This presentation is intended for adults that are supporting K-12 learners with distance/hybrid learning.
Google Classroom is an easy tool helping educators efficiently manage and assess progress, while enhancing connections with learners from school, from home, or on the go. Google Classroom allows upcoming homework assignments, teacher announcements, student questions, and other important class information to be shared with a student when they log in. Within Google Classroom students can submit assignments and teachers can provide feedback, assign grades, and return the work. This tool can also allow all of your child’s work to stay stored on Google Drive. With Google Classroom all student assignments can be automatically added to the Google Calendar based on their due dates. Essentially, the Google Classroom is where all your child’s schoolwork can be created, exchanged, and stored.
Join presenter Ben Sondgeroth to better understand Google Classroom and learn how you can best support your child’s use of this distance learning tool.
