Workbench is Google’s newly acquired (2018) platform to find, share and explore everything from standards aligned content, lesson plans, courses and much more.
This new Workbench Event Toolkit will enable GEGs to run an event introducing educators to Workbench and enabling them to get started on the platform.
Whether teachers want to find a lesson to use in their class, explore a STEAM activity or share any resources that a teacher has created then Workbench can enable that for you.
Acquired by Google last year, Workbench is a content library for educators to discover, create, remix, and share lessons and resources. At ISTE 2019 Google launched a new integration with the Workbench Blockly programming canvas and Google Sheets. This enables users to build Blockly programs to control multiple Bluetooth devices (robots, drones, sensors, microcontrollers) and send that data to or retrieve data from Google Sheets.
