Starting off the new school year with Google Classroom

As we start the 2017-18 school year, it's a great time to start fresh with Google Classroom, even if you haven't used it in the past. If you have students with Chromebooks, Classroom is an efficient way to organize and facilitate how you and your students work and collaborate together. Here are just a few ways you can use Classroom to integrate and utilize technology with your students:
  1. Organize important information and resources where all students can easily access them
  2. Quickly share links to websites for your students
  3. Post questions for whole class or small group discussion
  4. Integrate quick formative assessments into lessons and get instant access to student responses
  5. Electronically distribute and collect assignments
  6. Provide meaningful feedback on student work more quickly
  7. Differentiate tasks, questions, and assignments to flexible groups of students
  8. Keep parents and guardians involved with what is happening in class
Google has created a new Training and Resource site specifically to help teachers get up and running with Classroom. Check out some of the tutorials and we will be sending out lots of additional tips and tricks during the first few weeks of school!
