It’s hard to believe that today is August 1st already! In just a few short weeks, your students will be returning to the classroom. Today’s Tuesday Tech Tips email has to do with Google Classroom. Whether you’re a seasoned user or a teacher who is planning to use Google Classroom for the first time, we’ve got you covered.
For those new to Google Classroom, be sure and visit our NWOCA Training website. There, you will find lots of information – two pieces stand out for new Google Classroom users. First, you can watch this archived webinar (and accompanying presentation) that will provide an overview of the Google Classroom product. Then, use this handy checklist to build your skills. Each item on the checklist is linked to a very short tutorial video. The best advice we can give is just to dive right in!
For those more experienced with Google Classroom, use the checklist to see what skills you can improve on. Have you cleaned up your Classroom to get it ready for this coming school year? Want to go even further this year? Here are six tips to help you “level up” with Classroom. Check out the Classroom section on the Google Training Center for more advanced help. Finally, consider attending our #NWOCARoadShow17 in Bryan on August 9th. There will be multiple Google Classroom sessions to help you increase your knowledge of this awesome product.
If you get stuck or need help, feel free to schedule a virtual tech coaching session with us.
