lead to improve success in my classroom, as well as instructional rounds with teachers. I have decreased failure rate in my classroom by half by communicating more frequently and easily with parents and guardians. I have opened lines of communications and shared data with my peers to increase success amongst my peers.
