One of the most difficult tasks teachers have when shifting to a digital environment involves the struggle of organizing all the digital documents. Where do they go? How can you possibly keep track? What will you do without that massive bag of papers to haul home and grade every night? If you teach with the Google tools, your answer is Google Classroom! Google Classroom was released by Google at the start of the 2014 school year. Since then it has grown tremendously and provided teachers and students a learning space to organize and effectively manage digital course work. This online course will combine explanation and exploration of Google Classroom as a means of streamlining workflow while engaging students in authentic learning experiences. Join us to learn how Google Classroom will revolutionize your class’s digital experience!
By the end of this course, participants will have an understanding of:
- How to create and manage a class of students.
- The workflow in creating and sharing digital files with students.
- How to provide feedback to students using Google Classroom.
- How Google Classroom connects with other 3rd party applications.
