"Google Classroom: Setting Up, Organizing, Archiving, and More!" 4 - 4:30 pm ET with Jerry Swiatek
Google Classroom is a great online learning platform that can help to facilitate communication, collaboration, and workflow in your classroom. While Google Classroom is easy-to-use, as with any tool or technology, you will get the most out of it when it is set up and organized in a useful fashion - and when you have a better idea of how to get started. Join Jerry Swiatek as he explores how to get started with Google Classroom and shows step-by-step how to set up your students and classes. In addition to sharing some suggestions on what to do and not to do, Jerry will share tips for reducing clutter, searching for items, and archiving your records and materials at the end of the year.
