Google Classroom

Ladies and gents, I know I have shared how much I adore Google! Well, Google has stepped it up and added something I like even more!

Have you heard of Google Classroom? I am in love! My district is completely Google, so our students have Google accounts already. If you have used Edmodo, it's similar but it is much more user friendly. You can create classes, post assignments, post announcements, create conversations, post links to websites or whatever else your heart desires. Our school has three sets of Chromebooks, so we typically use those to access Google Classroom.  But your students can access it at home, at the computer lab, or even on iPads!

If you haven't used Google Docs or Drive before in the classroom, here is a great article by Jennifer Carey at Edudemic to help you get started. 

With Google Classroom, it is so much easier to implement Google Docs in your instruction.

Here are my two biggest pet peeves about using Google Docs in the past with my students.
1. Students forget to make a copy of my template and mess up the original.
2. I can't see what my students are doing until they share it with me. 

Guess what? Google Classroom has solved these two problems!

If you've ever created a template in Docs and shared it with your students (or colleagues for that matter), you know that each user needs to make their own copy. But with Google Classroom, you can create the template, and Google Classroom will create a seperate Doc for each user.  (Can you say fabulous?)
One you set up Google Classroom, it will set up a "Classroom" Folder in your Drive. Then, every time you create a new assignment, a folder within the folder is created. So everything is neatly organized and you can see how your students' work is progressing!  

During our writing celebration, I just shared the entire folder with my class.  So the students were able to leave each other comments and suggestions. LOVE IT!  

I wish I could show you some more screenshots of what it looks like, but I can't because of my student's privacy! But it's easy peasy and you will be able to figure it out like that!!

Classroom is still in it's beginning stages, but I can't wait to see what they throw at us next!

Now that you've read what I had to say about Google Classroom, check out this video from Google to really see how awesome it is. Enjoy!

Are you using Google Classroom? If so, let me know what you love about it!!


  1. Ahhh!!! Can I just say-you are in my head!! lat Monday, our district had an inservice day, and one of the sessions was technology. It was a joke, but they mentioned Google Classroom. They didn't say much, just showed 1 video, but no one really got the gist of it. You have given me that "a-ha moment" that I needed!! Thank you so much! Now I will actually start using it. We are a Google school. My school has 4 Chromebook carts and we are getting a 5th cart. Our students have accounts, too, and I've used Docs with them, but this is going to get so much better now that I know what it can do! You ROCK!!

    1. Thanks for addressing us about the Google Classroom which is intentionally designed hand-in-hand with teachers, educators or academic writers to help them save time, keep classes well-organized as well as for improving communication with students who take UK assignments help and guidance from them. And it is one of the best way to track their progress and accomplish more together anytime, anywhere.

    2. Google Classroom is a combined learning platform for universities that purposes to simplify making, allocating and classifying assignments in a paperless way. Google Classroom is also very useful for teachers and learners who also take cover letter writing services - at CV Folks, because it can beneficial for faculty conferences, facts spreading, or skilled development. Thanks.

  28. Choosing an education system or a method for your child is something only you can do and Montessori education is one of the major options you have. This educational approach was developed by Maria Montessori an Italian educator and physician and it emphasizes more on freedom, independence and respect for the social, physical and psychological development of the child. This education system is becoming very popular across the globe probably because of the many advantages it has over other educational approaches.
