She created a Google form titled- "Eliana's Summer Pet Sitting and Mail Collection Service" then she had her mother post it to her friends to collect potential customers' information in a Google Sheet. As you can imagine, I was beaming with pride and thought you would like to hear about this real-life application being made at such a young age. This is proof that if we spend the time to train our kids to use these creative digital tools, they will do remarkable things! I spent this school year teaching and developing a curriculum for an elementary version of a "Chrome Squad" for our building. My goal was to develop a resource to train kids to use G Suite using basic language that kids can understand. I have a "Kids Teaching Kids" type of program which has now evolved into my kids actually teaching our busy teachers to use Google tools as well. I started with 10 kids and now have over 30 kids in our Chrome Squad. If you are interested, I can get you more information on my ebook coming out over the summer- "Chromebooks for kids- Training your Elementary Chrome Squad."
