3 Ways to incorporate Google Classroom
1. Capture the Middle of the Process: An important shift in the teacher student relationship is to get away from evaluator and focus on being a coach to your students. Google Classroom places all of the students work into a folder that is easily accessible from your Google Drive. While students are in the middle of working on their assignment you are able to go in and insert comments and guide them through the process.
2. Create a Lesson: More than simply assigning work to students, Google Classroom allows you to build an assignment. Include a description and attach multiple documents, links and videos. This puts the entire lesson in one place. A great option to keep in mind when a substitute is covering your class as well as a tool to help students process information at their own pace.
3. Have the students do the work: You do not need to create templates, worksheets or graphic organizers for students to use Google Classroom. Students will click on “OPEN” in Google Classroom and use the “ADD” attachments option to attach screenshots of their work or documents they have created. Students can also create a blank Google Doc right from Google Classroom. By creating blank documents from the “ADD” attachments option, the document is immediately available to you. You are able to view student work and provide feedback before the due date.
