Their own cell phones or laptops and lots of motivation. It was all a group of committed professionals needed to dive into the Google apps Google Drive and Google Docs to boost productivity. The event was held at the American`s Embassy library, and the workshop was delivered by Casa Thomas Jefferson`s head of the Innovation and Technologies department, Carla Arena.
The program is divided in two stand alone modules. Module one: Google drive and Google docs. Module two: Google calendar and Google Keep.
For the first module, the audience was extremely varied, as we had public school teachers, journalists, and public servers among others learning together how to use Google apps to work collaboratively. Participants mentioned that although some of the features within the apps were familiar to them, they really enjoyed learning how to work on a single document with different people and got some ideas about how to start using technology to connect and become more productive at work.
