Google Classroom is a type of learning management system. This resource helps teachers create virtual classrooms where they can post assignments, collect student products, and provide feedback, all in one place.
To begin using Google Classroom, you will first need to complete Santee's Google Classroom Learning Module (see below). You can scroll through the slides to view them, and you will want to click the links in the presentation to view all of the lesson materials. Also, you will want to complete the short, end of module exit ticket when you finish reviewing the presentation to fully activate your Google Classroom account. Finally, we suggest you complete this module using the Google Chrome browser to ensure the best user experience.
If you are interested in learning how to invite parents/guardians to get regular email updates on their child's assignments, etc. in Google Classroom, please see this document created by our own Stacy Roberts.
We are offering optional “live” online trainings during the week of April 27 - May 1 for those of you wanting extra support in using Google Classroom's basic features, as well as some intermediate level sessions. However, it is important that you first go through the online resources provided above to create your classroom BEFORE these sessions. Without this, you will not be able to participate in the activities during the session. To find dates/times for these sessions, click the "Calendar of Live Webinars" link on the left hand side of this page.
