‘Grow with Google’ at LCC March 9-10
LCC students and the Lansing community will have an opportunity to brush up on their digital skills when the “Grow with Google” tour makes a stop on main campus.
Lansing will be only the third city in the nation to host the tour.
The free two-day event will be held in the new conference center on the first floor of the Gannon Building from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, March 9, and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 10. All are welcome.
The focus of the workshop is to help job-seekers, small business owners and educators improve their technological skills.
The event will feature a hands-on, interactive environment where attendees can learn directly from Google staff.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and the entire capital region to benefit from this innovative learning experience,” said LCC President Brent Knight. “The success of our students is priority number one and this event will help further prepare and empower them to succeed in the classroom and beyond.”
Marilyn Twine, director of public relations for LCC, said around 1,000 people are expected to attend the event. She encouraged everyone to come out and take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
“Anyone who wants to improve their digital skills should attend,” Twine said. “Anyone who wants to improve their job search skills, (has) questions about search engine optimization, or they’re curious about online safety; there really is something for everyone.
“The second day of the tour is specifically designed for educators with a focus on improving digital skills related to lesson plans, blended learning curriculum, collaborative tools and a variety of other topics,” Twine added.
