Would you like to save time, be more organized, and improve communication between you and your students? Would you like to be able to do all of this using the same application? Educators can use Google Classroom to create assignments, conduct class discussions, distribute course materials, and send announcements. All materials can be automatically filed into the students’ Google Drive, so there is no uploading or downloading of materials necessary. Students can also share resources and collaborate with others through Google Classroom. Google Classroom also allows educators to view what their students are working on in “real time” and provide feedback and grades. It is not necessary for your school to be a “Google School” in order to take this course, however, Google does not allow you to use Google Classroom with your students unless your school has signed up for a free G Suite for Education Account.
Computers will be provided, but you can bring your own device if you prefer. If you are using your own device, please make sure you have successfully logged in to the Carthage portal before the first class session so you will be able to log in to the College’s wireless network. Registration will end on Wednesday, March 28.
