I mean now a days it seems almost all new generation teachers are pushing towards not to be paperless. Or as you may have heard “the paperless classroom”. I mean we live in a world driven by technology and you see this being pushed into the classrooms more and more now days. With this big technology push in our classrooms many are coming across a tool referred to as Google Classroom.
Google Classroom is an amazing virtual classroom that allows you to be paperless. It’s amazing for teachers and students to communicate or for students to communicate with other students. It a great place for students to find announcements, the syllabus, getting in contact with the teacher or other students at anytime. It a great way for teachers/students to keep track of their work simply by seeing a green checkmark or red x. Google Classroom is simply a great tool to use for classroom management.
I think google classroom is on of my favourite tools since it is compatible with all google accounts and easily assessable. I find it very easy to manoeuvre around and use with many groups of students. It make life just a little bit easier for not only the teacher but the students.
Have you every experienced the google classroom? Used it in your classroom? I would love to hear if you have an negative thoughts or dislikes towards this tool! If you haven’t yet heard about google classroom let me know if it is something you would consider using in your class or what your questions are about it:)
If you are interested in learning a little more about google classrooms or get a look at what it looks like from a teacher perspective vs. a students than check out this Glogster Jenna, Kendra and I made along with a very nice gentlemen who’s name I cannot not remember! We made this Glogster for our ECMP 355 class in 2014.
