Do YOU Have What It Takes to be a Google Ninja?
(pictures coming soon!)
Go to classroom. google.com to join the Google Classroom. Once you access the class, you will see a plus (+) sign in the upper right hand corner. Click the sign and choose to join a class. The class code for the Ninja Academy is ctbid6.
Once you enter the code, you will be enrolled in the class. You will NOT have to type in the code again. You will notice that there is a test and video tutorials for each belt. The videos are there to help familiarize you with the particular app. Once you are ready to take the test, just click on the link for the Google Form and take the test. There is also a link to the leaderboard. Just like last year, you can take the tests as many times as need be.
If you have difficulty accessing Google Classroom, please email Lonny Harper.

Creative Use for Google Classroom!
From Kassidy Bynoe, a teacher at Carver Road Middle School:
Here's an alternate use for Google Classroom: Athletic teams support/organization. As the track coach for Carver Road, I created a Google Classroom for my team. I have used the classroom to send the meet schedules, make announcements about practice, send how-to videos for different skills we are practicing, share pictures from our meets and much more. I actually got the idea from one of my 8th graders. Google Classroom has been an effective way for me to communicate with the 6th and 7th graders since they are not on my hall. My athletes can ask questions via the comments sections.
