Body5 Quick Tips on How To Use Google Classroom Google Classroom | Teaching Strategies Note from Bri: This is a guest post from Frank DiMaria, a middle school computer teacher in Fort Mill, SC. Frank has written a number of articles about educational technology and tips for other computer teachers. At AES when talking to teachers about digital curriculum and blended learning, we are often asked about other tools and resources middle school teachers use. In hopes of providing help to these teachers, we asked Frank to share how he uses Google Classroom to save time and make his life easier. Many middle school elective teachers are looking for tools and resources to save time and make their lives easier. Often times a large portion of your class period is taken up by the process of collecting student work and making sure your students are aware of upcoming assignments. As a solution, many teachers have started using Google Classroom to help with classroom management. If your district provides you with a G Suite for Education (previously Google Apps for Education) account, you may want to look into setting up and maintaining Google Classrooms for all of your classes. I started using Google Classroom as a way to collect work and files that students turn in for grading. We had a “Dropbox” feature on our Web portal, but they removed that feature to save money and offered Google Classroom instead. Now I collect all of my students’ work using Google Classroom. All the files are in one place, and I can grade it using my classroom computer or when I get home. In this article I will share some basic tips on how to use Google Classroom, and why a middle school teacher would find it useful. What Is Google Classroom? Before you can learn how to use Google Classroom, it’s important to know a bit more about what it is. This is how Google describes Classroom: Classroom is a free web-based platform that integrates your G Suite for Education account with all your G Suite services, including Google Docs, Gmail, and Google Calendar. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom. On their website, they also include this video with a short overview of Google Classroom: 1. Creating a Class and Adding Students. Google Classroom allows you to create a unique class for every class that you teach. In just three mouse clicks and a few keystrokes you can create a class. Google Classrooms are divided into different sections... for the purpose of this article, I will cover Students and the Stream. In the Students section you can view all the students in your class. You can either add students to your class manually, or they can join your class on their own using their own Google account. When you create a class, Google Classroom provides you with a class code located on the left side of the screen. Share that class code with the students you want to join that class. From their computers, laptops, or Chromebooks, students log into their Google accounts and use the class code to join. Within the Student section you can also determine if your students are allowed to comment on the questions, announcements, and assignments you create or if they can only post. If you desire you can also choose to be the only one who can post and comment in your class. In the Stream section you’ll find the assignments, announcements, and questions that you create. This is the section in which you’ll spend most of your time after your classes are set up. Read below to learn about assignments, questions, and announcements within Google Classroom. 2. Using Google Classroom Assignments. Assignments are a great way to collect student work and provide your students with feedback and grades. When you create an assignment you can provide specific instructions for that assignment, a due date, and a topic. If you include a due date for the assignment, students will have until 11:59 PM on the date to submit their work for that assignment. If they submit the work late, Google Classroom still accepts the assignment, but indicates that it was turned in late. One of the best features of the Google Classroom Assignments is that you can add files to the assignments you create. You can add a file from your computer, a file from Google Drive, a YouTube video, or a link to a Website. One idea is that a business education teacher can assign a writing prompt on a relevant person in the news and add a link to a YouTube video of that individual delivering a speech. Students can submit any type of file to your Classroom, not just Google Docs. Not only can students submit their completed work as files, you can open them directly from Classroom and grade them right there. You can open files submitted to your Classroom as long as your computer has an Internet connection and the software needed to open the file… you don’t even have to be on your school computer! For example, you can assign an essay and your students can submit their completed essays to an assignment you created in your Google Classroom from any computer that has an Internet connection. You can then open the file and grade it on your computer at school or at home. Google Classroom acts like a "Dropbox" for assignments. Students no longer need to print their work and physically hand it in to you. This gives you more time during class to focus on moving forward, as opposed to wasting time collecting work. 3. Spark Discussions with the Questions Feature. Google Classroom allows you to ask a question within a specific class. As with assignments you can add files to the questions you post, and can assign a due date to it if you want. You can post short answer or multiple choice questions for your students to respond to in Classroom. As students answer a multiple choice question, Google Classroom tabulates the results for that question and shows you the breakdown of the students’ answers in real-time. When you click on one of the multiple choice answers, Classroom indicates which students chose that option. When students respond to a short answer question, Google Classroom cannot tabulate the results so it simply shows student responses. At that point you can comment or reply to each student, and give a grade as you see fit. Pro Tips for Using Questions: Using the Questions feature is a great way to start a discussion in your classroom, acquire baseline information before starting a lesson, and test students’ knowledge on a homework reading assignment. To provide variation, you can post a video in a question and instruct students to respond to the video at home. 4. Announcements for Your Students. In addition to creating assignments and questions, Google Classroom allows you to create announcements. Students can respond to your announcements and you can respond back, creating a thread. In reality the entire class can have a conversation based on one announcement. Once again you have the option of adding a file, a YouTube video, or a link to an announcement. Announcements are a great way to post reminders about assignment due dates to your students. You can even schedule announcements to post at a later date, which can help you stay organized as well as your students. I don’t have a homeroom so I don’t have many announcements, but I would imagine homeroom teachers can use the announcement feature to post reminders, permission forms for field trips, handouts in case students lose them or forget them in their lockers, the list goes on and on. 5. Why Google Classroom Should be Used in Elective Courses for Middle School. What I find the most compelling about Google Classroom is that it allows you to communicate better with your students outside of the classroom. Before Google Classroom students had to be physically in the classroom for you to ask them a question. Now you can do it anytime. Likewise students can submit work from anywhere they have internet access. This saves those of us who teach elective courses for middle school a lot of time when you think about how many students we can have during the school year! Google Classroom saves you time and paper, and allows you to create classes, post assignments, and communicate with your students with ease. It also allows you to see which students have completed their assignments and you can provide direct, real-time feedback and grades. Google Classroom essentially puts all of your assignments, announcements, and student work right in one place. No matter what subject you teach, Google Classroom is a great tool for sharing information with your students, collecting their work, and providing feedback. If you have a Google Account through your district, Classroom is just sitting there waiting to help you challenge and engage your students. Are you ready to teach your students with Google?  We offer lots of modules on the most-used Google products in the world.  If you want your students to stay on the cutting edge of the professional world, we can help!  Check out Business&ITCenter21 for yourself!    About Frank DiMaria.

BodyWhat is Google Classroom and how does it work? Chris Hall, Editor · 8 January 2021 · Explainer Provides context or background, definition and detail on a specific topic. Google Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn Mail Why you can trust Pocket-lint (Pocket-lint) - Google Classroom is an education platform from Google, designed to make it easier for education professionals to conduct virtual lessons.It is a platform that is widely used, from individual tutors up to entire schools, allowing teachers to create and organise lessons, while also allowing communication with students, and the submission of work by students, and all within the same platfor, without having everything scattered across different accounts and services.Essentially, it's designed as a virtual classroom and designed to be simple. Here we're focusing on a quick user guide for the parent or student, this isn't a guide for teachers.GoogleHow do I sign-in to Google Classroom as a student?Your school or college, or teacher, will setup Google Classroom and create the classes. To access Google Classroom you'll need your email and password that you use for your school Google account and that should be provided by your school. Make sure you're not trying to log in with a personal Google account, as in many cases that won't work, unless it's for a private tutor or class.You can find Google Classroom at classroom.google.com where you can sign in. Alternatively, if you're already signed into your school Google account, like your school Gmail, you can click on the nine dots in the top right-hand corner of a Google page to reveal your Google Services - and Classroom will be here. It's the green square in a yellow box, as shown above.Teachers have the ability to invite students to classes. This will send out an email to the correct Gmail account, providing a link so students can join the classes. Google Classroom also provides the ability to create unique ID codes for individual classes, so teachers can supply a code to give you access.There is also a Google Classroom app for smartphones, which we discuss below and again, you'd need to sign into this app using your school Google email and password.How do I get Google Classroom as a teacher?If you're looking to setup and use Google Classroom as an educator, it's part of the G Suite for Education services from Google. If your school or college is using G Suite for Education, you already have access and just have to set it up.How can I access Google Classroom?There are many ways to access Google Classroom. It's a web-based platform, so it runs in a browser and that means that any device that can access the internet will let you access Google Classroom.Most will use a laptop or PC, which is the preferable route to access. But any tablet that has access to a browser will let you access Google Classroom via the method above.Not everyone will need a computer to access Google Classroom (it depends on exactly what's needed and what classes you attend), but there are also smartphone apps. This will give you direct access without needing to use the browser on your phone, which will make it easier. Even if you're using another platform, signing into the smartphone app will give you more options, so it's worth using.You can find the app for iPhone or iPad on the App Store hereYou can find the app for Android phones or tablets on Google Play hereGoogleAlternatively, if you don't have access to a computer you can use gaming consoles which also have a browser. This means you can access Google Classroom on the Xbox or PlayStation. We've written a guide for how to do this right here - and you'll really need to connect a USB keyboard to make this work practically.Remember that you can use Google Classroom apps in combination, so you can view assignments on the Xbox, but then use your phone to submit the work.A brief overview of Google Classroom. Behind the scenes, Google Classroom provides a lot of tools for educators to create and share lessons, to manage and organise students and run classes. How lessons are created and run will come down to individual schools or teachers and how they plan to teach those lessons, with Google Classrooms providing plenty of flexibility in the structure those lessons.There are four main areas to the Google Classrooms workspace that students will see. While the teachers have access to all the tools in the background, for students the interface focuses on the information they need access to.Across the top of the page are four major headers - Stream, Classwork, People and Grades. Now will quickly detail what each of these areas will do.Stream. Stream is really the social part of the class all about communication. For small classes that are entirely virtual, this might be widely-used for discussion, but for larger classes replacing physical lessons, it might be that commenting by students in the Stream is just too much to manage.GoogleClasswork. This is where you'll actually find the work that there is to do and the place you'll spend most of your time on Classroom. Classwork is a little like a folder where you'll find the assignments that your teacher has set for you.A range of different document types can be put on Google Classroom - documents for information, documents for people to share which are editable by all (perhaps a class register), or individual documents to be edited by each student, which will most likely be for the actual work. Images, instructions, videos and so on can all be put in Classwork to support assignments. TomTom Go Navigation App is a premium mobile navigation app for all drivers, with a three-month free trial By Pocket-lint International Promotion · 9 January 2022 When it comes to doing the assigned work, the teachers will decide what they want you to do and in many cases you'll be able to create that work in Google Docs that the teacher provides via Google Classroom. Teachers will also decide what you have to submit or hand in and this can be done via Google Classroom too. That might be filling in the Doc provided, or submitting external work, by sharing a file or taking a photo of artwork or something written.This is one area where using the smartphone app will make things really easy, because you can take a photo with your phone and then upload that to Google Classroom without worrying about how you might transfer that to your computer first.Additionally, if you're accessing Google Classroom via a games console or tablet - perhaps because you don't have access to a laptop - then using the smartphone app again gives you an easy route to submit work to Google Classroom which would be difficult on some devices.On the Classwork page you can usefully see your tasks on the left-hand side, but be aware that all schools will arrange and manage the work slightly differently, so be sure to contact your teacher if you can't find what you're supposed to be doing.People. There's a People tab in Google Classroom and this will give you access to all the people in a class and it should also give you contact details for your teacher or teachers.You'll also usually find details all the other members of the class in this area too.Grading. Google Classroom is a complete education platform, so it includes the ability to grade or mark work in the fourth tab. From some students, this will provide essential feedback and a place to track progress, but naturally, the grading system won't fit with all classes or schools that are using the Google Classroom platform so don't be surprised if this area isn't used.For those in the UK, feedback is required by government for remote learning, so marking of work will still take place - it just might not be reflected in the system provided by Google Classroom.

BodyTeachers' Essential Guide to Google Classroom Topics:   Classroom ManagementEdTech Share Kate McGinnis May 26, 2021 Looking for an alternative? Read our essential guide to Seesaw! What is Google Classroom? And how are teachers using it? Learn more about this popular platform and how to use it with your students. Kate McGinnis | May 26, 2021 Editor's note: Shaun Langevin contributed to the most recent update of this article. Google's most popular tools -- Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs -- are staples for getting organized and getting work done. These collaboration-friendly tools have revolutionized the way we communicate, work together, and store information online. For teachers and students, the education-friendly platform Google Classroom brings the benefits of paperless sharing, assessment, and digital collaboration to classrooms. Tens of millions of teachers and students use Google Classroom in thousands of schools worldwide, making it one of the most popular edtech tools around. Read on to find answers to teachers' most commonly asked questions about the platform, with all kinds of information on how you can use Google Classroom with your students. Also, be sure to check out our guide for parents and our detailed review of Google Classroom's learning potential.

What other apps and websites integrate with Google Classroom? What is Google doing with my students' data? Should I be worried about privacy? Where can I find more ideas about using Google Classroom? What is Google Classroom? Google describes Google Classroom as "mission control for your classroom," which might be the easiest way to think about it. Simply put, it's a platform that ties together Google's Workspace tools (formerly known as G Suite) for teachers and students. It also acts as a digital organizer where teachers can keep class materials and share them with students -- all paperless-ly. From there, you can pick and choose the features you want to incorporate. This flexibility and seamless integration with Google's popular tools have made Google Classroom one of the most widely used edtech tools today. Is Google Classroom an LMS? Technically, no. Google Classroom is not a stand-alone learning management system (LMS), course management system (CMS), or student information system (SIS). That said, Google regularly adds new functions to Google Classroom. As of April 2021, Google Classroom can sync data with the Skyward 2.0 and Infinite Campus student information systems. According to Google, more SIS integrations currently are being piloted or are in development. As Google continues to add features, it may start to look, and function, more like an LMS. But for now it's best to think of the tool as a one-stop shop for class organization. Who can use Google Classroom? Anyone! Google Classroom is included as a free service for anyone with a personal Google account. It's also free for organizations using Google Workspace for Education or Google Workspace for nonprofits. In most cases, teachers and students can access Google Classroom using a Google account provided by their school. While teachers and students in schools are the primary users of Google Classroom, there are also features that administrators, families, clubs, after-school programs, and homeschoolers can use. How do teachers use Google Classroom? Because it's a fairly flexible platform, educators use its features in a lot of different ways. With Google Classroom, teachers can: Streamline how they manage classes. The platform integrates with Google's other tools like Docs, Drive, Forms, Meet, and Calendar, so there are many built-in "shortcuts" for classroom-management tasks. For example, if you post an assignment with a due date, it's automatically added to your students' class calendar for them to see. Digitally organize, distribute, and collect assignments, course materials (think: videos, websites, PDFs, and more), and student work. Teachers also can post an assignment to multiple classes or modify and reuse assignments from year to year. If your students have regular access to devices, Google Classroom can help you avoid some trips to the photocopier and cut down on some of the paper shuffling that comes with teaching and learning. Communicate with students about their classwork. You can use the platform to post announcements and reminders about assignments, and it's easy to see who has or hasn't completed their work. You can also check in with individual students privately, answer their questions, and offer support. Give students timely feedback on their assignments and assessments. Within Google Classroom, it's possible to use Google Forms to create and share quizzes that are automatically graded as students turn them in. You'll not only spend less time grading, but also your students will get instant feedback on their work. Teachers can view individual and class data within Forms or an automatically generated Google Sheet. Can teachers use Google Classroom for assessments and grading? Yes. Google Classroom can help teachers streamline summative and formative assessments. For example, you can use the platform to quickly create, distribute, and collect digital exit tickets or auto-graded assessments. Teachers also can pose discussion questions for quick insights into what students are thinking. With these same tools, teachers also can create summative assessments, like unit tests. These tests can include traditional question types like multiple choice, short or paragraph answer, checkbox, and more. There also are options for students to upload files (like movies or photos) when responding to a question or prompt, allowing students to share their knowledge in a variety of ways. Of course, there are plenty of other formative and summative assessment tools out there, many of which now offer Google Classroom integration. Recent updates to Google Classroom have included features for grading and rubrics. Teachers can simply assign points to different assignments, or give different types of assignments (essays, classwork, homework, etc.) different weights. You can create rubrics right in Google Classroom, and students can view these as they work. Turned-in work can be graded using the rubric, and the score will be automatically calculated. Take note, however, that it isn't possible to use standards-based grades (at least not yet). Do teachers use Google Classroom to teach live, like with Zoom? Some teachers use Google Meet as a videoconferencing solution (instead of Zoom or another similar tool). Google Classroom integrates with Google Meet, and teachers can set up video meetings from within Google Classroom for live, or "synchronous," instruction. By default, students can't begin a meeting before the teacher, or rejoin the meeting if the teacher is the last person to leave. Meet videos created from within Google Classroom are only accessible from school-managed Google Workspace for Education accounts. In addition to live-video capabilities, the recording feature in Google Meet gives teachers an easy tool for creating prerecorded video lessons for asynchronous learning, where students could watch on their own time. The Google for Education Teacher Center has helpful video tutorials about Google Meet to help teachers get started. How do I set up Google Classroom? The basic setup process for Google Classroom is pretty intuitive, even for first-time users. The Google for Education Teacher Center offers several tutorials for getting started -- this is your best bet if you're looking for the most up-to-date videos and information. There are also plenty of do-it-yourself tutorials on YouTube posted by teachers and tech-integration specialists. Many of these teacher-created videos include practical tips and tricks they've learned from using the platform in their classrooms. How can Google Classroom support differentiation in the classroom? Google Classroom makes it easy to customize assignments for individual students or small groups. Teachers can give modified or differing assignments to specific students or groups in a class. You also have the option to check in with a student privately to see whether they have questions or need extra help. An online differentiation strategy like this can make your efforts less conspicuous to the class, so students won't feel singled out in the way that they might with other types of in-person differentiation. With or without a tool like Google Classroom, differentiation is always going to be a matter of creative problem-solving, and there's no one or "right" way to do it. Luckily, lots of teachers share their tips, tricks, and creative solutions online. Here's an example of how one teacher uses Google Classroom to meet students at their levels. How can administrators and curriculum coaches use Google Classroom? Google Classroom isn't just for teachers. Superintendents, principals, and curriculum coaches can benefit from using Google Classroom to organize staff notes, announcements, dates, documents, and other resources for teachers and other school staff. When utilizing Google Classroom in this way, administrators can intentionally model many of the technological skills and proficiencies they'd like teachers to use. Curriculum coaches can create anonymous questionnaires (using Google Forms) to receive feedback on recent professional development. Coaches could even go a step further and upload videos of model lessons for teachers in their district to view -- a great way to bring teachers who are new to a school or district up to speed. How can families and parents stay in the loop with Google Classroom? Google Classroom has options for teachers to send out updates about students' classwork, but it doesn't offer the level of communication you'll find in tools like Seesaw, ClassDojo, or Remind. Google refers to parents and families as "guardians" who can opt in to receive email summaries about missing work, upcoming work, and other class activity. However, it doesn't include direct-messaging features for families or allow families to comment on their children's work. What's new in Google Classroom? The platform has been updated quite a bit since its launch, and Google continues to introduce new features regularly, often based on feedback from teachers. For example, grades, rubrics, and Google Meet integration all are features that were added recently. Another new feature called "originality reports" is essentially a plagiarism-checking tool that checks a student's Google Document against webpages and books readily available on the internet. If the feature is turned on, students can run reports before submitting assignments -- teachers can run them after. Teachers may want to use the originality reports feature as an opportunity to teach the importance of citing sources. How can I make Google Classroom more engaging and interactive for my students? To make learning with digital content more dynamic for students, consider mixing up the types of resources you share with them in Google Classroom. In addition to Google Workspace tools like Docs and Slides, teachers and students can share other types of media, including images, links to websites, YouTube videos, and screencasts. Some teachers even give students a variety of options for submitting their work within Google Classroom. For example, you might offer students the choice to respond to a reading assignment with a comment, video clip, or drawing that shows their thinking (see our section on differentiation above). If you're looking to create an interactive hub for students, you might consider doing this on Google Classroom's Stream page. Within Google Classroom, the Stream is a feed where everyone in the class can find announcements and upcoming assignments, and it's the first thing students see when they log in. Alice Keeler, a well-known blogger who writes extensively about Google Classroom, recommends using the Stream to post your class agenda and suggests using Screencastify to post video messages for students. Some teachers use the Stream to set up class discussion boards, where students can interact online by asking questions or commenting on each other's posts. These discussion boards can help increase class participation and offer students more equity in having their voices heard (or read) by the class. With discussions, you can use the Stream as a closed social network of sorts, and it can be a great way to help kids practice using all kinds of different digital citizenship skills in a "walled garden" type of setting. What other apps and websites integrate with Google Classroom? There are now hundreds of external apps and websites that integrate with Google Classroom. Some of these apps may partner with Google, while others create and publish their own third-party add-ons as Chrome extensions. If you're using Google Classroom extensively, integrating other edtech tools can be a way to streamline your instruction. For example, say you want your students to study some vocabulary words using Quizlet; you can use the Google Classroom integration to directly share and assign a particular flash card set to your class. Or, if you're looking for other learning content online, there are integrations with publishers like Newsela, Khan Academy, and BrainPop, among others -- you'll find all kinds of articles, videos, and other educational content to share with your students. Our article Nine Apps and Websites That Integrate with Google Classroom covers a handful of these, but the list certainly doesn't end there. If there's an edtech app or website you like using with your students, chances are there's a way to link it within Google Classroom. What is Google doing with my students' data? Should I be worried about privacy? As an educator, protecting your students' privacy and data should definitely be a consideration whenever you're choosing a digital tool for your classroom. Anytime a tool might collect data from students, it's essential to ask questions about how the companies involved are securing, using, or storing student data. For more information, be sure to read our full privacy review of Google Classroom. Google says that data privacy and security are high priorities for all Google Workspace for Education products. However, educators should keep in mind that parents and families have a right to opt out if they don't want their children to use Google products in school. Before launching Google Classroom, school administrators and teachers might want to have an alternative plan in place for students who may opt out. In the past, some educators, families, and advocates have expressed doubts about Google's ability to deliver on promises about privacy and data protection. What's more, the prominence of Google branding and products in schools has raised questions about the trade-offs of allowing Google to build its brand in schools. Whether you use Google Classroom or not, it's important to get students thinking critically about data privacy and the commercialization we see in different aspects of our lives -- including our classrooms. Where can I find more ideas about using Google Classroom? If you're looking for official information about Google Classroom, check out Google for Education's Twitter feed for product updates, ideas for teachers, videos, and even a newsletter about Google Workspace for Education products. Many Google Classroom fans are also tweeting, blogging, and even podcasting about all the ways they're using the platform with students. With millions of teachers and edtech specialists field-testing, experimenting, and innovating with Google Classroom, it's easy to find tips and inspiration from fellow educators online. As you're using Google Classroom, don't be afraid to get creative with your own strategies, hacks, and innovative uses for the platform. Like most edtech tools, Google Classroom is what you make of it, and how it works will probably look very different from classroom to classroom. What's most important is to find the strategies and tools within Google Classroom that work best for you and your students.

The primary purpose of Google Classroom is to streamline the process of sharing files between teachers and students.[1] As of 2021, approximately 150 million users use Google Classroom.[2] Google Classroom integrates a variety of other Google Applications for Education, such as Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Gmail, and Google Calendar into a cohesive platform to manage student and teacher communication. Students can be invited to join a class through a private "class code", or be imported automatically from a school domain. Teachers can create, distribute and mark assignments all within the Google domain. Each class creates a separate folder in the respective user's Google Drive, where the student can submit work to be graded by a teacher. Assignments and due dates are added to Google Calendar, where each assignment can belong to a category or topic. Teachers can monitor each student's progress by reviewing revision history of a document, and after being graded, teachers can return work along with comments and grades.

Google Classroom has undergone a series of updates and changes since its original release in May, 2014. Date Update May 6, 2014 Google Classroom was announced with a preview available for some members of Google's G Suite for Education program.[3][4] August 12, 2014 Google Classroom was released publicly. [5][6] 2015 Google announced a Classroom API and a share button for websites, allowing school administrators and developers to further engage with Google Classroom.[7]Google integrated Google Calendar into Classroom for assignment due dates, field trips, and class speakers.[8] 2017 Google opened Classroom to allow any personal Google users to join classes without the requirement of having a G Suite for Education account,[9] and in April of the same year, it became possible for any personal Google user to create and teach a class.[10][11] 2018 Google introduced a major redesign to Classroom. This included adding a new classwork section, improving the grading interface, allowing reuse of classwork from other classes, and adding features for teachers to organize content by topic.[12] 2019 Google introduced 78 new illustrated themes and the option to drag and drop topics and assignments in the classwork section.[13] 2020 Google added integration with Google Meet so that teachers can have a unique meet link within each class.[14] In addition, several features were added to classroom, with Google stating "as educators worldwide have reinvented their practice online, we’re also adapting our tools to meet the evolving needs of their new educational landscape."[15] These updates included: A new to-do widget 10 additional languages Better integration with learning management systems to create and distribute assignments Added smart correct and auto-compose to Google Docs Google Classroom also saw a sharp increase in usage as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in which many schools shifted to remote education options. Specific research programs also used Google Classroom to engage in authentic learning from around the world. [16] Features. Google Classroom integrates several Google Applications for Education (GAPPS) such as Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Forms, Google Sites, Gmail to help educational institutions transition to a virtual, paperless system.[17] Google Calendar was later added to help with assignment due dates, field trips, and class speakers.[18] Students can be invited to classrooms through the institution's database, through a private code that can then be added in the student's user interface or automatically imported from a school domain.[19] Each class created with Google Classroom creates a separate folder in the respective user's Google Drive, where the student can submit work to be graded by a teacher.[20] Assignments. Assignments are stored and graded on Google's suite of productivity applications that allow collaboration between the teacher and the student or between students. Instead of sharing documents that reside on the student's Google Drive with the teacher, files are hosted on the student's Drive and then submitted for grading. Teachers on Google Classroom have the option of creating Assignments in various templates and formats with different accessibility options: "student can view file," "student can edit file," or "make a copy for each student". These assignments can be submitted for a grade and teacher feedback.[21] Students can also choose to attach additional documents from their Drive to the assignment. Set assignments appear on the 'To do' list. Grading. Google Classroom supports many different grading schemes. Teachers have the option to attach files to the assignment which students can view, edit, or get an individual copy. Students can create files and then attach them to the assignment if a copy of a file wasn't created by the teacher. Teachers have the option to monitor the progress of each student on the assignment where they can make comments and edit. Turned in assignments can be graded by the teacher and returned with comments to allow the student to revise the assignment and turn back in. Once turned in, assignments can only be edited by the teacher unless the teacher turns the assignment back.[22] Communication. Announcements can be posted by teachers to the class stream which can be commented on by students allowing for two-way communication between the teacher and students.[20] Students can also post to the class stream but won't be as high a priority as an announcement by a teacher and can be moderated. Multiple types of media from Google products such as YouTube videos and Google Drive files can be attached to announcements and posts to share content. Gmail also provides email options for teachers to send emails to one or more students in the Google Classroom interface. Classroom can be accessed on the web or via the Android and iOS Classroom mobile apps. Originality Report. Originality report was introduced in January 2020. It allows educators and students to see the parts and sections of the submitted work which contains the exact or similar wording to that of another source. For students, it highlights source materials and flags missing citation to assist the student in improving their writing. Teachers can also view the originality report, allowing them to verify the academic integrity of the student's submitted work. On G Suite for Education (free), teachers can turn on originality report for 3 assignments but have limited cloud storage.[23] This restriction is lifted on G Suite Enterprise for Education (paid).[24] Archive Courses. Classroom allows instructors to archive courses at the end of a term or year. When a course is archived, it is removed from the homepage and placed in the Archived Classes area to help teachers keep their current classes organized. When a course is archived, teachers and students can view it, but won't be able to make any changes to it until it is restored.[25] Mobile Applications. Google Classroom mobile apps, introduced in January 2015, are available for iOS and Android devices. The applications let users take photos and attach them to their assignments, share files from other apps, and support offline access, easing accessibility for users. Reception. eLearningIndustry tested and made a review of Google Classroom, in which they highlighted many positive and negative aspects. Among Classroom's strengths, the review highlighted ease of use, universal device accessibility, use of Google Drive as an effective way for teachers to quickly share assignments with students, the paperless process meaning the end of printing, handing out, and potentially losing work, and the fast feedback system between students and teachers. Among Classroom's disadvantages, the review highlighted the service's heavy integration of Google apps and services with limited or no support for external files or services, lack of automated quizzes and tests, and a lack of live chats that can aid in feedback efforts.[26] Google Classroom won a 2020 Webby Special Achievement Award.[27] Due to the prominence of Google, students find Google Classroom easy to navigate since many are familiar with Google layout. Furthermore, the mobile app for Google Classroom functions well which has been praised by students. If notifications are enabled, the mobile app for Google Classroom can provide push notifications to remind students of upcoming deadlines, a feature that has been received well by students.[28] Additional research has shown the benefits of using Google Classroom in a blended learning model such as developing self-efficacy skills and attaining learning outcomes. [29] Criticism. As a company, Google has been criticized on several different issues, including privacy. Specific criticism of Google Classroom generally focuses on concern for privacy for students and Google's use of student data.[30][31] Criticism of Google Classroom is often combined with criticism of Chromebooks and Google Workspace.[32][33] Other criticisms directed at Google Classroom are lack of a full-fledged grade book,[34][35] lack of automatic quizzes and tests (common features in learning management systems),[36] and editing of assignments once they are released.[37] Students have also expressed a desire for personalization due to the Google Classroom layout being very simplistic and unappealing.[citation needed] Also, the chronological setup has been criticized as students respond with frustrations of having to scroll through to find past announcements.[38] Countries abroad used Google Classroom during the Covid-19 pandemic and pivoted to online learning systems to facilitate learning opportunities. While this provided equitable access to students and exposed learners to current and relevant online platforms, it also posed challenges such as unreliable internet connections, high costs of technology, and a lack and unavailability of training to use the platform.[39] Similarly to other online education platforms, adopting a fully remote or online education system brings forward socio-economical challenges such as access to technology in remote and lower socio-economic society areas.[40] In studies discussing use of Google Classroom for English as a foreign language studies, students had positive perceptions towards using Google Classroom tools to learn about grammatical concepts and collaborate with others using student-to-student interactions and collaborative feedback.[41] References. ^ "Google Groups". productforums.google.com.

BodyGoogle Classroom: Everything you need to know Dec 28, 2021   |   Google Workspace   |   14 min read Manage [email protected] or [email protected] emails with incredible ease Request a demo Manage [email protected] or [email protected] emails with ease Request a Demo Share on Some distances bring you closer. Covid-19 has encouraged teachers and students to break the four walls and step into the digital world; a world that prides itself over a limitless reach of ideas, people, and skills. Before the crisis, Google Classroom was being used by only a few educators, but today it has been embraced with open arms and has shown all its stakeholders what they’ve been missing — an online platform which has the potential to break the invisible barriers of a classroom paradigm and bring learners closer to each other and their end goal. Ready class? Let’s begin! 1. What is a Google Classroom? Google Classroom is a free web-based learning platform developed by Google, where teachers can run a class online, create curriculums, and share assignments with students in a paperless way. The platform simplifies teacher-student collaboration by leveraging the various G Suite services like Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. 2. Who can use Google Classroom? Basically, anyone with a Google account can use Google Classroom. Organizations using G Suite for Education, non-profits, schools, independent educators, home-schoolers, administrators, and families are all eligible to use Google Classroom. Teachers and students are primary users and can access Google Classroom through a school account. 3. What are the main features of Google Classroom? Assignments: Teachers can create assignments using learning material like Youtube videos, Google Form surveys, or PDFs from the drive. They can assign assignments to all students or individual students. Teachers can either immediately give out the assignment or schedule the assignment for a particular day. Customizable Grading System: Teachers can choose a grading system and create grade categories. If teachers want the overall grades to be accessible to students they can choose from any of the following systems: Total Points Grading: Divide total points students earn by the maximum points possible. Weighted by Category Grading: The grade categories are assigned a weight. Then, the average scores of each grade category are calculated and multiplied with the grade weight to give you the overall grade out of 100%. No Overall Grade: If the teachers choose to not grade the students. Virtual Discussions: Teachers can invite students to answer question-driven discussions and respond to classmates. Comments on google docs enable a two-way discussion, as teachers can give feedback to students; which is a great way to keep students engaged, especially when you can’t see them. Teachers can manage the discussions by choosing to mute some individual students from posting or commenting. Announcements: Teachers can give updates to students through announcements. Announcements are posts with no assignments; they’re just notices for students; about deadlines, tests, or any class work. Teachers can schedule announcements and can control replies and comments made on the announcement post. Live Classes: This is one of the latest features, where teachers can take a real-time class virtually through Google Meet. Teachers can add up to 250 people to a Hangout call and around 1,00,000 viewers can live-stream. These meetings or lectures can also be recorded so that students who missed the live session can watch them later. 4. How can you set it up? Anyone who has a personal Gmail account can set up Google Classroom by following these steps:Step 1: Open your Gmail account.Step 2: Click on the waffle on the top right corner which contains all the G Suite applications, and click on Classroom.Step 3: You’ll enter a dashboard. Click the PLUS sign on the top right and choose ‘Create Class’. If you’re a student, you can click on ‘Join a Class’ and enter the code given by your teacher.Step 4: Enter details- class name, subject, room, etc. give a class name that your students can easily identify with; for instance, Miss Anne’s Maths Class. 5. What devices does Google Classroom support? Google Classroom is supported by Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The Google Classroom app is also available on Android and Apple iOS mobile devices. 6. Can independent educators who are not affiliated with a school sign up? Yes, if they have a Gmail account. 7. Is Google Classroom different when used by a school account as compared to a personal account? Users with school accounts have access to applications under G Suite for Education and therefore, can leverage additional features that won’t be available to users with personal accounts. These features are: Email summaries of student work to guardiansFull administration of user accountsAdditional privacy and security settings 8. Do students need a Google account to access Google Classroom? No, they can access Google Classroom through their school’s G suite education account. 9. How is Google Classroom related to G Suite for Education? Google Classroom is a product of G Suite for Education similar to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. As part of G Suite for Education, a user of Google Classroom can use other products or applications like Docs, Sheets, etc. This enables teachers and instructors to communicate and collaborate better with students. 10. Can I access Google Classroom if my Gmail is disabled from G Suite for Education? Yes. Gmail doesn’t have to be enabled to access G Suite for Education. But if the administrator has not enabled Gmail, the teacher or student might not get email notifications. 11. Can I use Google Classroom if my Drive is disabled from G Suite for Education? No. Google Classroom is a product of G Suite for Education and the drive contains all the other products such as Docs and Slides that help teachers and students share classwork and assignments with each other. Without access to drive, teachers will not be able to create and share assignments or learning material. Students will not be able to submit work online. You might still be able to log in to the Classroom but the core features will be unavailable. 12. Is real-time interaction possible between students, teachers, and parents possible? . Yes. Google Hangouts, another product of G Suite for Education enables chatting, video conferencing, and video broadcasting. It makes remote learning possible; teachers can invite students to a conference call on Hangouts if they need extra tutoring. Teachers can also record live sessions until up to 8 hours. These recordings can be downloaded and shared on Youtube for future reference. Similar to video conferencing tools like Skype and Zoom, Hangouts allows screen share too. 13. Every student is different. How does Google Classroom help me provide personalized classroom experiences? Google Classroom caters to different types of learners in 3 ways:Who the students are?Teachers can create assignments based on students’ proficiency in that particular subject or topic. There are options for remediation for those who are lagging behind and there are extension activities for those who are ahead of the others.How do the students learn?Students may also differ in the way they want to receive information. Some may like to read whereas others may want to watch or listen. Google Classroom lets you upload documents, videos, and audio files, making it possible for you to share learning material according to your students’ needs.How can the students engage with the teacher?Students have different ways of expressing themselves. Google Classroom allows students to submit their assignments in the form they prefer; as documents, videos, or audio files. This way the students have the opportunity to showcase their interests and talent. 14. Does Google Classroom offer learning material that can be shared with students? Yes. There are a few educational apps integrated with Google Classroom from where teachers can upload and share learning material. 15. Can teachers assign group work on Google Classroom? While creating an assignment, deselect the ‘All Students’ option and choose the students you want to assign the assignment to. Be sure to assign a group number, when you create a Title, for eg: Julius Ceasar-Group 1, to identify which students are assigned to which group. 16. Who is eligible for the G Suite for Education? K-12 (terminology used in the US and Canada for publicly supported school grades from Kindergarten to grade 12) institutions and higher-education institutions that follow the criteria below. Institutions with verified non-profit statusGovernment-recognised, formally accredited institutions that offer nationally or internationally-approved certifications at a primary, secondary and third level.Homeschools are also eligible if they are verified by the state homeschool organization. 17. How can parents use Google Classroom to keep track of the students’ work/progress? In order for parents to receive notifications from teachers about their students’ progress, the teacher would need to invite them via Gmail. This can be done using the ‘Invite Guardian’ option on Classroom. Parents could also obtain the login credentials that the school has assigned their child to access their work. Teachers can email summaries to the parents about their children’s’ progress. These summaries will not contain details of assignments and due dates. 18. Which apps and websites are integrated with Google Classroom? There are apps that allow students to attend lectures given by their teacher on a different application like BrainPop (interactive and animated explainer videos), Typing Club (Gaming/data-driven activities for keyboarding skills), and Pear Deck (interactive slideshows for engaging students). Teachers can invite students from Google Classroom to the sessions in any of the above platforms through class rosters. There are other apps that help teachers in administrative tasks. For eg; Pearson Education helps teachers share assessments, rosters, and content with single sign-on access. There are several educational websites that teachers can source content from and share with students in Classroom; For eg; Newsela, Khan Academy, American Museum of Natural History, Discovery Education, and Duolingo. 19. How secure is the data shared by students and teachers? What are the privacy features of Google Classroom? Data shared on Google Classroom is highly secured. Google Classroom doesn’t have ownership of any data. The schools own the data and Google has its own server and platform services to keep this data secure. Administrators can easily monitor and manage data security. G Suite for Education has no ads and this avoids invasion of privacy by third parties. 20. Which are the tools that allow teachers to give grades and feedback on assignments? Private Comment: If teachers want to leave feedback for a specific student, they’ll just have to choose the assignment from the Student Work page, click the student from the roster on the left, and choose ‘Add Private Comment’ from the bottom right panel.Google Classroom Grading Tool: When a student’s assignment is opened, teachers can access a Grade Bar on the right where they can leave their grades along with any private comment below.Comment Bank: Teachers can create a comment bank to which they can keep adding comments which will be saved to the teachers’ account.

There is also a URL in the same Fast Pin window at the bottom, which you can paste on the assignment page in Google Classroom. If teachers need to record the boom card data, they need to choose the Hyperplay link of a boom card instead of a Fast Pin. 29. How can teachers track student-by-student progress?

Check your activity controls and see what Google is tracking; you can ‘pause’ any activity which you don’t wish Google to track.On the People & Sharing page, you can check what information or activity is seen by others and accordingly change the settings. 31. What could be the reason for teachers and students to not get email notifications? This could be because your administrator has not turned on Gmail for users and Directory for G Suite for Education. The administration needs to add Google Classroom to the list of allowed domains so that the Classroom domain can deliver emails and email notifications. 32. Can students access the assignments of other students? Yes. When the assignments are shared as an announcement post, they are shared with the class as ‘View Only’.

BodyParents' Ultimate Guide to Google Classroom Google's free-to-schools organization platform makes it easy for students to keep all their schoolwork in one place -- but it invites privacy and safety risks that parents should keep an eye on. By Caroline Knorr Topics: Coronavirus Support, Digital Citizenship, Digital Media and School, Learning with Technology, Privacy and Internet Safety Ver en español Advice | 1:15 6 Things Parents Should Know About Google Classroom In addition to textbooks and binders, kids consider Gmail, Google Docs, and even YouTube essential for school.  So it's an easy transition to Google Classroom, the classroom-management tool integrated into Google's Workspace for Education Fundamentals, which Google provides free to schools. Classroom allows students to see what's due, complete assignments, post messages, and more in virtual classes set up by their teachers. The fact that it's paperless and offers built-in opportunities for kids to practice responsible digital skills are great bonuses. Your kid may use it for one class, or all of them. In fact, tens of millions of teachers and students use Google Classroom in thousands of schools around the world, making it one of the most popular edtech tools around. But Google Classroom does invite some risks, including data tracking, potential contact with strangers, and even cyberbullying. While Google has stricter privacy practices for its educational apps, it can collect student data from some of the Classroom tools, such as YouTube, if they're enabled. Google pitches the platform to teachers as "mission control for your classroom" -- and it definitely streamlines homework, remote learning, and organization. But as more schools move toward using Google Classroom, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with its capabilities so you can best support your kid's online learning.    What is Google Classroom? Do teachers use Google Classroom to teach live, like with Zoom? How do you set up Google Classroom? Can you use Google Classroom at home? Can I communicate with my child's teacher through Google Classroom? Can Google Classroom be used for cheating or chatting? Which other apps and websites can be used with Google Classroom? What are the safest settings to enable on my kid's Google account? How does my kid find out about new stuff posted in Google Classroom? Is my kid supposed to be chatting with their classmates during class time via Google Classroom? Who has control over the options in Google Classroom: the teacher, students, the principal, the tech coordinator? If my kid is using Google Classroom, how can I make sure they're not goofing around? How tech savvy do I need to be to help my kid with Google Classroom? Does Google Classroom track and collect kids' data?  What is Google Classroom? Google Classroom is a class-organization platform that incorporates Google's core products (Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive, etc.) so students can access everything they need for a class, including homework assignments, group projects, files, and even Google Hangouts to chat with the teacher or the entire class. Classroom is part of Google's Workspace for Education (formerly called G Suite) and includes optional "Additional Services," including YouTube and Maps, which a school administrator can choose to enable as part of your kid's Classroom tools. Google Classroom isn't a learning tool, like IXL, Khan Academy, and other providers of educational content: It's designed for organization and collaboration. Do teachers use Google Classroom to teach live, like with Zoom? Not usually. However, Google is offering the premium features of Hangout Meet for free to teachers and students who are at home during the coronavirus pandemic, so it'll be easier to use Classroom for live, remote teaching.  How do you set up Google Classroom? Teachers can invite students to enroll in their class in one of three ways: through a link kids click on; an email invite kids can join from; or a code kids use to enter in Classroom. They'll be directed to classroom.google.com, where they log in to access the class (or classes) their teacher has added them to.  If your school has registered for a Google Workspace for Education account (which they should if they're using Classroom), your kid will have a school account or a Google Workspace account. In some settings, your kid may use their personal Google account to access Classroom -- but they're not supposed to use it for school. In Classroom, each class is private to the people the teacher has personally invited, including the students enrolled in that class and other teachers Once your kid has joined a class, they can use all the features the teacher has enabled for that class, including class schedules, assignments, announcements, and even teacher "office hours." Can you use Google Classroom at home? Kids can access Google Classroom from anywhere, including from their phones, when they download the Google Classroom app.  Can I communicate with my child's teacher through Google Classroom? It's possible, though teachers may use another tool, such as Aeries or School Loop, for parent communication. If your kid's teacher wants to use Google Classroom for communication, they will send you an invitation, and after accepting, you will receive updates directly from them, which may include information on upcoming or missing work and announcements. Can Google Classroom be used for cheating or chatting? There's nothing to prevent students from opening up other tabs, such as Wikipedia or Google Search, while they're using Google Classroom. Kids can potentially see other students' work within the platform, too. If they're taking a quiz in Google Forms, however, teachers can disable access to other resources using a feature called Locked mode. As for chatting, yes. Kids can interact with other students and even teachers by text and video using Hangouts or the chat function in Meet. Chatting can be a distraction, but there have also been some reports of kids cyberbullying other students in Google Docs shared for group projects -- partly because it's a place no one would think to look for that kind of behavior. If the chatting is getting out of control, your kid can shut off Hangouts and remove people from a shared document. (To do this, click the Share button and then click the arrow next to the name of the person and select Remove.) If the document was created by someone else and you don't control it, have your kid make a copy and not share it. What other apps and websites can be used with Google Classroom?Google Classroom connects with hundreds of apps and websites -- called add-ons -- including popular tools like Pear Deck, Actively Learn, Newsela, and many more. Apps integrated into Classroom can provide content, improve accessibility, and give students and teachers additional interactive tools. Can I check my child's grades on Google Classroom? No. Though teachers can assign grades using the Classroom service Gradebook, the teacher has to generate a report and email it to you in order for you to see your kid's grades. Your school may use a different tool for grades and other administrative services.  How does my kid find out about new stuff posted in Google Classroom? Your kid will receive an email when the teacher posts an announcement. These emails come through your kid's email account, not in Classroom. Classroom doesn't alert you when an assignment is due; to keep track of deadlines, kids need to check the class calendar.  Is my kid supposed to be chatting with his classmates during class time via Google Classroom? Maybe. Teachers may assign collaborative projects, such as a group research paper in Google Docs or a group dialogue, where students comment on each other's work. But if the class isn't using the tools responsibly, a teacher or administrator can turn them all off.  Who has control over the options in Google Classroom: the teacher, students, the principal, the tech coordinator? An administrator, often the school's information technology manager, sets up Classroom for the entire school. That person is in charge of all the features included in the service, including Gmail, Google Maps, and Drive -- and can turn them on or off. Teachers decide whether or not they want to use these services, and how to configure them for their classes. If Gmail is enabled, for example, teachers can email their students, turn off email notifications, and mute people. If your kid has YouTube enabled in their Classroom account, you'll need to speak to the admin, not the teacher, if you don't want your kid watching YouTube (the admin can also enable "restricted mode" for YouTube, which limits some mature content). If my kid is using Google Classroom, how can I make sure they're not goofing around? Other than monitoring your kid with your own eyes and ears, you have very limited tech options. If your kid uses their own device and not a school-issued device, you may be able to use a parental control app such as Google's Family Link to limit total screen time and allow only certain apps to be used at certain times -- although you'll still need to allow Classroom. Parental controls typically don't work with school devices, since adding programs interferes with the admin's configuration. You can try a few tricks, such as setting a timer, allowing a game break, and giving a reward when your kid is able to focus and resist distractions for a period of time or when they finish something.  How tech savvy do I need to be to help my kid with Google Classroom? If your kids are younger, it's probably a good idea to have some familiarity with Google's programs so you can help your kid upload documents, check the calendar, and do other tasks. It also helps to know how the programs work so you can at least describe the problem to a teacher if anything goes wrong. Older kids may not need any help. Google Classroom is designed to be easy to use, and there's lots of online help. Does Google Classroom track and collect kid's data?  This is where things get a little tricky. Google Classroom is just one part of Google's Workspace for Education, and some of the apps, including third-party programs, can be tracked. Logging in with a school account, rather than a personal Gmail account, protects kids from some data collection because education accounts can't be tracked or mined for data (beyond what's necessary for educational purposes). However, if the school's administrator enables Additional Services, such as YouTube and Maps, Google may collect data on those apps as it would for any of its other consumer apps.  Although Google doesn't share or sell student data to partners, and it vets the developers it uses for Classroom, those third parties could collect information from your kid, then profile and target them using that data.  Still, Google Classroom gets a "pass" rating from its Common Sense privacy evaluation, which means it meets our minimum requirements for protecting students’ privacy.

BodyWhat is Google Classroom? By Luke Edwards published 19 March 21 Teachers and students go online to make learning easier and smarter with Google Classroom. Here's how. (Image credit: Google) What is Google Classroom? That question got you here and the answer has the potential to lead you into a whole new digital world of teaching. Ideal for remote learning as well as in class student engagement.Google Classroom is super minimal so it's easy to learn, use, and share with other teachers, students, and families. It is crammed full of features and is always updating with new integrations that allow you to access lots of free-to-use tools aimed to help make teaching and learning better.While this isn't an LMS (Learning Management System), such as Blackboard, it complements many ideally and, in many cases, integrates as well. Yet as Google Classroom becomes more powerful than ever, it is fast representing a new way to teach and manage the class online and remotely.Read on to find out everything you need to know about Google Classroom.Google Classroom review5 Ways to Prevent Cheating on Your Google Forms Quiz 6 Tips for Teaching with Google Meet What is Google Classroom?Google Classroom is a suite of online tools that allows teachers to set assignments, have work submitted by students, to mark, and to return graded papers. It, effectively, was created as a way to get rid of paper in classes and to make digital learning possible. It was initially planned for use with laptops in schools, such as Chromebooks, in order to allow the teacher and students to more efficiently share information and assignments.As more schools have transitioned to online learning, Google Classroom has got far wider use as teachers quickly implement paperless instruction. Classrooms works with Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Sites, Earth, Calendar, and Gmail, and can be supplemented by Google Hangouts or Meet for face-to-face live teaching or questions.What devices does Google Classroom work with?Since Google Classroom is online-based, you can access it in some form from pretty much any device with a web browser. Processing is done at Google's end mostly, so even older devices are able to handle most of Google's resources. There are device specific apps for the likes of iOS and Android, while it also works on Mac, PC, and Chromebooks. A big advantage of Google is that on most devices it is possible to do work offline, uploading when a connection is found.This all allows teachers and students to use Google Classroom since they can connect with it via any personal device. What does Google Classroom cost?Google Classroom is free to use. All the apps that work with the service are already free-to-use Google tools, and Classroom simply conglomerates it all into a centralized place.An education institution will need to sign-up for the service in order to add all its students and teachers. This is to make sure security is as tight as possible so no outsiders gain access to the information or students involved.Google does not scan any of the data, nor does it use that for advertising. There are no advertisements within Google Classroom or the Google Workspace for Education platform at large. Google Classroom assignments. Google Classroom has a lot of options but, more importantly, it can allow teachers to do more to help educate students remotely or in hybrid settings. A teacher is able to set assignments and then upload documents that explain what is required for completion, and also provide extra information and a place for students to actually work.Since students receive an email notification when an assignment is waiting, it's very easy to keep on a time schedule without the teacher having to repeatedly contact the students. Since these assignments can be lined up ahead of time, and set to go out when the teacher wants, it makes for advanced lesson planning and more flexible time management.When a task is finished, the student can turn it in for the teacher to grade. Teachers can then provide annotations and feedback for the student.As of 2021, Google announced plans for Classroom to allow for the export of grades into a student information system (SIS) making it far easier to use automatically school-wide.Google offers an originality report feature. This allows teachers to run a check against other student submissions from the same school. A great way to avoid plagiarism.Google Classroom announcements. Teachers can make announcements that go out to the entire class. These can appear on the home screen of the Google Classroom lander where the students will see it the next time they log in. A message can also be sent out as an email so that everyone will receive it at a certain time. Or it can be sent to individuals who it applies to specifically. An announcement can have more rich media added with attachments from the likes of YouTube and Google Drive. Any announcement can be set to either remain like a noticeboard statement, or it can be adjusted to allow for two-way communication from students. Should I get Google Classroom?If you're in charge of teaching on any level and are set to make a decision about online teaching tools, then Google Classroom is definitely worth considering. While this isn't a LMS replacement, it is a really great tool for taking the teaching basics online.Classroom is super easy to learn, simple to use, and works across many devices – all for free. This means no costs for maintenance since there's no need for an IT management team to support this system. It also automatically keeps you updated with Google's advancements and changes to the service. Learn everything you need to know by reading our Google Classroom review.4 Free and Easy Audio Recording Tools for Google Slides Google Tools and Activities for Music Education Google Tools and Activities for Art Education 20 Awesome Add-ons for Google Docs Create Group Assignments in Google Classroom End-Of-Year Google Classroom Clean-up Tips  Luke Edwards Luke Edwards is a freelance writer and editor with more than two decades of experience covering tech, science, and health.

BodyOnline Tools for Teaching & Learning Designed by students in EDUC 390D, 592A, & 692D at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Google Classroom Google Classroom is a learning management system (LMS) that aims to simplify creating, distributing, and grading assignments and engaging students in learning online or remotely. Google Classroom is a free application designed to help students and teachers communicate, collaborate, organize and manage assignments, go paperless, and much more! It was introduced as a feature of Google Apps for Education following its public release on August 12, 2014.  Check out this amazing overview of Google Classroom by Amy Flynn and Brandon Lutz. Tool Snapshot. Price Free Learning Behaviorism, Social Constructivism Ease of Use ★★★★☆ Privacy ★★★★☆ Accessibility ★★★★★ Class Size Unlimited ISTE*S Empowered Learner COPPA/ FERPA Yes with Google Apps for Education accounts This is the only application that Google has developed specifically for students and teachers, and they want it to be your go-to assignment manager for Google Drive and beyond. Assignment creation and distribution is accomplished through Google Drive while Gmail is used to provide classroom communication. Students can be invited to classrooms through the institution’s database through a private code that can then be added in the student interface or automatically imported from a School Information Management System. Google Classroom integrates with students’ and teachers’ Google Calendars. Each class created with Google Classroom creates a separate folder in the respective Google service where the student can submit work to be graded by a teacher. Communication through Gmail allows teachers to make announcements and ask questions to their students in each of their classes. Teachers can add students directly from the Google Apps directory or can provide a code that can be entered for access to the class by students. In contrast to Google’s regular services, Google Classroom does not show any ads in its interface for students, faculty, and teachers, and user data is not scanned or used for advertising purposes. Type of Learning: Allows for streamlined feedback and online collaboration. Boosts the social learning aspect of online education, enabling learners to benefit from the experience and skills of their peers. Allows teacher to design digital team based learning activities. Ease of Use: Quick and convenient set up, easy to log in, easy to receive and turn in assignments. Accessibility: Allows for the use of screen readers for low vision users. Google classroom Mobile app works with VoiceOver on iOS and TalkBack on Android. Access: Tool is accessible from all computers, mobile phones, and tablets. Google Classroom Overview Video. *View Transcript for Google classroom video here * Google Classroom & the SAMR Model. Dr. Ruben Puentedura’s SAMR model offers a lens for examining how technology is adopted in a classroom. As you strive to incorporate online tools into your classroom, we encourage you to use this model as an analytic tool. Since Google Classroom is an LMS that integrates Google Apps for Education, It will tie in Google Docs, Google Slides and other Google apps along with other Grading tools (exclusive to Google classroom only). Here are some examples of how using multiple Google Apps that might fit within the SAMR model: Substitution:  Use Google Docs to write a report (instead of writing with pencil and paper). Google sheets to prove the concept of shared workspace and live updating. Use Google Calendar for due dates, events outside the classroom, and other important “chronological data.” Augmentation:  Track when students turn-in work. Highlight student exemplars: An announcement in Google Classroom can attach student exemplars from the assignment folder in Google Drive. Modification:  Create your self grading assessment using Google Forms. Students could use the results to create new learning goals. Create classroom groups based on readiness, interest, reading level, or other factors for teaching and learning. Google Docs to share documents and work collaboratively on writing projects. Google Draw  to draw collaboratively. Redefinition:  Invite a Googler into your class to do a guest lecture through Video Chat on the importance science. Or invite a grandparent who lives in a another state to read to the class during story time. Far too often, technology is used as a direct substitute for other low-tech tools (e.g., pencil and paper). While substitution has some benefits (e.g., students develop their technology skills and knowledge), we encourage you to think about how you might use Google Classroom to modify or redefine learning. Learning Activities. For Teachers. Work on the same lesson plan at the same time with a colleague using Google Docs.  Store your lesson plans in your school’s shared Google Drive so that anyone at your school can find and access them.  Create a folder for your grade level to share resources. For Students. Math Model mathematics with Google Drawing: Collaboratively create virtual manipulatives, such as Algebra Tiles, in a Google Drawing. Distribute Google Drawings for students to build on.  Collaborative reasoning: Prior to providing students the algorithm for solving a problem, students can use a collaborative Google Document or Slides presentation to reason out possible solutions to a problem. Attach a document in Google Classroom as “Students can edit file.” Provide peer tutoring: Students in upper grades can tutor and support students in lower grades through the creation of a Google Classroom class for this purpose. Science Create a Discussion on Specific Topic: In Google Classroom, you have a stream that appears by default when you login to your class. This stream can be utilized to collect student opinions by creating  discussion topics and new posts. Weather/environment lab. Science classes can connect with one or more classes in another city, state, province or country and gather data about the weather or environment around them. Log it in a Google Spreadsheet with a page for each location. Compare and contrast the world around you. Reading Weekly reading record: The students in the school usually have a reading diary that they use to record information about times that they read during the week. They take it home as well as using it at school. A form can be created (See example: Google Form) by the children as a place to enter data about their reading. We hear “I haven’t got my reading diary,” so many times during the year, this way they have no excuses and can access it from any computer. Alternatively a class form could also be setup to gather together everyone’s record. Writing Student collaboration on writing projects: Google Classroom doesn’t only support using e-portfolios, but with the power of Google Docs, the students can also work together in new ways on Google Docs. Spelling Tests: For your weekly spelling test use simple 1-10 or 1-20 numbered Google Form (See example:  numbered form) with a name question and ask the children to type in their answers as you read out the list of words. Once these are submitted apply formula to judge if they are correct or not and it becomes self marking. Other E-Portfolio: As the platform is based on Google Drive for uploading documents and assignments, it can also serve as a digital portfolio for students. Both teachers and students can create folders and documents that can be shared between each other. If the students work in groups, they can create their own shared folder. This way the group’s’ work will be available to all the members of the group, even if one or more are absent. As everything happens in the cloud, everything can be done asynchronous. Response to Intervention: Different Google Classrooms can be created for students to join based on student needs. Students needing additional support or students needing additional challenges can join a Google Classroom class around intervention of a particular topic. Resources.

BodyGoogle Classroom Google meets guidelines DLPS Hello everyone and welcome to our Google Classrooms page. This is where you will be able to find useful links, technical assistance and any updates for the classroom service that we are using as a school. Google Classroom is an exciting, new learning platform with curriculum resources we have been developing for your child to access during the school closure. Your child will have access to Google Classroom using a school email address and a password which has been sent to you via text message and email. Google Classroom has been designed to support pupils having access to increased online learning and crucially develop stronger communication directly with teachers. It will allow pupils and staff to collaborate on one learning platform. Your child will be able to access work that has been assigned by their teacher, complete the work online and share with their teacher. Your child’s class teacher will then be able to give feedback and support your child accordingly in their learning All teachers now have a dedicated google e-mail address for contact with families. These @delveslane.school e-mail addresses are exclusively for contact concerning your child’s education. Useful links:. Google Chrome – In order to use Google classrooms on a computer, you will need Google Chrome as your internet browser. To install, follow this link and click ‘download’. Follow the instructions in the installer. Google Classroom – This link will take you to your child’s class page. You will need to log in with their e-mail and password. If you have misplaced these details, please contact the school and we will support you with this. How to get started as a pupil – This links to a tutorial video which demonstrates how to get started with google classrooms and some of the key features. The Classroom App. The easiest way to use Google classroom is through the app. The Classroom app can be downloaded on Android (Android refers to most non-Apple mobile phones and tablets), Apple® iPhone® or iPad®, or mobile devices running Chrome OS to manage your class and get work done. Android To use Classroom on your Android device, download the Classroom app from Google Play. On your device, tap Play Store. Find and install the Google Classroom app. iPhone and iPad To use Classroom on your iPhone or iPad, download the Classroom app from the Apple® App Store®. On your device, tap App Store. Find and install the Google Classroom app. Once you have the app installed, log in using the same e-mail and password. Once you are able to login to Google Classrooms, you will be able to access your home learning timetables and resources each week from Monday at 8am. There will also be a little well-being quiz for your child to try. Technical support. Kami. Kami is a digital tool which allows you and your children to open and edit .pdf files. This will let you draw and write all over the worksheets and will enable staff to provide more feedback on work submitted in Google Classrooms. How to install the web extension Kami uses a web browser extension for Google Chrome. Use the video link to guide you when installing the extension. The download can be found here. How to use Kami Use the attached video link to see how Kami works and how it can be used. Please encourage your children to explore the controls. Kami & Google Classroom for Students_ Remote Learning is a .pdf guide produced by Kami for you to use. Issues logging in? Good morning all members of Delves Lane and welcome to Google Classrooms! You will have received login details for your child(ren) by text and e-mail on Friday. I will be providing technical support with this moving forwards, and the first guidance concerns logging in. If you have issues logging in, try this fix: Unfortunately, the font used for the password does not distinguish between a capital ‘i’, a lower case ‘L’ and a number ‘1’ Where possible, copy and paste your child’s password into the password box when logging in. Alternatively, copy the password into a word-processor like Microsoft Word and change the font. Times New Roman works well for showing a clear difference between these letters. Once logged in, I recommend either changing the password to something you and your child can remember, or keeping a secure, written record. If common issues occur, I will post guidance to the Facebook feed, so please check here. If you have any technical issues not covered here, please contact the school and we will do our best to help. Take care, and enjoy! Mr Jones 🌈 Need to upload a photo? Hello everyone 😁 Today’s google classroom update includes two tutorial video links for how to upload photos of your work and share them with your teacher. The easiest and recommended way to share work with your teacher and send in photos is using the app. It can be found in the google play store on Android (non-apple tablets and phones) or in the apple app store if you have an iPhone or iPad. Open the store then search for ‘google classroom’ The app developer is listed as Google LLC in both ‘stores’ and the app is completely free. Click on the app to ‘install’ You will need to log into the app using the login details that were sent to you on Friday. Once you have the app on your phone/tablet, this is the video to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpOTxdvr8dE If you don’t have a smartphone/tablet, or prefer to use google chrome on a laptop or PC, you will need this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STRgCq-yVaQ Please note that if you choose this route, you will need to get the photo off your phone/camera onto the computer. How you do this will depend heavily on what device you use, so there are no catch-all tutorials guiding this. The best options are: uploading to a cloud drive like google drive, e-mailing the photo to yourself or plugging your phone into your computer using its charger cable to copy files across. Once you have your files uploaded, if you need to change your work, or add anything extra like new work or photos, you will need to select the ‘assignment’ and ‘unsubmit’ it. You can then add as many new photos etc. as you like. Just make sure to submit it again when you are done! It has been lovely to see so many people getting involved with google classrooms, and to see them interacting with their teachers. We have loved seeing your messages and look forward to seeing even more of you in the weeks to come. As ever, if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Take care, Mr Jones 🌈 Using an Amazon tablet? I have been researching how to install the google classroom app onto an amazon fire tablet, in order to prepare some step by step instructions for you. I have discovered that because Amazon and Google are rival companies, the google classroom app is not in the amazon app store. It is possible to install the app, but you would have to bypass some of the system security settings and I would not recommend this. What I would recommend instead, is that you use the ‘Silk Browser’ which is the amazon version of Google Chrome for accessing the web. This has a swirly circular icon which looks a bit like a marble. See here: I would suggest opening the Silk Browser app, then going to https://classroom.google.com It should take you to the classroom page, but it might take you here first: Click on the ‘Go to Classroom’ button which I have circled. Your child should be able to help you log them in at this stage, having had lessons on it in school. If they or you are unsure, google have a tutorial here: https://support.google.com/edu/classroom/answer/6072460?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en#:~:text=Sign%20in%20for%20the%20first,review%20it%20and%20click%20Accept. If your child has their own tablet, you should be alright to save their login details to the browser. Once logged in, your children should know what to do. To make accessing it easier, I would suggest bookmarking the google classroom page. Picture instructions for bookmarking a page can be found here: https://homepage.ninja/how-to/change-homepage/amazon-silk-browser/fire-os/tablet When you have done this, there are links to TTRS and SpellingShed in each week’s homework. I would suggest opening these links up and bookmarking them too, following the above instructions. I hope this helps, Mr Jones 🌈 .

Google ClassroomGoogle Classroom Tips Home›Google Classroom›Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Google Classroom Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Google Classroom By Matthew LynchSeptember 7, 2020 Spread the love Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last five years, you know what Google Classroom is and what it does. Every week, we receive emails from Tech Edvocate readers looking for tips, tricks, and hacks to maximize this amazing app’s potential. Instead of letting all of the questions and answers go to waste, we decided to compile them into an article so that this helpful information can be readily available to all of our readers. What is Google Classroom? Google Classroom is an interactive collaboration app for educators and learners that can be used through the web or on a mobile device. It provides an online platform to make digital learning more organized and streamlined. It consists of four sections that each have distinctive features and purposes:⦁ Google Classroom offers a live “Class Stream,” where educators can make important announcements and students can see what assignments have been posted. This is the go-to place for educators to post messages or share information in the form of a link, video, or document. ⦁ Under the section titled “Classwork“, educators can post assignments or quizzes, share educational material, or ask a question to the Class. ⦁ The “People” section will provide the name of the teachers and a list of all the students enrolled in the Class. This is where you would go to send an email to a student or guardian, as well as check to see what assignments a particular student has turned in by clicking on their name. ⦁ The “Grades” section, which is only for educator’s accounts, provides a quick and easy format to assign grades to students for each assignment you create. The app also automatically develops Drive folders for each assignment, Class, and learner. This handy feature provides a central location for all of your Classroom files, including any digital materials you shared, each assignment that has been created, and completed student work. This helps to keep you organized and frees up your time so that you can concentrate on more important things. Google Classroom’s time-saving elements contain:⦁ One-click copies: Instead of having to recreate new documents for each learner, you can make a copy of a Google Doc for every learner in your Class with just one click of a button.⦁ Assignment and grade management: With this app, you can assign due dates for each assignment and return grades quickly and efficiently. You also have the option to select no due date so that students can take their time without pressure. Once you have graded an assignment, you can return it to the student, which allows them to immediately view their grade as well as any written feedback you have provided.⦁ Progress monitoring: Check which learners have completed an assignment at a glance by clicking on the assignment link. This will show you how many students turned it in, and who is missing their work. You can also go to the “People” section and click on an individual student’s name to see which assignments are assigned to them, and what work they have completed.⦁ Instant feedback: Comment directly on shared documents and learner posts to provide timely feedback. There also is an option to leave a comment on any assignment that has been turned in so that you can provide positive praise for a job well done, or provide tips for necessary corrections. Have G Suite for Education but cannot access Classroom? Ask your admin to enable it! What is G Suite for Education? G Suite for Education brings together several Google products that promote collaboration among learners and educators.  These Google apps can be used for free in the browser. The shareable documents auto-save and learners can even edit them without WiFi.  Educators can use these products to create interactive learning materials that are not only paperless but also provide an engaging digital format to teach content. Learners can work together, in Class or at home, to complete assignments and group projects. Collaboration with peers is an effective teaching strategy that not only promotes higher-level thinking and creativity but also keeps students engaged. Incorporating these Google products into your instruction helps to make collaboration a seamless part of your Classroom.  Google Classroom: Digital classroom space that allows educators to post assignments, educational material, and grades.  Provides an online platform that is organized, interactive, and paperless. Educators can easily progress monitor students, as well as provide instant feedback on all assignments. Google Docs: Word processor with smart editing and styling apps. You can develop documents that integrate links, images, drawings, and tables. Students can share their Google Doc with their teacher and other classmates. This is great for group work because it provides an opportunity for learners to collaborate and share ideas with each other. Educators can use Google Docs to create worksheets and share important information as well.  Google Sheets: Spreadsheet application for analyzing, visualizing, and charting data. Also great for making checklists, schedules, charts, sign-up sheets, progress monitoring sheets, rubrics, communication logs, and much more. Google Slides: Presentation app that makes it easy to tell stories and create presentations with colorful text and images. Students can create individual presentations that highlight important concepts. They also can take turns making slides to create high-quality group presentations across a variety of subjects and topics. Educators can utilize this app as well, creating slides to share educational content that includes images, pictures, graphics, and attention-grabbing colors to meet the needs of visual learners. Google Forms: Quick & easy web-based survey and quiz creator. The information automatically appears in a spreadsheet. Formats include both multiple choice and short answer options. Educators can create short quizzes or longer, in-depth tests. The survey option helps educators gather student opinions quickly and efficiently. Google Drawings: Graphics editor. This versatile tool allows you to create graphic designs using shapes, text, and images. This product is great for creating an assortment of graphics, such as flowcharts, diagrams, concept maps, timelines, plotting graphs, number lines, mathematical equations and shapes, and graphic organizers.  The scribble tool is also a great way for students to show their work when completing a math problem, or for note-taking during a lecture. How Do I Sign In to Google Classroom? Here are the steps to guide you through logging in to Google Classroom for the first time, whether you are an educator or learner.  Step 1: Type in classroom.google.com on the web browser of your choice.  * If you have never signed in before, you may see a product info page. Click on Go to Classroom, located near the bottom of the screen. Based on your learning environment, sign in to Classroom by entering your email address that is associated with one of the following user account types: School account: Known as a G Suite for Education account, this account is set up by an accredited school. It looks like [email protected]. If you do not know your G Suite for Education account details, ask your educator or the school’s IT admin. Personal Google Account: Set up by you or your parent or guardian. Typically you utilize a personal Google Account outside of a school, such as a homeschool. The email address should look like [email protected]. G Suite account: Set up by your company admin. It looks like [email protected]. Step 2: After entering your email address,  click Next and you will then be prompted to enter your password. Click Next again after you have entered it. Step 3:  A welcome message will appear that lists your name and email address. Click Continue. Step 4: If using a G Suite for Education account, you will be given the option to identify yourself as either a student or teacher. Personal Google accounts will not have this option and can skip to Step 5. Step 5:  Click on the + sign in the right-hand corner and select Join class if you are a student, or Create Class if you are an educator. You are now ready to start using Google Classroom! How Can Educators Utilize Google Classroom? Because it is a fairly flexible app, educators utilize their features in a lot of different ways. With Google Classroom, educators can: Streamline how they manage classes. The app integrates with Google’s other apps like Docs, Drive, and Calendar so there are lots of built-in “shortcuts” for classroom-management tasks. For instance, if you post an assignment with a due date, it is automatically added to the class calendar for your learners to see. Also, everything you create on Google Classroom is saved onto a Drive folder. Your assignments, any digital materials you uploaded, and completed student work will all be in one easy to find location. You can also create a new Google Doc, Sheet, Form, Slide, or Drawing by clicking “Create”. You can upload it to your Classroom once you are done. Or you have the option to upload an existing file from your computer or Drive when creating assignments for your students. You can digitally organize, distribute, and collect assignments, course materials, and learner work. Educators can also post an assignment to several classes at once or modify and reuse assignments from year to year. If your learners have access to technology devices, Google can help you create a paperless classroom, and finally, have a chance to enjoy your free time. No more wasted time making copies in the copy room, dealing with a line of people, or a malfunctioning copy machine. With one click you have everything you need, and the learning material will be much more engaging for students as opposed to a boring worksheet. Communicate with learners about their classwork. You can utilize the app to post important announcements and reminders about assignments, and it is obvious to see who has or has not finished their assignment. You can also check in with individual learners privately, answer their questions, and offer support. Effective teaching requires frequent communication between educators and learners. Luckily, Google Classroom provides a platform with many opportunities for regular communication and feedback.  Give learners timely feedback on their assignments and assessments. Within Google Classroom, it is possible to utilize Google Forms to develop and share quizzes that are automatically graded as learners turn them in. You will not only spend less time grading, but your learners will get instant feedback on their work. You can use the private comment feature to explain errors or give praise. How Does Google Manage Student Data and Privacy? As an educator, protecting your learners’ privacy and data should be considered whenever choosing a digital app for your Classroom. Anytime an app might collect data from learners, it is important to ask questions about how the companies are securing, using, or storing learner data.  According to Google, data security and privacy is their number one priority for all G Suite Education products. The company tries to be as transparent as possible about the data that they collect. Google claims that when their services are used, they collect data from web searches, websites visited, watched videos, user location, and apps used to access Google products. Their reasoning behind their policies of data collection is that they use this data to make their services work better for the user. Therefore, it can be assumed that Google will be collecting data every time a student uses their product. However, they make assurances that collected data is only used for product development and is kept private.  Stakeholders have expressed doubts about Google’s ability to deliver on these promises about privacy and data protection. The visibility of Google branding and products in schools has raised questions about the trade-offs of allowing Google to build its brand. Educators must remember that parents and families have a right to opt-out if they do not want their children to utilize Google products in school. Before launching Google Classroom, school administrators and educators might want to have an alternative plan for learners who may opt-out. Schools should obtain parents or guardians permission for their children before adding them to Google Classroom. Some families might prefer their children to stay off the internet completely, and strictly prefer traditional learning. This is certainly within the parents or guardians right and should be a discussion before implementing any use of Google products in your Classroom Whether you utilize Google Classroom or not, it is important to get learners thinking about data privacy and security. Educators should discuss the importance of digital citizenship and internet safety with their students. This includes a warning about sharing private and sensitive information over the internet and being careful about what you post.  Educators can also encourage families to have this talk with their children to make sure they understand the implications behind internet safety beforehand, especially in this technology-driven society we now live in. How Can I Use Google Classroom to Differentiate Instruction? Google Classroom can simplify a formative assessment, which is essential in helping learners who might need more support or extra challenges. For instance, you can utilize the app to quickly develop, distribute, and pick up digital exit tickets or graded assessments. You can also create a test using Google Forms, and differentiate the way a student records their answers. Create a multiple-choice test for students who need that extra layer of support, and written responses for those who can handle more rigor. Google Classroom can make it a breeze to gather regular feedback on your learners’ progress. There are plenty of other formative assessment apps out there, several of which now offer Google Classroom integration. Google Classroom  makes it easier to modify assignments for individual learners or small groups. This means educators can give modified or differentiating assignments to certain learners or groups in a class. You can modify the rigor, content, length, presentation, or the due date of assignments to meet the needs of a variety of students.  Educators can also differentiate by providing additional resources for students with disabilities or a language barrier. Resources can be material such as a graphic organizer, educational video, visual aids, teacher notes, or an audio recording of step by step instructions. You also can check on a learner privately to see if they have questions or need extra help.  The ability to do all of this online can make educators’ efforts at differentiation less conspicuous to the Class, which can be helpful for learners who might feel singled out. Plus, learners will know they can still count on their educator to check in on them and provide that extra support they may need to be successful with their assignments. With or without an app like Google Classroom, differentiation is always going to be a matter of creative problem-solving, and there is no one or “right” way to do it. The possibilities are endless when it comes to providing differentiation for students. It depends on the creativity and willingness of the educator to find ways to modify assignments so that struggling students can succeed.  Luckily, lots of educators share their tips, tricks, and creative solutions online for those who need support in this area.  How Can Google Classroom Make Learning Interactive? To make digital content more dynamic and engaging for learners, consider mixing up the resources you share with them in Google Classroom. In addition to G Suite apps like Google Docs and Google Slides, educators and learners can share other types of media, such as website links, images, YouTube videos, and screencasts.  Some educators even give learners a variety of options for submitting their work within Google Classroom. For instance, you might offer learners the choice to respond to a reading assignment with a comment, video clip, Google Slides presentation, or drawing that shows they are thinking and interacting with the material in a way that aligns with their individual learning style. If you are looking to develop an interactive hub for learners, you might consider doing this on Google Classroom’s Stream page. In Google Classroom, the Stream is a feed where the Class can find important announcements and upcoming assignments, and it is the first thing learners see when they log in. I recommend using the Stream feature to post your class schedule and suggest using Screencastify to post video messages for learners. With Screencastify you can present documents or web pages along with an audio clip of your voice explaining concepts in your own words. This can provide clarification and a more personal touch. Some educators utilize the Stream to set up class discussion boards, where learners can interact online by asking questions or interacting on each other’s posts. Discussion boards can help raise class participation and offer learners more equity in having their voices heard (or read) by the Class. It also gets students excited and involved in the learning content. With discussions, you can utilize the Stream as a private social network of sorts.  Also, it can be the perfect way to help kids practice using all kinds of digital citizenship skills in a safe and secure setting. This also gives them the freedom to express themselves by posting their thoughts and opinions, while having an adult to monitor them. Can I Add an Assignment Without it Becoming a Part of the Stream? Many educators are annoyed with the Stream section of Google Classroom, where you can post important announcements and see notifications of items that have been added to the Classwork page. The Stream is your Google Classroom communication hub. This is where you post important messages and keep learners informed. The Stream will also display notifications of new items posted on the classwork page by default. This can feel like duplication and can muddy up the Stream. Perhaps you only want announcements and course materials to appear on the Stream, and do not want tons of posts about assignments taking up space and attention. Learners can just as easily view their assignments by clicking on the “Classwork” tab.  There is a way to remedy this by adjusting your settings. If you are using the “Classwork” page, you can choose a collapsed or expanded view for notifications on the Stream page. You can also hide them from the Stream page. Educators can customize what appears on this page for each Class. Here is how you change the settings: Navigate to classroom.google.com and you will see a menu of your classes. 2. Select the Class you want to make changes to. 3. Click on the Settings icon on the Stream Page ( top right corner, third icon from the left) and scroll down to General. Under “Classwork on the stream”, there is a drop-down option to select what is visible on your stream.  If you select “Show attachments and details“, this means that every part of the assignments you create, including the instructions and all attachments will be included in your post. It will be a very long and detailed post.   If you would like only a condensed version of the assignment on the stream, you can change your settings to “Show condensed notifications” on the drop-down screen. This will just show the title of the assignment on the stream.  If you do not want any post about assignments on the stream, you can select “Hide notifications“, and all posts about assignments will be removed from the stream. It is up to the educator to choose how they want their Google Classroom to look and function.  4. After making your selection, be sure to press “Save” in the right-hand corner to save your changes. How Do I Place My Worksheet in Google Classroom? Usually, this question means, how do I put a PDF inside Google Classroom so my learners can write on top of it. Keep in mind that sometimes it is more difficult and not worth the time and energy to digitize a paper worksheet.  Before you attempt to do this, ask yourself: Will this worksheet help the learning stick? Is this worksheet better than hands-on learning? Is this worksheet better than the discussion? Is this worksheet better than engaging learners in new ways? — That is why you utilize technology! Not to save paper or digitize your old stuff. Technology is a tool that allows us to develop new learning experiences for learners that were not previously possible. Can I instead create a Google Doc with similar information geared towards the same learning goals? Attaching a Google Doc is a much simpler process. If you still want to upload a worksheet, here are the steps: First, you will need to scan your document using a computer scanner. Once you have an image scanned, save it as a PDF onto your computer. To add it to your Drive, go to drive.google.com on your browser and click on the “New” button  (+ sign in the top left corner). 3. Then choose “File Upload”. 4. Your computer files will pop up. Navigate to the PDF file that you want to add and upload it to your Drive by highlighting it and pressing “Open”.  It will immediately start uploading. 5. Sign in to your Google Classroom. You can now add your new PDF document by creating a post on Stream or when creating a new assignment. Just click “Add”, then “Google Drive”, and select your document. Can Parents Have Access to Google Classroom? Parents can receive emails with information about their learner’s classwork. You can only add parents for learners using Classroom with a G Suite for Education account, not a personal account.  However, most school settings are using the G Suite version, so this should not be a problem for teachers who want to use this feature. It is a great way to keep parents in the loop so that they know what assignments their child has, as well as whether they are keeping up with their work.  When parents join Classroom, they receive automatic email summaries for each of their learners. Parents choose the frequency of the emails (daily or weekly) and can unsubscribe at any time. The teacher must first invite the parent by adding their email address under their child’s name on Google Classroom. This can be done under the “People” tab. The parent will then receive an email and must accept the invitation to begin receiving the guardian email summaries. Parent email summaries contain information about the following: Missing work— Assignments that were late when the email was sent. *Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails)  or work that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails) Class activity— Important announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by educators Guardian email summaries for your classes are turned off by default. Learn how to manage parent email summaries for your Class. It is important to note that parents cannot access any part of your Google Classroom or view your class stream.  Therefore, they do not have access to view their child’s grades.  Educators will need to find other ways to maintain a steady line of parent communication to keep them informed of their child’s progress and grades.  To turn on Guardian summaries, click on the Settings icon (right-hand corner of the stream page) and scroll down to General. Where it says “Guardian summaries”, slide the grey button to the right, and it will turn green to indicate this feature has been turned on.  Underneath “Guardian summaries”, it says “See example. Click on it for more information. Can I Use Slides Without Using Google Classroom? Yes, you can! As long as you have a G Suite account or  Gmail account, Google Slides is a free app and can easily be accessed without Google Classroom. All you have to do is open up a Google Chrome browser and look for the App Launcher icon. It will be a grid of nine small grey dots located in the top right of the browser. This icon is nicknamed “The waffle” by some because it is shaped similarly to a waffle. Once you click on the App Launcher icon, a menu of Google apps will appear. You will see the yellow icon for Google Slides. Click on it, and a new slideshow document will open for you to use.  It will look like this: If you are trying to give access to Slides to someone who does not have a Google account, you can open a new Slides document, then go to File and click Share. Or you can just click on the yellow “Share” icon in the top right corner. A pop-up will appear and on the “Get link” section, click on “copy link”.  A link to the slideshow will automatically be copied. You then can paste the link into an email and when the recipient goes to click on the link, they will be directed to request permission from you to open it. You will receive their request through email and can accept it. Now they will have access to the Google Slides sent to them. To turn in an assignment, learners will have to either email you the file or send you the link of their completed work. They also can click on the ‘Share’ button in the top right corner and enter your email address and it will be sent to you. It will appear on your Drive under “Shared with me”. What Can I Do With Google Classroom? So this is probably the essential question. Why would you use Google Classroom? What’s in it for you? First of all, it is completely free. After you have set up your Classroom, you can begin. You will find out how to set up your Google classroom account in just several moments. First, allow me to show you why Google Classroom is a big deal, by discussing how to use many of its bells and whistles. Add announcements and lesson content: Give your learners announcements about your lesson or share an important message. You can also add lesson content and educational resources or materials in the announcements. These announcements will show up in your learners’ Google Classroom stream. That way, learners can find everything quickly, and as soon as they log in. You can add content from a Google drive, add files and pictures from your computer, add a video, or add any other link you want your learners to visit.  It is that easy! Add assignments: It is very easy to add a learning activity (assignment) to your course. It works the same way the announcements do, but you can add a deadline and grade it. It will notify your learners when they must complete a learning activity (assignment), and it will also appear in their Calendar. To create an assignment, you need to go to the “Classwork” tab. Then you can customize your assignment to meet your students learning needs. Grade an assignment: You can check and grade the learning activities (assignments) your learners have turned in. There’s room for feedback via an educator’s comment. This could be corrective feedback or positive praise on a job well done. Then, send the learning activity (assignment) back to your learners. The “Grades” tab holds a grade book of all your learners’ learning activities (assignments) and grades for easy access and paper-free grading! Manage learners: Of course, your learners must be able to share comments. Or not? That’s totally up to you! You can manage permissions, giving learners the ability to post and comment, or give only the educator the ability to post and comment. Students enjoy interacting with each other and sharing their thoughts and opinions.  It can allow their voices to be heard and get them engaged and excited about their learning. However, if they abuse this privilege and their posts are inappropriate, then you can turn off student commenting.  This allows you to ensure your Classroom is a safe and wholesome digital learning environment. What Can’t I Do With Google Classroom? There are many things you must know before using Google Classroom for the wrong reasons. It is a great online learning platform for posting assignments, grades, announcements, and sharing online resources. However, there are some things that it does not provide. Here are a few things that it is not known to be: A chatbox: You can comment on learning activities (assignments) and announcements, but there’s no chat function that allows you to instantly communicate back and forth.  If you want to be in direct contact with your learners, you can send them an email or allow other Google apps to take over that function. Think about Google Meet or Hangouts if you need instant, live communication. A test or quiz app: There are many possibilities for making quizzes in Google Classroom, but it is still not meant to be a quiz app. There are so many other amazing apps for that. You can add tests and learning activities (assignments) from other educational apps right inside Google Classroom. You also can add a question. Then select between a short response answer or a multiple-choice question. Not that impressive, I know. It is best to select the first option if you want to make your Classroom more interactive and engaging. Also, Google Classroom provides you with a blank form to create your test or app, and then leaves all the work to you. There are not many bells and whistles to help you create your assessments like other quiz apps. A discussion forum: You can create announcements, and learners can comment on them, but it is not a great fit for discussions. It does not have the organizational features of a discussion board. If an educator posts a discussion topic, and multiple students comment underneath it, it will be difficult to sort through. Also, the thread will be extremely long. Educators may have difficulties trying to find a particular student’s post as well. Learners can’t change the font color or size to make their post stand out, or underline important points. While you will have the means to create a discussion forum, it will not be as streamlined and easy to use as other learning platforms that are designed for it. What is the Easiest Way to Set Up Google Classroom? Google Classroom is an innovative online learning platform that is easy for educators to implement, and engaging for learners. You will find it is easy to set up and intuitive. Here is how you can set up your Google Classroom educator account: 1. Sign up After you go to classroom.google.com, you can use Classroom by logging in using a G suite email address or using it without “claiming” to use it for education. Everything works just fine that way too. It is just harder to manage your learners if you have hundreds of them. You will add them one by one, which can be very time-consuming. 2. Create your first Class Click on the “+” button, which is located in the right upper corner. Choose to “Create a class.” Here, you fill in information about your Class. Write down an amazing class name and section. Then click on “Create.” 3. Invite learners to your Class Once you have developed your Class, you can invite your learners. Let learners sign in using the Google Classroom app by entering the unique code you give them. You will find the class code in your developed Classroom. Go to the tab “People” and under “Students” it will list your class code. Another option is to invite your learners one by one by entering their email address. One thing you must keep in mind: your learners need to have a G Suite for education email or a  Google email address. You can also let your learners go to classroom.google.com. Learners can click on “Join class,” enter the classroom code, and that’s it. This might be a bit quicker as you don’t have to manually type in every learner’s email address.  Now your online Class is ready! At least, it is there, and everyone can access it. There are several other things you must do before you can take off. Create your first assignment, or you make an announcement. You can share the initial announcement in the Stream, or go to Classwork to create an assignment. Click on the “+ Create” button and disseminate your first Google Classroom learning activity (assignment). Don’t forget to number your learning activities (assignments). It is easier for your learners to see which one comes first as you are unable to reorder learning activities (assignments) in the Stream. You can move learning activities (assignments) around to the top. Click on the title to determine if any learners have handed in the learning activity (assignment) and give grades and feedback. Afterward, you can return the learning activities (assignments) to your learners to start editing again. Add lesson content to your learning activity (assignment)/ class. Add content from Google Drive or add a video, a file, a link, etc. These options can be found right beneath the due date. If you just want to share a class presentation that is not linked to a learning activity (assignment), you can post it on the Stream instead of under the Classwork tab. You can add lesson content such as slides, interesting articles, and examples.  Access the Drive folder. Every time you create a class, Google Classroom creates a Drive folder for that Class. You can access the folder by going to the tab “Classwork”. You will find a folder icon titled “Class Drive Folder” on the right-hand side. Click on it, and you’re in the folder. Here you can add class content too. All your learner’s learning activities (assignments) automatically end up in the Google Drive folder, so it will always be easy to locate. Is My Child’s Data Collected by Google Classroom? . Many of the apps associated with G Suite for Education are indeed tracked. When your child is provided with an account to use Classroom, that data is managed by privacy rules that forbid Google from tracking and collecting learner data. If the school’s administrator turns on Additional Services, Google may collect data on those apps as it would for any of its other general apps.  If your child’s educator relies on learners to use their Gmail accounts to access Google Classroom, the data, including the sites they visit, the videos they watch, and their location will be tracked by Google. The company tries to be transparent with their data collection, stating that they maintain privacy and only use collected data to make their products better for the users.  Another risk is the third parties. Although Google doesn’t share or sell learner data to partners and vets the developers it utilizes for Classroom, third parties could collect information from your child, then profile and target them using that data.   Educators need to obtain permission from parents or guardians before implementing Google Classroom, and ensure they approve of their children using the internet and Google products. It also would be a good idea for students to be reminded by both their families and teachers that when using technology at school, they need to be responsible digital citizens. Make sure they are familiar with internet safety and the importance of refraining from sharing private or sensitive information over the internet. What Safety Settings Should I Enable on My Child’s Google Account? If your child uses a personal Gmail account for Classroom, you can change their privacy settings on their Google Account page. (If they have a school account, talk to the administrator for help on what settings you can control.) Keep in mind that to use Google Classroom, your child must share certain information, such as their first and last name. Take a look at these setting to see how to protect your child’s account: On the Personal Information page, you can view what information is public. You can set this information to private if you choose.  On the Data Personalization page, you can take the Privacy Checkup to view what information you’re sharing and change it if you would like. You can go through your Activity controls and view the data that Google is tracking. If you select “pause” activity, Google can’t track it. You can see contact information from the People & Sharing page and what information you’re sharing on Google Services. Consider downloading the Google Family Link for Parents app. This is a free app that is found under the Google Play Store. This app has many parental control features that can put families’ minds at ease and ensure their child’s internet activity is being monitored. Here are some of the great features it provides: Manage which apps your child can use Manage screen time Set daily time limits Receive activity reports Approve or block apps that your child wants to download See your child’s location Create a family group of up to 6 people What Can I Do to Prevent Learners From Using Google Classroom to Cheat or Cyberbully? There’s nothing to prevent learners from opening up other tabs, such as Wikipedia or Google Search while using Google Classroom. Kids can potentially see other learners’ work within the platform, too. Anything posted on the class stream can be viewed by all members of the Classroom. However, assignments are usually sent straight to the teacher, so this is not a common issue. If students are taking a quiz in Google Forms, educators can disable access to other resources using a feature called Quiz Lock.  This will keep students from trying to look up answers on various websites while taking a test.  As for cyberbullying, unfortunately, yes, kids can interact with other learners and even educators by text and video using Google Hangouts or Google Meet. Chatting during instruction and learning activities can become a distraction.  There have also been many reports of kids cyberbullying other learners in Google Docs shared for group projects — partly because it is a place no one would think to look for that type of behavior.   If the chatting is getting out of control, your child can shut off Hangouts and remove people from a shared document. To accomplish this, click the Share button and then click Advanced at the bottom of the window. Click the X next to the name of the person you want to remove. Educators can also disable the learners’ ability to comment and post on Google Classroom if they are using it to be a cyberbully to others. The best way to prevent learners from engaging in inappropriate behavior such as cheating or cyber-bullying is to be open with them about the implications behind these negative behaviors. Both educators and parents can talk with students about internet safety, plagiarism, and being responsible digital citizens.  Remind them that it is a privilege to be able to access technology and use the internet. If they abuse this privilege it can easily be taken away. We want to encourage students to enjoy using technology in the Classroom because it can be fun and beneficial to their learning experience. However, they must be responsible and use it the right way. What are the Best Features of Google Classroom? Assignments: Educators can create learning activities (assignments) using learning content like Youtube videos, Google Form surveys, or PDFs from the Drive. They can assign learning activities (assignments) to all learners or individual learners. Educators can either immediately give out the learning activity (assignment) or schedule the learning activity (assignment) for a specific day. Customizable Grading System: Educators can select a grading system and create grade categories. If educators want the overall grades to be accessible to learners, they can select from any of the following systems: Total Points Grading: Divide total points learners earn by the maximum points. Weighted by Category Grading: Grade categories are assigned a weight. Each grade category’s average scores are calculated and multiplied with the grade weight to give you the overall grade out of 100%.   No Overall Grade: If the educators select not to grade the learners. Virtual Discussions: Educators can invite learners to answer question-driven discussion. Comments on Google Docs allow a two-way discussion, as educators can give learners feedback. It is a good way to keep learners engaged, especially when you can’t see them. Educators can manage discussions by choosing to mute many individual learners from posting or commenting.  Announcements: Educators can give updates to learners through announcements. Announcements are posts with no learning activities (assignments); they’re just notices for learners about deadlines, tests, or any classwork. Educators can schedule announcements and can control replies and comments made on each announcement post. Live Classes: One of the latest features allows educators to take a real-time class virtually through Google Meet. Educators can add up to 250 people to a Hangout call, and 1,00,000 viewers can live-stream. Meetings or lectures can be recorded so that learners who missed the live session can watch them later. Live classes are a great way for educators and learners to interact. They also allow the educator to do a quick check-in and review directions. Learners can ask questions or get some help with an assignment as well. How Does Google Classroom Help Educators Personalize Education? Google Classroom has many great features including the ability to cater to various types of learners in 3 ways:Based on who the learners are: Educators can create learning activities (assignments) based on learners’ proficiency in that specific subject. There are options for reteaching and remediation for those who are lagging, and there are enrichment activities to cater to students who are academically advanced for their age.  Differentiation can be implemented by providing extra support for struggling learners. Educators can provide additional resources with visual aids (slideshows, educational videos, graphic organizers, or information sheets), extended due dates,  and modified or shortened assignments.  For those students who need a challenge or more rigor, educators can incorporate more critical thinking into the assignments or  increase the length or requirements. They also can create additional ways for students to express their creativity by adding a research component to an assignment. Educators can create the perfect assignment to meet the needs of all the students, no matter what those needs may be.Based on how learners learn: Learners may also differ in the way they want to receive information. Many learners love to read, whereas other learners want to watch or listen. Google Classroom allows you to upload documents, videos, and audio files, making it possible to share learning content according to your learners’ needs.  There are also multiple learning styles that best fits the personality and abilities of a student. Educators that know what style of learning their students prefer, can differentiate the assignments based on how they learn best. For visual learners, educators can incorporate visual aids such as YouTube videos, colorful concept maps or diagrams, and Google Slides presentations. Kinesthetic learners who prefer a hands-on approach can be given interactive games, drag and drop activities, and virtual field trips. Auditory learners can be provided educational songs or podcasts that go along with the content, or a recording of the teacher’s voice explaining directions and concepts. Based on how learners engage with the educator: Learners have different ways of expressing themselves. Google Classroom allows learners to submit their learning activities (assignments) in the form they prefer; as documents, videos, or audio files. This way, the learners have the opportunity to showcase their interests and talent. Learners who love to write and create poems and essays can use Google Docs. Creative and outgoing students can create videos of themselves acting out or explaining the content. Those who have a way with words can create audio recordings, songs, or podcasts to show what they know. Lots of students enjoy creating slideshow presentations using Google Slides and using written content matched with interactive images and photos to make their point. Lastly, learners who are great with numbers can create charts and data sheets using Google Sheets.  There is something for every student to show their skills with their preferred method, making learning fun and unique to them and their abilities.  Can Administrators Use Google Classroom Learning Analytics? In Reports, Admins can view the ‘Highlights’ report, which will indicate App Usage Activity for Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google+, Google Classroom. This provides a more in-depth look into what extent the educator and learners are using these apps. The following metrics are available:  Weekly active users The number of 14-day active classes The number of courses created The number of posts developed by educators and learners For individual users, the number of classes created, posts created, and last active time in Classroom What Are the Most Effective Ways to Use the ‘Ask a Question’ feature in Google Classroom? Exit Tickets: Before learners leave a class, the educator can have them answer a question about the lesson. The learners can log into their accounts and the exit question can be ready to go on the Class Stream. Educators can provide a multiple-choice format to see if the learners can find the correct answer.  Or a short response can be required to have learners show what they know in their own words.Wait Time: Google Classroom shows the educator how many learners are done answering the question and how many have yet to answer. This helps the educator to pace themselves, know if more time is needed, and know when they can move on.  Instead of wasting time asking the Class to raise their hand to show who is done, the educator can just quickly glance at their computer screen to gauge the room.Share a Resource: The learners can share resources to validate their answers. By clicking on the “Add” button, students can add the website or image where they found their information to help cite their source. Great for when students need to prove their answers or provide examples to back up their claims. Multiple choice and Polls: Google Classroom‘s multiple-choice question format allows you to poll the Class. This is helpful if, for example, you want to know what apps your learners are using for a specific project or the topic they’re interested in working on next. Instead of the timely old fashioned way of having students raise their hand and then creating a class tally, you can have them log in to Google Classroom and they can quickly choose their answer. If you want to provide anonymity, you can uncheck “Students can see class summary” (underneath “Topic”, right-hand corner) when designing the question. Ask Learners to Ask a Question: Ask learners to come up with their own questions.  This creates an environment of discussion and promotes peer learning. It also gives students a voice and encourages higher-order thinking. How Does Google Classroom Improve Teaching and Learning? Google Classroom is a big time-saver: Since all of the files are located in one place, educators have time to focus on lesson planning, rather than on administrative work. Going paperless makes assessing and grading quick and hassle-free. The added bonus of having a digital grade book saves you from wasting time searching through stacks of paper and eliminates the monotony. Digital grading also helps prevent achy wrists from grading multiple assignments by hand! Increased levels of educator-learner engagement: AV apps, educational apps, and websites integrated with Google Classroom give the educators more scope to make lessons more interactive and engaging. Educators can create assignments that include an interactive online game, an entertaining YouTube video, or an eye-catching slideshow that is chock full of important information and images.  Google Classroom makes learning fun and catches the attention of today’s technology-driven students.  Makes teaching more focused and organized: Educators can view classwork at any time, anywhere. Grade on the go.  A laptop, tablet or phone can give you access to all of your students’ work and grades no matter where you are. Google Classroom also helps you stay organized by providing one spot for assignments, one for grades, and one for announcements. Everything is easy to find, just click on the corresponding tab to find what you’re looking for. It is much easier to locate completed assignments or a particular student’s work because it is all stored on your Classroom Drive folder, just one click away. Learner-educator communication and collaboration is made easy: Educators can ask questions and make/schedule announcements easily.  Just post your important messages or questions onto the class stream and learners will see it as soon as they log in. Video conferencing apps, such as Google Meet, helps educators, learners, and parents stay in touch from the comfort of their homes or offices. If you are unable to meet face-to-face, video conferencing can save the day with virtual parent conferences, live lessons, or a Q&A session. How Do I Attach Files or Add Links to Assignments In Google Classroom? Google Classroom lets educators attach or link PDFs, Google Drive files, or even YouTube videos while distributing learning activities (assignments). Here’s how you do it: Select the Classroom you want to work from Click on the (+) button on the bottom-right corner of your screen Choose ‘Create assignment’ The assignment creation pop-up will reveal itself and then enter the title, instructions, topic, and deadline Click on the type of attachment you would like to include Click ‘Assign’ Attaching files is great for adding resources from the internet or ones that are teacher created. It also is a simple process to attach teacher-made Google products for the learners to use to complete their assignments, such as Google Docs or Slides.  Educators can choose how their learners interact with these files. All of these options will be accessible once you upload a file or attach a Google Drive link. A pull-down menu will appear next to the file name with the following options: (a) students can view the file – learners can read the file, but not make any changes to it. (b) students can edit the file – learners can make changes to the file and edit it as needed.  (c) make a copy for each student – each learner will get an editable copy of the file. It will also automatically include their name in the title. The copies will be saved in your Google Drive underneath the folder ‘Classroom.’ You can also use it to share templates that learners need to follow or a list of questions they must answer. How Do I Share Assignments With Multiple Classes in Google Docs? Do you have multiple classes learning the same material? Google Classroom allows educators to post the same learning activity (assignment) to multiple classrooms at once. This feature is very handy for teachers who have multiple periods or sections, and want all of their students to be given the same assignment at the same time. This is a great time saver and is very simple to do.  In the assignment creation pop-up, in the top-left corner of your screen, there is a pull-down menu that lists all the classes that you have created. By default, it displays the Class you are currently accessing. Click the downward-pointing button next to it and select the classes you want the assignment to post to. You are given the option of checking one Class or multiple. As soon as you post the assignment, it will appear on all of the Classrooms that you selected, at the same time.  No need to recreate the same assignment over and over for each Class. One check and it is all done for you.  How Do I Differentiate Assignments to Individual Learners? Google Classroom also lets you assign different learning activities (assignments) to different learners. Ensure that the work you assign meets the needs of all types of students and corresponds with their unique ability level.  In the assignment creation pop-up, you will find a pull-down menu that lists all your students’ names from a specific class. By default, ‘All Students’ will be selected. To assign it only to a specific learner or a specific group of learners, click on the downward-pointing button and select the name(s) of the student(s) accordingly. Let’s say you want to assign a more challenging assignment to your higher-level students. By following the steps above, you can easily mark a check next to those specific students and the assignment will only be assigned to them. If you have created a modified assignment for struggling learners, find their names to assign it specifically to them. You might have even created a makeup assignment for one individual learner. No problem, just put a check next to their name only. This feature makes differentiating assignments a breeze.  You can do the same for questions and announcements. Perhaps you have a question or announcement for a specific student or group of students. Select the names of your intended audience, and no need to worry about confusing the other students with irrelevant information. How Can I Use the Google Calendar Integration with Google Classroom? Each time you create or join a class, a calendar is by default added to your Google Calendar. You can make appointments and video conferences from this Calendar and schedule dates for field trips and exams. It also shows the deadlines for learning activities (assignments). If you would like to make any changes, it will, by default, get updated on your learners’ calendars.  Google Calendar’s integration with Classroom helps both educators and learners stay organized and keep up with important tasks, with very little effort because it is added for you. How Do I Open Google Calendar in Google Classroom? Choose a Classroom > Click on the ‘About’ tab > Click on ‘Google Calendar’ You can share this Calendar with the parents and guardians of your learners.

Learners will also receive an email notification when their learning activities (assignments) are returned. How Do I Invite Co-teachers to Google Classroom? Suppose you have a co-teacher also working with learners in the Classroom. In this case, it is essential to make sure the co-teachers are added to your Google Classroom account. Inviting your co-educator is easy to do, and you will have full control over what your co-teacher can and cannot do within your Google Classroom based on the default permissions set. Here is how you do it: Navigate to your Google Classroom. Choose the Class you’d like to add your co-teacher(s) to.  At the top of your screen, choose the “People” tab. Click “Invite Teachers.” You will have the option to add educators based on their name or email address. After you have added all of your co-teachers, simply select “Invite,” An email will be sent notifying the teacher that they’ve been invited to your Google Classroom.   It is essential to note that co-teachers do not have the same permissions as classroom owners. Co-teachers will not be allowed to delete a class, remove, or mute the primary educator. Once the co-teacher has been successfully added to the Classroom, the primary teacher or owner will be the owner of the files in the classroom drive, but the co-teacher will have complete access.  However, co-teachers can post announcements, assignments, material, and comments. They also can see who turned in work and can view and assign grades. How Do I Communicate With Parents in Google Classroom? In Google Classroom, educators have the provision to keep parents in the loop with automated email summaries of their children’s progress. It consists of details such as missing work, future work, and class activity. Initially, the guardian email summaries feature will be turned off.  Here’s how you can turn this on: Choose a class Click on the settings icon, and scroll down to General Toggle ‘Guardian summaries’ so it is turned on After turning it on, you will invite the parents. In the ‘People’ tab itself, besides the names of your learners, you will see an option to ‘Invite Parents’, enter the parents’ email addresses, and press invite. If you are not able to invite parents, contact your school admin to get access. How Do You Communicate With Learners Over Comments in Google Classroom? There are two main ways you can communicate with learners inside your Google Classroom; class comments and private comments.  Class comments: Similar to Facebook post comments. Class comments appear in the ‘Stream’ tab and will be visible to the entire Class. By default, both learners and educators can add and reply to comments.   For example, if a learner has a question about a learning activity (assignment), they can comment on it and the educator can reply. Even other learners will find it useful as these comments will be visible to the entire Class. Educators can also alter the permission level. There are three options to select from: Students can post and comment, Students can only comment, and Only teachers can post and comment. To tweak this, go to the settings icon on the stream page and scroll down to General. There will be a drop-down menu (below the ‘class code’) that contains all the three choices. Remind students to make good choices about what they post, or they can lose their privileges. Encourage them to be responsible, digital citizens so that the Class can have open conversations with each other about assignments and class discussions.  Private comments:  For one-to-one conversations between a learner and an educator. It won’t be visible to other learners; neither will it appear in the ‘Stream’ tab. This is great for providing both positive and constructive feedback. You can praise them for their hard work, or point out errors that need to be corrected.  Learners have the option to add private comments in their assignment turn-in pop-up. Educators can view and reply to these comments from the ‘Grading’ screen. Maintaining frequent communication between the educator and the learners is an essential part of every Classroom.  How Do I Send Learners Emails in Google Classroom? Besides Private Comments, Google Classroom also allows educators to communicate with learners via email. If a short comment won’t cut it, and you need to write a more in-depth message, email is the way to go. With one click, you can easily send an email to any student in your Class.  Here is how you do it: Select a classroom Click on the ‘People’ tab Select the name of the learner(s) you would like to send an email to Click on the ellipsis (three dots) and select “Email student” When the Gmail pop-up appears, enter your message and click ‘Send.’ You must have Gmail turned on for this feature to work. Contact your school admin if you haven’t. You should also make sure students have access to email before attempting this. Some schools do not give students access to Gmail.  How Does My Child Access Google Classroom? Setting up your child’s account for Google Classroom is simple. Their teacher does most of the work. Your child’s teacher will set up the Classroom and provide a class code for your child to enter. Educators can also invite learners by email. When access has been granted, your child can get into their Classroom any time by going to classroom.google.com. For older learners who have different educators for different subjects, multiple classrooms will appear. From their dashboard, they can select the Class they want to view. Once they enter a classroom, learners find three tabs at the top of the screen. The Stream tab will be the first thing they’ll see when they log on. It is the announcement page where educators share important messages as well as online materials. It also provides a full overview of assignments, and any other posts the educator includes. The Classwork tab stores all your child’s academic assignments. They’ll see each learning activity (assignment) that’s been added by their educator. When your child clicks on a task, they’ll get the due date, details, resources needed, and status of the learning activity (assignment). Learners also can turn in their work here once it is completed. They can add files or create slideshows and images to be submitted. The People tab shows all the educators and learners in the Classroom. It is also a place where learners can communicate directly with one another or their educator through email. How Do I Create a Class in Google Classroom? Below you will find information about developing a classroom in Google Classroom. It is a very straightforward and simple process. Sign in to your Google Classroom account, and click on the + sign in the right-hand corner. Select ”Create class”. A pop up will show and you will fill in the information, including class name, section, room, and subject. Only the name of your Class is required, the other info is optional. Be sure to pick a relevant, concise name for your Class that makes sense. Click create.  Click on the “People” tab and add your learners by entering their email address. Remember to indicate what permissions you want these learners to have about posting and commenting. If you have a large class, this could take a while. You can also add learners by having them enter the class code themselves. You can find the class code listed at the bottom of the “People” tab, as well as in the settings under the “General” section.  Access your Stream tab. Make an announcement to your Class. You will notice that you can attach a file, a document from Google Drive, a YouTube video, or a link to another resource. Go to the Classwork tab to create an initial learning activity (assignment) for this Class. Add in the title, description, and give it a deadline. Attach any resources and assign the learning activity (assignment) to learners enrolled in this Class. Your Class should now be ready to go. Time to get the learners involved and working on their first assignment!  How Do I Monitor Learner Assignments in Google Classroom? Below you will find information on grading and returning assignments in Google Classroom.  The app makes grading assignments a seamless task so that educators can grade with ease and learners can promptly get feedback on their progress. Log into your Google Classroom. Once you are on the homepage, you should see your assignments in the left-hand corner under the heading ‘Upcoming Assignments’ on your Stream tab. Click on one of your posted assignments. This will take you to a page where you can view learners’ status in terms of work completion. This is called the learner work page. It will show you the names of who turned in their work and who is still missing the assignment. For a learning activity (assignment) to have been marked complete, the learner will need to turn it into their Google Classroom account. This is helpful because you can immediately see which students are not turning in work, and may need you to check-in on them. Communication between the educator and the learners is essential and helps ensure students are not falling behind on their online assignments. If you check the box next to a learner’s name, you can email the learner or learners after clicking on the envelope icon at the top of the screen. Sending an email is a good option if you have more than a few questions or tips to share. Notice that you can assign grades and points. Review student work and assign corresponding grades right on the Google Classroom platform. No need for a paper grade book and the tiring act of scribbling multiple grades down by hand. If a learner has submitted work, you can grade it and return it to the learner. The learner will automatically be able to see their grade when they log in.  You also have the option to click on a learner’s name, and you can send them a private comment.  Reasons to send a private comment could include a request to fix an error and resubmit or to give them positive praise on a job well done. To see all learners work simultaneously, you need to click the folder at the top of the Learner Work page.  The Folder link will be grayed out until learners have turned in work. Once you click on it, you will have access to all the turned in assignments, and it will include the students’ names in the title so that you can easily know who the work belongs to. Why Should We Use Google Classroom? There are a lot of reasons why integrating this app in your Classroom would be beneficial. First, it is highly engaging for your learners! Children love working with technology. Let’s face it; they are amazing at it! Incorporating this digital learning platform into the Classroom increases student interest. Being able to create a Google Slides show with bright colors and interesting images is much more fun than filling out a boring worksheet. I can remember many times when my learners helped me figure out a roadblock with technology. Learners are pretty quick at learning how to navigate new activities through technology. They will probably surprise you with their creativity. Google Classroom is fairly easy to use once you get the hang of it. A few tutorials and your students will be ready and eager to log in and start working on their assignments.  Google Classroom is also great because of its organizational features. Teachers will no longer have a  huge stack of papers to pass out or grade. Instead, all student work can be online and is automatically saved onto your Drive. This is also beneficial for students because they no longer have the issue of losing their homework or leaving their assignments in their locker. They just need to log in to their Google Classroom, and there it is. I also found that this feature saves educators time. All you must do is upload a resource into your Google Classroom and share it with your learners. It only takes a few clicks and your students can have access to whatever educational material they need to successfully grasp standards and objectives. You can save time by using the self-grading feature on Google Forms. This feature will even give you a spreadsheet of your learners’ scores. Grading papers is no teacher’s favorite pastime. With Google Classroom, you can create a quiz or test with relevant questions and answers choices, and input the correct answers. Once students submit their answers, their score is automatically calculated and shared with them and you. This will save so much time, and also has the benefit of providing instant feedback to the student. That is what you call a win-win situation! Students can work at their own pace as well as have differentiated assignments that meet their needs. Assignments can be assigned to specific students and educators can then differentiate the assignment itself, as well as the resources provided, and the due date. Why is Google Classroom So Popular? If you’re still largely using paper for content and assignments, Google Classroom offers an easy-to-use, digital alternative. Like many of its products, Google provides an intuitive and user-friendly experience. If you already use paperless methods for your learners, then Classroom will streamline your workflow with its seamless integration of its apps. It helps with learner organization by putting all assignments and works in one safe place. No more issues with work being left in lockers or at home, or completely lost. Learners can just log in and their work will always be there, especially with the handy auto-save feature that is a part of all Google products. It also helps educators, because developing, copying, assigning, supervising, collecting, grading, recording, and returning work to learners requires a lot of time and steps. Google Classroom streamlines these tasks by combining, eliminating, or organizing them. Google Classroom will save time and trouble for educators grading learner work. Everything is also saved and organized onto a Drive folder, which is another great feature that allows educators to have one spot to house everything for easy access.  Classroom is not a production app, but rather a management app; so it merely requires you and your learners to learn how to post information and documents and locate the information you want. If your learners already have experience using other Google apps, like Docs or Spreadsheets, then they are already set for using Classroom. Google Classroom is additionally designed for educators and learners to share ideas and resources. Educators and learners can participate in online Classroom discussions. The educator just posts a question on the stream and learners can comment and provide their thoughts and opinions. Everyone can post links to informative resources within discussions or other sharing mechanisms as well.  With its time-saving qualities, paperless platform, and ability to create engaging interactive assignments, no wonder it is quickly becoming a popular learning management system in many schools. How Does Google Classroom Compare to Other Learning Management Systems? With Classroom, Google is entering an already cutthroat market ripe with LMSs. A lot of the other learning management systems have been around a while and have unique characteristics that make them user friendly. However, Google Classroom has a few innovative features that make it stand out. Where it has the highest leverage is in its integration with its apps. This allows extremely easy access for learners and educators to view each other’s work and decreases many of the steps previously necessary for sharing information. Educators can create assignments that incorporate other Google apps such as Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, or Slides. It is very simple for both educators and learners to create a new version of one of these apps, or upload a previously completed version. Educators can take advantage of this by using these products to share content. Learners can use these products to complete assignments with a variety of formats. Another advantage is that products developed with Google apps are designed for collaboration.  Collaboration may more easily take place in Google Classroom than other more “closed systems” management apps. The “Share” button located in the right-hand corner allows both learners to share what they are working on with their teacher, or their peers if they are doing group work. Educators can create a product for a particular student and enter their name to share it with them or share it with a co-worker to collaborate. One-click and you are on the way to collaborating with whomever you choose.  Google Classroom may not possess many of the perks educators have come to enjoy with another system that has continuously expanded its features for several years. Other systems allow for educators to create assessments right in the system itself, or more easily allow the utilization of non-Google apps for communication and resources. What Types of Posts Can You Make in Google Classroom? You can post almost anything in Google Classroom to start; Google Classroom allows you to make five different types of posts: Assignment: Posts in which learners can submit assignments. Assignments can be on any topic or subject. You can have students complete assignments in many different formats, such as a Google Slides presentation, or charting data on a Google Sheets form. You can create a variety of assignments that meet the needs of all learners in your Class, and the learning content you want to cover. The possibilities are endless. Quiz Assignment: Posts in which you can develop a Google Form quiz from Google Classroom. You have the option of making the quiz multiple choice or short answer.  It will automatically grade the quiz for you as well. What a time saver! Students can see their grades once they submit their quiz, which helps to provide immediate feedback to them. Question: Posts in which you can ask learners a question and learners can respond with a short answer or answer multiple-choice questions. This is great for asking a quick question to all your students at the same time. Perhaps you want to ask an exit ticket type question to see if students understood the objective of your lesson. Or you might need to find out what day is best for a video chat lesson. Post your question and you can immediately get student feedback and responses. Material: Posts in which you are giving information to learners; learners do not submit their assignments. This is a great way to share educational resources to teach or review content.  Material that can be shared could be a link to a website, educational videos, important documents, an interactive slideshow, an informational poster, or a study guide.  Post to the Stream: An announcement, item, or link you post to the Stream that learners see when they access Google Classroom. This will be the first thing the students see when they log in. Great for sharing an important message to every member of your Class, or you can pick and choose who sees your post if you are trying to reach particular students. You can link to an existing Google Doc, Slide, or Form that is in your Google Drive on any of your posts. Also, you can develop a new Google product from a post. You can link to a website, YouTube video, or PDF file as well. Many apps can integrate with your Google Classroom.  In Google Classroom, What Are the Essential Parts of an Assignment Post? With an assignment post, teachers have several options to personalize assignments for their learners. Title: Here is where you write the title of your assignment. Don’t repeat titles- it will make it confusing for your learners to tell assignments apart. Make sure the title makes sense and correlates with what the assignment is about.  Instructions: They are not mandatory. Add any information that your learners should know about their assignments. This could be a good place to add tips or reminders to help students do their best. A reminder could be a statement such as, “Don’t forget to look over your work and make corrections before turning it in.” Add: Add something from your Google Drive, a Link, a File, or a video.  This function helps you to add content that will help learners complete their assignment, or better understand the learning goal. This could be a video that contains the steps to solving math problems on their assignment, or a graphic organizer to help them organize their thoughts.  Enrich the learning process with this feature. Develop: This is where you can develop a new Doc, Slide, Sheet, Drawing, or Form. Create the perfect assignment and then it can be easily uploaded as a new assignment. For: An assignment will automatically post in the Google Classroom you are working in. You can assign one assignment to several Google Classrooms using this drop-down menu if you have multiple Classrooms. It will also post to all learners, but you can choose to assign a post to individual learners or small groups of learners using the drop-down menu.  Points: You can give your assignments any number of points or have an assignment be ungraded. By default, the app assigns 100 points to assignments.  Due: You can add a deadline and a time an assignment needs to be turned in by.  This will help students stay on task and know what the deadline is. You can also select “no due date” if you want to allow students to take their time without the added pressure of the due date. This depends on the learner and the assignment. Topics: You can place an assignment under a topic. Topics are good ways to organize assignments. This is optional though, and you can choose “no topic” if you do not want to separate your assignments by topics.  Rubric: You can develop a rubric for your assignment within Google Classroom or upload your own. Rubrics are a great way for students to self-assess their work, and Google Classroom makes it easy to add them to any assignment. Once you’re ready to assign your post, click “Assign” in the upper right-hand corner of the page. This will post your assignment. Not ready to assign it yet? You can schedule the assignment to post at whatever time you like! Just click the down arrow to the right of “Assign” and click “schedule.” Google Classroom will ask you to select a date and time to schedule your assignment to post. This is great for when you are working ahead and have several assignments ready to go, but do not want to overwhelm your students with too much work at once.  How Do I Delete a Classroom I Am No Longer Using or Made By Mistake? It is recommended that you archive a Class in case you need to use an assignment or other materials from it in the future. However, if you are sure you want to delete it, here are the steps. To delete a class, you must first Archive it. Go to the Classes homepage, and hover over the Class you want to delete. Click on the ellipsis (three dots) and select “Archive” from the drop-down menu. A pop up will appear, asking if you are sure you want to archive this Class. Click “Archive” Next, go to the menu on the side of your homepage, and select “Archived Classes” The Class you just archived will appear. Click on the ellipsis (three dots) and select “Delete”. A pop up will appear asking if you are sure you want to delete this Class. Select “Delete” if you are sure, and it will be erased. Where Do I Find the Class Drive Folder? The class Drive folder is located on your Google Drive and will have all of the assignments you created, any materials you uploaded, and any work turned in by students. Everything put onto your Google Classroom is automatically saved onto this Drive folder for easy access. So where do you find this handy dandy Drive folder? There are two different ways to access this folder.  One is directly from your Google Classroom. The other is after logging into your Google Drive.  To access it from Google Classroom,  go to the “Classwork” tab and it will be located in the right corner next to an icon of a file folder, and will be titled “Class Drive Folder”.  To access it from your Google Drive, login to your Drive by going to drive.google.com.  Once it opens up, click on “My Drive” on the left-hand side.  There will be a section titled “Folders”, and here you will see a folder title “Classroom”. Click here and this will take you to all the drive folders for each of your Google Classrooms ( if you have more than one Class). The title of the folder will match the title of your Class. Here is an example below: How Do I Personalize My Google Classroom Homepage? Personalize your homepage to make it stand out or reflect your personality and style.  Google Classroom will put a random image as your background, but you can change it. You can pick a theme from a menu of choices provided by Google. The themes include the following categories: General, English & History, Math & Science, Arts, Sports, or Other.  Each category has several colorful and artistic images to choose from.  To select a theme, go to the homepage of your Classroom, and you will see a colorful rectangular box that lists the class title and class code. In the bottom left corner, it says “Select theme”. Click on it to pull up your options. Pick out the theme that represents your Class best, and then press “ Select class theme”, located at the bottom right corner. It will automatically update to show your new theme on the home page. If you do not like any of the theme choices, you also have the option to drag and drop an image or upload it from your computer. You could use a personal photo, a class photo, or an image from the internet. To choose this option, go to the homepage and on the title and class code section, you will see  “Upload photo”. Click on it and this screen will appear: You can drag a photo and release it, or click on “Select a photo from your computer”.  A  menu of your files will appear. Highlight the file you want to use and press “Open”. It will begin loading the image you selected: After it has loaded, you will be directed to crop it. Press “Select class theme” at the bottom left corner once you have decided how you want to crop the photo. It will automatically upload it to your homepage.  Can I Save an Assignment as a Draft and Finish it Later? One of the best features of Google products is the auto-save feature. Gone are the days where you lose your work if your computer crashes or you log off and forget to press save. Google Classroom also has a nifty auto-save feature with assignments.   One option while working on an assignment, is to click on the drop-down arrow next to where it says ‘Assign’, and select ‘Save as draft’. However, if you are in the middle of creating an assignment and exit out of it for any reason, it will automatically be saved as a draft and you can come back to it later to finish it.  Here is an example of an assignment that has not been finished or posted yet: Next to the word “Assignment” in the top left corner is an “X”. If you click it, you will be exited out of the assignment and will be brought back to the “Classwork” tab.  Here, you will see it was saved as a “Draft”.  You can even log out and come back later, and it will still be there. Click on “Edit Assignment” and you can go back in and finish creating the assignment at your leisure.  You also can click next to where it says “Draft” and the ellipsis (three dots) will appear and give an option to delete. If you want to get rid of the draft, click on delete and it will erase it for you. How Do I Create a Spreadsheet of the Assignments and Grades From My Google Classroom? Google Classroom provides an easy to read digital grade book when you click on the “Grades” tab. It lists the assignment title along with the due date due and the grade you assigned to each student. There is even a class average feature, that automatically takes all the grades for the individual assignment listed and calculates the average score. While it is easy to read and maneuver the Grades tab while online,  perhaps you would like to view it in a spreadsheet format.  Google Classroom has a super simple way to transform the online grade book into a Google Sheets spreadsheet. Here are the steps: Click on the “Grades” tab to open your grade book. Click on any assignment title, and then go to the Settings icon in the right-hand corner and select “Copy all grades to Google Sheets”. A spreadsheet will automatically be generated for you, using the data from your Google Classroom grade book, and will open up on your screen for you to view. Why would I want to create a spreadsheet?  To have a printable version for your records   Share a copy with your administrator to discuss student progress Make a copy with only a particular student’s info visible, and share it with their parent during a conference Add additional student info Automatically calculates student grade average Concluding Thoughts. In this guide, we have provided answers to frequently asked questions about Google Classroom. How did we do? What did we miss? Hopefully, this information will help you to better understand the inner workings of this versatile app, and allow you to utilize its many great features.

BodyHow does Google Classroom work? Learn all about the online classroomByGbenga Ogbonyenitan-April 8, 20201ShareFacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestWhatsAppLinkedinReddItTelegramGoogle Classroom is Google’s online classroom, where students and teachers can hold virtual meetings for distance learning. During the quarantine due to coronavirus, many public and private educational institutions closed and were forced to continue classes online using the platform.The tool is free for all users, including teachers and students, and can be accessed from the computer, in the web version, or from the cell phone, with applications for Android and iPhone (iOS). Check below for more information about Google Classroom and how to use the virtual classroom.What is Google Classroom and how does it work?Google Classroom is an online classroom that helps teachers manage activities and create interactive classes, helping students increase learning through tools available on the Internet. The service also allows you to create different classes, distribute tasks and send and receive notes and feedback.The platform can be accessed for free by public and private schools and includes integration with G Suite for Education, a set of free Google tools and services tailored for schools. In addition to classes, teachers can send activities and assignments to students using the Classroom via computer or mobile phone.Accessing Google Classroom. Teachers and students can access Google Classroom through Google Classroom or the mobile application, as long as they have Internet access. If you are a teacher and want to create a class first, you need to register with G Suite for Education. If you want to use the tool just to complement the classes, it is not necessary to register in advance. All resources can be accessed as long as you and the students have a Google account.READ:  Wikimedia Enterprise: All You Need To Know About The Premium WikipediaThe steps to access the platform in the web version are very simple: just access the site and log in. If it is your first access as a teacher, you will need to create a class, enter the class information and then invite your students by e-mail or by sharing the classroom access code. Students need to be invited to have access to a specific virtual classroom.Google Classroom Features. When creating a class, teachers can create teaching content topics, add questions to students and attach activities, and can modify the score for each exercise and the time available for delivery. Class materials can be shared in PDF, photos, videos, and links to websites, so each student has access to the content directly from their device.Google Classroom also has integration with several applications focused on education. With Classcraft, teachers can import student data and transform activities into missions within the game. In Quizizz, you can share the games present in the application and turn them into tasks. Tynker has several free courses and learning tools focused on computer science.Google Classroom for Teachers. By creating different classrooms for each subject, teachers can individually monitor each student’s progress, as well as the level of teaching in each class, and can modify the content according to the difficulties presented in each class. It is possible to manage all contents and students through four different tabs: Stream, Classworks, People, and Marks.With Google Classroom, the grades received by students are recorded in the platform, as well as the date on which each activity was sent, which allows the teacher to monitor the situation of each student more quickly and individually.READ:  Spotify Premium Duo: See Price and Plan for CouplesGoogle Classroom for Students. Students have access to three different tabs: Stream, Classworks, and People. Through the “Stream”, you can follow all the topics created by the teacher, viewing all the lessons that have already been created. In the “Classworks” section, students find all the tasks already done and pending, as well as the maximum grade assigned to each one and the deadline for submission. In the “People” tab, you can check all the other students who are registered in the class.It is indicated that the students follow the classes in real-time, in the time agreed with their teachers through the Google virtual calendar. However, if you miss the lesson, the content is saved in the virtual classroom. Students can also view each other’s activity responses to make a comparison and track the class’s progress. Marks and feedbacks are returned individually by the teacher.This post may contain affiliate links, which means that I may receive a commission if you make a purchase using these links.

Getting started with Google Classroom. Google Classroom is a free online service that lets teachers and students easily share files with each other. Teachers can post assignments for students to complete and then grade them, all without having to print anything. It also serves as a way of communicating. Teachers can post announcements and upcoming assignments, as well as email both students and their parents. It relies heavily on the use of Google Drive, a free cloud-based file-sharing program. It allows teachers to use Google Docs, Google Forms, and many other Google services to create and store assignments. Watch the video below to learn more about getting started with Google Classroom. This tutorial is mainly a guide for teachers. It includes lessons on creating classes and assignments, grading, and communicating with students and parents. How to access Google Classroom. Before you start using Google Classroom, you'll need to make sure you're signed in to your Google account. If you don't have one, you can review our lesson on creating a Google account to get started. Google Classroom can be accessed by visiting classroom.google.com. There's also a mobile app that can be downloaded on both iPhone and Android devices. The mobile app is great for accessing your classroom on the go, but you'll probably have an easier time performing tasks like grading and creating assignments on a computer. Creating a class. When you open Google Classroom, the first thing you'll need to do is create a class. Click the Plus icon in the top-right corner, then select Create class. This will bring up a dialog box asking if you're planning on using Google Classroom at a school with students. Google Classroom requires schools to use G Suite for Education if their teachers plan to use it in their actual classrooms. This provides teachers and students with more privacy and security measures. If you're using Google Classroom for your own personal use, you won't need to worry about this. You'll then need to enter the name of your class. There's also the option to enter a Section, Subject, and Room if you're using Google Classroom in a school and want to include this information. When you're done, click Create. Navigating Google Classroom. Once you've created a class, you'll be taken to that class' page. Click the buttons in the interactive below to learn more about the Google Classroom interface. edit hotspotsStream Tab. The Stream tab is kind of like your class' homepage. You'll find all of your posts here, as well as upcoming work.Classwork Tab. The Classwork tab is where you'll create, assign, and grade all of the work for your class.People Tab. In the People tab, you can view and communicate with the students and teachers in your class.Class Settings. In the Class settings menu, you'll find the details about your class, including its section, room, and class code. You can also control whether students can post and comment on the Stream.Stream. In the Stream, you can post your own announcements for your class to see. You can also allow your students to post and comment on the Stream.Upcoming. Here, you'll find any work that's due soon and other reminders for things like tests and trips.Menu. In the Menu, you can access other classes, your calendar, to-do lists, and more.Grades Tab. In the Grades tab, you can see each student's overall grade as well as their grades for individual assignments. Adding students to your class via email. Once you've created your class, you'll need to add your students to it. One method you can use is to invite students via email. To do this, you'll first need to navigate to the People tab. Click the Invite students icon. This will bring up a menu where you can type your students' various email addresses. Once you've added these, click Invite. This will send an email to your students, with a link inviting them to join your online classroom. Adding students with a class code. The second option for adding students to your class is using a class code. This is a short code that anyone can use to join your class if you provide them with it. There are a couple places to access the class code, first click the Stream tab. Then, you find the class code within the class information section. If you want to enlarge the code to show the class, you can click the four corners icon.  Another way to access the class code is to first click the Class settings icon in the top-right corner. You'll find the class code under the General section. From here, you can share your class code with your students with an invite link or a class code.  You'll also see some options for teachers to secure their Google Classroom. Click the drop-down arrow next to Manage invite codes. Within the Manage invite codes menu, you can select an option that works best for your class. Turned on: Students at any time can join your class if they have the current class code or invite link.Turn off: No one else can join the class because the invite code is off.Reset: Invite code is resetted to a new code. Students can still join, but they will need the new code or invite link. This won't affect students who have already joined the class. Setting up the Stream. The Stream is where students can see announcements and other posts from their teacher. There are settings applied to the Stream that give students the option to post and comment or only comment. To change these options, go to Class settings. Then, click the drop-down menu next to Stream. For this example, we'll select Only teachers can post or comment. By selecting this option, teachers will have control over the information posted to the Stream. Adjusting email notification settings . After creating a class, you can change how you are notified by students. Click the Main Menu icon. A panel opens on the left side. Then, click Settings. Navigate to the Notifications section. There are toggle switches next to each notification setting. Currently, all are switched on. This means that the teacher will receive all email notifications. If you do not want some of the email notifications, take a look at the list and see if switching some of them off would work for you. If you do not want email notifications for a particular class, click the drop-down arrow next to Class notifications. There you can switch off notifications for a specific class. If you do not want to receive any email notifications, switch off Receive email notifications. By setting up notifications, you can adjust how many emails are sent to your inbox. In our next lesson, we'll start exploring how to create, track, and organize your own assignments.

What’s New. 30 Nov 2021 Version 2.2021.462 * Bug fixes and performance improvements Ratings and Reviews . 1.5 out of 5 122.8K Ratings 122.8K Ratings JasmineToronto , 19/01/2021 Ok but lots of bugs . Firstly, one bug is that when I finish writing in a specific place, Google Classroom automatically places my writing in a totally different place and it also changes the size. Secondly, it takes ages to load up something and I have never found an app other than this that takes so long to load. Thirdly, when I save my work and then find out that I did a mistake, then I go back I find out I can’t edit what work I had saved. Fourth, sometimes when I try to draw using pen, I can’t write; It only changes the size and then I have to start all over again. Fifth, not only does it take forever to upload something it also takes ages to send something. Sixth, sometimes it kicks me out of the whole app and logs me out! Seventh, when I watch a video then I have to pause, I find out I can’t pause. The only way I can pause is restart the app. Eighth, sometimes when I write it turns out almost invisible. This app crashes all the time and has many more bugs and errors than I mentioned that have to be fixed. It is also very glitchy. I like school, too! So don’t think I have the brain of a two year old.This application feels like it is unfinished and has lots of bugs without anyone debugging it. not_an ostrich , 01/08/2021 Your application is simply unnecessary. . I am aware that in the United Kingdom and all of its territories it is a legal requirement to do schooling up to your GCSE exams, therefore, learning is necessary, however, I find it detestable that Google, as a corporation, has the audacity to create an online form of learning. The majority of U.K. schools provide digital planners henceforth your calendar and reminding capabilities prove futile. All though I must say that your service is often used more than a physical planner, but this also often gets students in trouble because they are expected to use their physical planners. A second thing I might say, other than the digital planning capabilities whose flaws have been mentioned, the only other capability is to hand in work. This could be done via email or physically in class, google classroom has no need for this function. If you really would prefer to have the network traffic, work can be emailed via g-mail, which several schools, including my own, already employ, in order to distribute necessary information to students. Thank you Google, for listening to my revised thesis explaining the uselessness of your poorly built service. Regards, Brayden C. Dat Creeper , 31/01/2021 ridiculously hard to use . Alright, so im a student in highschool. S1 to be specific. I have to download this putrid app just to add a photo onto an assignment that most likely wont work anyway, the work given is far too much. The average school day for me would be 6-7 hours on and Fridays 4-5. I even give up my weekends just to catch up on “education.” This app has me spending the entire day on useless knowledge that i wont need for my future job or anything in that matter. 11-12 hours is a stupid amount of time wasted on this. I haven’t been outside for about a week due to getting 10-20 assignments per day. Notifications are awful and also gives you an email every single time someone does something on the app. I have over 50 emails just saying “Hey, (insert name) a new assignment has been posted by (insert name).” I can’t find any important emails now because of that. Overall, too much stress and a hassle to use. My mental health was already low before i used this app and its gotten much, much lower. Thank you for reading this review from an honest student.

BodyThe beginners guide to Google Classroom Lucie Renard — May 31, 2017 As the classroom is becoming more and more paperless, teachers have to start finding solutions to hand out assignments, manage their classroom, communicate with students, and so on. A rapidly growing number of teachers are finding their way to Google Classroom. An ingenious virtual classroom that focusses less on tech and more on teaching. You don’t have to be a tech professional to handle this classroom. In this post I’ll explain what Google Classroom is, and what you can or can’t do with it. Afterwards, you learn to set up your classroom and I’ll give you some great apps you can use in combination with Google Classroom. What is Google Classroom? Google Classroom is a free application designed by — take a guess — Google. Google Classroom helps teachers and students to communicate and can be used to organize and manage assignments, to go paperless, for collaboration between students and between teachers, for teaching from a distance, and so on! You could compare it with Showbie, and other online learning platforms or learning management systems. It’s built on top of Google Docs and Google Drive, which means it’s very easy to use and intuitive for any teacher. But that doesn’t mean it’s boring. Google Classroom is full of surprises you’ll encounter along the way. I hope this post gets you started with the basics. Things you can do with Google Classroom. So this is probably the most important question. Why would you use Google Classroom? What’s in it for you? First of all, it’s completely free. You won’t have to upgrade to a pro version that will cost you some money. Yes, $0,00. Nothing. At. All. After you’ve set up your classroom, you can get started. You’ll find out how to set up your Google classroom account in just a few minutes. First, let me show you why Google Classroom is a big deal. Here’s a list of the things you can do with it: Add announcements and lesson material: Give your students announcements about your lesson. Add lesson materials in the announcements. These announcements will show up in your students’ Google Classroom stream. That way, students can find everything quickly. You can add materials from a Google drive, connected to that Google Classroom lesson, add files and images from your computer, add a YouTube video or add any other link you want your students to visit. It’s that easy! Add assignments: Just like adding an announcement, you can add an assignment to your course. It works the same way, but here you get the option to add a due date and grade it. It will notify your students when they have to make an assignment and it will also appear in their Calendar. You can even add a BookWidgets assignmentin just a few minutes. Grade an assignment: Afterwards, you can check and grade the assignments your students have handed in. There’s room for feedback via a teacher comment. Then, send the assignment back to your students. The “Marks” tab holds a gradebook of al your students’ assignments and grades. Manage students: Of course, your students have to be able to share comments. Or not? That’s completely up to you! You can manage permissions, giving students the ability to post and comment, only comment, or give only the teacher the ability to post and comment. You can even e-mail your students individually. Things you can’t do with Google Classroom. There are a few things you should know before you start using Google Classroom with the wrong reasons. It’s an online learning platform, but it isn’t: a chatbox: You can comment on assignments and announcements, but there’s no chat function. If you do want to be in direct contact with your students, you can send them an email, or you can enable other Google apps to take over that function. Think about Hangouts Meet. a test or quiz tool: There are some possibilities when it comes to making quizzes in Google Classroom, but it’s still not meant to be a quiz tool on its own. There are so many other good apps for that. Think about Google Forms or BookWidgets quizzes. Option 1: You can add tests and assignments from other educational apps right inside Google Classroom, like for example, an BookWidgets test that gets automatically graded. Option 2: Here’s what you can do inside Google Classroom itself: Add a question. Then choose between an open answer or a multiple choice question. Not that impressive, I know. It’s best to choose the first option if you want to make your digital classroom more interactive. a discussion forum: You can make announcements, and students can really comment on them, but it’s not a great fit for discussions. Check out Padlet if you’re looking for a simple yet effective, free classroom tool that empowers discussions (and other cool things). Setting up Google Classroom in 3 simple steps. Okay, I got you so far. This means Google Classroom must mean something to you. You’ll find it’s easy to set up and very intuitive to keep on using it. Follow these steps to set up your Google Classroom teacher account: 1. Sign up. When you go to classroom.google.com you can use Classroom by logging in using a G suite e-mail address or you can use it without “claiming” to use it for education. Everything works just fine that way too. It just harder to manage your students if you have hundreds of them. You’ll have to add them one by one. 2. Create your first class. Click on the “+” button in the right upper corner. Choose for “create a class”. Here, you fill in some detail information about your class. Write down a good class name and section. The class name should be the title of your class so you can find it back in a few seconds. Then click on “create”. 3. Invite students to your class. Once you have created your class, you can invite your students. Let them sign using the Google Classroom app by entering the unique code you gave them. You’ll find the code in your created class. Go to the tab “students”. Another option is to invite your students one by one by entering their e-mail address. One thing you have to keep in mind: your students need to have a Gmail or Google e-mail address. You can also let your students go to classroom.google.com. There, they can click on “join class”, enter the class code and they are in! This might be a bit faster as you don’t have to type in every student’s e-mail address. Now your online class is ready! At least, it’s there, and everyone can access it. There are a few other things you have to do before you can take off for real. Create your first assignment or make an announcement. You can share a first announcement in the Stream or you can go to Classwork - Click on the “+ Create” button and share your first Google Classroom assignment. Don’t forget to number your assignments. It’s easier for your students to see which one comes first as you are unable to reorder assignments in the stream. You can move assignments around to the top though. Click on the title to see if any students have handed in the assignment and to give grades and feedback. Afterwards, you can return the assignments to your students, so they can start editing again. Add some lesson material to your assignment/ class. Add material from Google Drive or add a YouTube video, a file from your computer, a link, etc. You find these options right beneath the due date. If you just want to share a presentation of your class, which is not linked to an assignment, you can go to the tab “about”. Here you can add some lesson material like slides, interesting articles and examples. Access the Drive folder. Every time, you create a new class, Google Classroom creates a Drive folder for that class. You can access the folder by going to all your class tiles. On each tile, you’ll find a folder icon. Click on it, and you’re in the folder. Here you can add class materials too. All your students assignments automatically end up in the Google Drive folder, so you’ll find it back whenever you want. The best apps for your Google Classroom. You can add practically everything to Google Classroom with a link to the website or page. Although, this doesn’t allow students to work interactively with the apps, on the apps. There are a lot of apps that have a built in share button to Google Classroom. This makes it easy for students to open the app via Google Classroom. Here’s what you have to do: Create an account within the application or website. Create an activity or resource for your students within the application or website. Use the “share to Classroom” option. You’ll find this option somewhere in the application. Now you can do things, like creating a quiz and assign it to your students in one of your classes. Note that there are so much more apps out there that have this option. I just picked out my favorites. 1. BookWidgets. With BookWidgets (Google for Education Partner), you can create interactive exercises for your students on tablets, computers and smartphones. As a teacher you can choose between more than 40 different exercises and games. We give you the template, you add your lesson idea in just a few clicks. It’s that easy! Students open the exercise with the app on their iPad, Chromebook or smartphone via a special short code or by scanning the QR code you gave them. Or, you can just assign them a BookWidgets exercise, right away in Google Classroom. Just download the BookWidgets Chrome plugin and get started in Google Classroom. You can even follow your students’ activity in Google Classroom, live, from a distance, inside Google Classroom with the Live widgets feature. The biggest advantage of BookWidgets is that it’s so diverse. Making your own quizzes or worksheets? BookWidgets! Making your own games like crossword puzzles, memory, spot the difference, jigsaw puzzles, etc.? BookWidgets. Making automatically graded tests right inside Google Classroom? BookWidgets! Want to give it a try? 2. EDPuzzle. EDpuzzle is an easy and effective way to deliver videos in your (Google) Classroom. And it’s not just a video distributer. With EDpuzzle video comes to life. Add audio-notes and questions to your video. EDpuzzle makes it easy to add comments to videos and the questions make the video more interactive. When should you use EDpuzzle? You can use it to empower critical thinking when students watch a video. It’s also well suited for flipped classrooms. 3. Buncee. Buncee is a creation and presentation tool and makes it easy for you and your students to create content for all classroom purposes. You can make an awesome presentation, an interactive story, an engaging lesson, or a beautiful card. Buncee has a lot of fun and educational media tools and graphics, which makes presentations more visual and fun. Add a presentation, made with buncee, to your classroom materials of your class in Google Classroom. Students can visit the presentation and use it to study a test or do homework. 4. Nearpod. Nearpod is also a presentation tool like Buncee. It’s also much more then that! Create your own interactive presentations. Add some slides, slide by slide, or choose for a special Sway template you can adjust. All those slides make an amazing interactive presentation. Especially if you add activities like quizzes, open ended questions, polls, draw questions and others. What about taking your students on a field trip within your presentation? Just add a slide with a virtual reality experience from Nearpod’s library. When your presentation is ready, your students can opt in by entering a code in their Nearpod app or just click on the assigned link in Google Classroom. You, as a teacher, are in charge of the presentation. when you switch to another slide, the presentation on your students’ devices will also switch to that slide. When your students’ have to make a quiz or a poll, they can just do that on their screen, as it is a part of the presentation. The answers are gathered live! So you can see immediately what your students answered. 5. Screencastify. If you want to give clear, online instructions, giving students the opportunity to process learning material at their own pace, you can use Screencastify to record your screen, voice and yourself while giving instructions and guiding students through some learning materials from a distance. Think about homework or when some students need homeschooling and you are teaching them from a disctance with Google Classroom. Screencastify makes it super-easy to create instruction videos. Simply install the Screencastify chrome plugin in your Chrome browser, and start creating videos by recording your screen and voice. Students can follow every movement on the screen while listening to your comments. When you’re finished, save and download the video and share it with your students in your learning environment (e.g. Google Classroom). 6. Newsela. Newsela builds reading comprehension through leveled articles, real-time assessments and actionable insights. Students can read articles on their own tempo. Newsela offers articles from world class news publications in 5 adaptive reading levels. You can also unlock progress with embedded assessments like quizzes. So, if you are in need of a good text that is adapted to different reading levels, you should include some of these articles in Google Classroom. 7. Quizlet. Quizlet is a quiz tool that focusses on terms and definitions. As a teacher, you add a class and make a quiz. Share this quiz with your Google Classroom with just a few clicks. They just have to click on the assignment in Google Classroom and choose what game they want to play. They can take a test, opt for the learn mode, learn by flashcards or match terms with their definitions. Quizlet Live lets your students work together in order to find the right word or definition to the description. It’s made for practicing terms and definitions. There’s something tricky though: you can’t see what descriptions your teammates have. If someone on your team makes a mistake, you have to start over again. Teams battle each other in order to be the first team to reach the finish line. More tips about Google Classroom. Of course, there’s much more to say about Google Classroom. That’s why I recommend taking a look at the website “Teacher Tech” by Alice Keeler. You’ll find everything you’re looking for right there. She’s an absolute pro when it comes to Google Classroom. Another helpful resource when starting out with Google Classroom is this “Teaching with Google Classroom” book. I hope I helped you a bit with taking your first steps in Google Classroom.
