Today we had a great time looking at several of Google’s products and how you can maximize your productivity in Google with Google Photos and organizing your files in the first of our Google Workshop series. Take a look at the slides below to find out some ways that you can use Google more effectively.
This summer, the Innovation Foundry will be offering a series of three Google Workshops. Google Suite offers a powerful set of tools that can enhance productivity, creativity, and collaboration. Each workshop will include three one-hour sessions that focus on a specific tool or set of tools, allowing you to come to the sessions that you are most interested in.
