What Your Colleague Would Like to Share--Kristen DiCarlo
I now have a paperless classroom thanks to Google Classroom. Classroom is a free web-based platform that integrates your Google Apps for Education account with all your Google Apps services, including Google Docs, Gmail, and Google Calendar. It’s designed to save you time and paper.
Students can keep track of what’s due on the assignments page and on Calendar and begin working with just a click. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom.
There is so much I love about Classroom! I can give immediate “live” feedback on my students’ work as they are working. We can quietly conference simply through typing back and forth. I can grade anywhere! And my students can never use the excuse, “My dog ate my homework” because it is all saved on Google Drive.
If you are interested in learning more about Google Classroom, I will be presenting at Tech Fest in January!
