Seven Tips for Using Google Classroom

Does your school district use Google Classroom? If you’re not familiar, Google Classroom is a free tool that’s included in G Suite for Education. It “helps students and teachers organize assignments, boost collaboration, and foster better communication.”

Every teacher wants to find ways to make teaching more productive and meaningful. Huntington offers a few ways to put Google Classroom to work:

  1. Share information, such as assignments, materials, and questions with students and other co-teachers.
  2. Manage multiple classes and share posts across classes (including announcements, assignments, or questions).
  3. Co-teach with up to 20 other instructors at a time.
  4. Enrich class assignments by adding YouTube videos, PDFs, or other materials you pull into Google Drive.
  5. Improve communication by starting and managing class discussions, sharing resources, giving real-time feedback, and engaging students in the class discussion stream. Parents can also sign up for an email summary of their students’ work.
  6. Integrate your work with other Google tools, like Google Docs, Calendar, Drive, Gmail, and Forms.
  7. Keep your students organized by encouraging them to track class work and materials, share resources with classmates via the class stream, submit assignments, and keep track of grades.
