Supporting Learners with Google Classroom - EDU-X798O
Bring Time-Savings and Productivity to Your Teaching Practice
Google Tools have been firmly embraced by many educational institutions because of their ability to foster collaboration and efficiency. Google Workspaces (formerly “GSuite”) is perhaps the most familiar range of offerings, including Google Docs, Slides, Forms, and Sheets. One of the newest layers to the family of Google Tools is Google Classroom. This Learning Ecosystem allows teachers to seamlessly leverage Google’s communication features as well as some new organizational tools. Google Classroom is built on the Google Workspaces foundation, so it is recommended that you feel comfortable using the Google Workspaces or are willing to spend additional time learning these tools throughout the course.
Educators who complete this Google Classroom training course will:
- Create a Google Classroom interface to maximize its impact when working with learners of all backgrounds
- Design unique learning experiences by integrating both Google Workspace Tools (Docs, Slides, etc.) and external tools that maximize student access to curriculum and encourage creativity
- Implement/Leverage all available feedback tools for whole group, small group, and individual level feedback
