Google Classroom Expands Its Offering
Field Trip Coordination
Recently, all of the 6th grade students (and teachers) at my Intermediate School went on a Watershed Field Trip that was a required district field trip. There were several moving pieces and elaborate plans to make this work relatively smoothly. However, if all the corresponding teachers, in addition to the community members, had a Classroom set up, simple questions and information could have been shared extremely easily, making this even less of a headache for all of those involved in the planning.
Every now and then, there are parents who decide to homeschool their children. An easy set up would be to have a Google Classroom set up, so the parent could be linked with a licensed teacher to provide suggestions and even some materials so that effective instruction could continue. Or, if the parent happens to already have the resources, the teacher could offer further discussion points or resources to the homeschooled child, all with the ease of Classroom.
