Unit Descriptions

Unit 1: Working Independently

In Unit 1, you will use your knowledge of Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and Forms, as well as your critical thinking and decision-making skills to independently plan, create, revise, and produce various documents needed in the music industry.


Unit 2: Working in Teams

In Unit 2, you will use your editing and collaboration skills to partner with another Google Apps Collaborator to recall projects completed in Unit 1. Prior to beginning each project in this unit, you will meet with your assigned Google Apps Collaborator to review the project from Unit 1 and plan how you will complete the current project. Then, you will work in teams to edit, revise, and update the document.


Unit 3: Collaborating on New Projects

In Unit 3, you will use your communication and collaboration skills to complete projects with your assigned partner. Each project will start as a new project, so you will be required to meet, plan, and discuss the project prior to beginning. Using the Comment feature throughout each project will help you effectively and efficiently complete the project as a team.


Unit 4: Going Beyond Google Drive Basics

In Unit 4, you will progress past the common Google Apps in order to enhance your knowledge of other important applications. The apps featured in this unit are BeFunky Photo Editor, Google My Maps, Google Translate, and Google Hangouts. In Projects 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 you will work independently, while Project 4.4 requires working with another Google Apps Collaborator.
