INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Google will kick off their six-city “Grow with Google” tour in downtown Indianapolis on November 10 – 11 at the Indiana State Museum, located at 650 W. Washington Street. This free event will provide a variety of digital training opportunities through workshops, demonstrations, networking, one-on-one coaching sessions and more.

Grow with Google aims to empower students, teachers, job seekers, entrepreneurs, business owners and all others with the digital skills they need to be successful.

“Ivy Tech Community College’s School of Information Technology continues to grow in enrollment and add even more IT degree programs. This resulted from the increasing need to help Hoosiers enhance their digital skills and apply them to all sectors of the Indiana economy,” said Matt Etchison, Vice President for Information Technology at Ivy Tech. “As Indiana becomes known as the tech hub of the Midwest, this is a great opportunity not only for our students and faculty, but for all Hoosiers to learn new skills or fine tune existing ones.”

Some of the topics that will be covered at Grow with Google include:

  • Email, spreadsheets and presentations
  • Online safety
  • Tools to collect and analyze data
  • Online marketing tips
  • Job search strategies
  • Search engine optimization
  • Coding basics for adults and children
