Wow, it’s been too long since my last post! I’m sure you all can sympathize…a new school year is upon us, forcing us out of our summer relaxation, back to the world of being on time, meeting deadlines, and the most important task of all: educating and inspiring young people!
It’s no wonder teachers are exhausted 🙂
As I’ve began using Google Classroom, I’ve noticed a few things I thought I’d share.
When creating assignments, Classroom provides three options to distribute documents to students:
- allow students to view
- allow students to edit
- make copy for each student
- A Co-Teacher option…this is extremely beneficial in a CWC environment
- A Group option … I miss the ability to place students in groups and share a different document version with each group. I know there are ways around this, but this is one feature I desperately miss from Doctopus!
- A test creation and discussion board feature … I use Schoology for this now, and it’s great. It would just be nice to be able to get all of these features from Classroom!
