Google Classroom Overview

google-classroom

Google Classroom is open to our district. . . .FINALLY!!!!  I’ve been waiting all summer for this news & hoping that it would open before school started.  My wish has been granted just in time.

If you are interested in learning more I will demonstrate Google Classroom at 9AM Tuesday in the Valley High School Media Center.  I will also be available to answer questions & help you get it set up.

WHAT IS IT?
Google Classroom is a learning management system.  It will help you manage workflow in your classroom.  You can create and share documents easily with students & they can turn them right back in to you.  The entire system works easily with Google Drive & Gmail.

WHO SHOULD USE IT?
Anyone really.  However, I’d recommend being comfortable with Google Docs/ Drive first.  You need to understand how documents are shared & how collaborative work can be done.  If you are comfortable with using Google Drive, I’d recommend starting your semester with Google Classroom.

CAN I LEARN ABOUT IT LATER?

If you’re not ready for it, that’s OK.
