Getting the Most from Your Google Resource

GOOGLE CLASSROOM


Google Classroom is a Learning Management System (LMS) created by Google to help teachers better organize digital content and possibly move to a paperless classroom. Classroom could change your teaching method like never before. Grading is more efficient, it enriches the classroom experience for students, and helps you connect with students on a level in which they can relate - for FREE. It can help teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and easily communicate with their classes. It also provides an avenue for teachers to make announcements and start a class discussion.

When students login using the class code you provide, they instantly become a member of your Google Classroom. Google Classroom does not have ads, but is completely free! The student activity is restricted within the members of your class and students can only access classes within the school system's domain.

See the Classroom 101 intro video below for more information.
