Google Classroom 101 (2020 Version)

Google Classroom 101 (2020 Version)


This presentation was presented at Youngsaeng High School in October 2020 as a workshop for the teachers to learn how best to use Google Classroom and G Suite in their classrooms and for their students.

Whereas I've presented on Google Classroom before (with a presentation of the same title), with this presentation, I tried to focus specifically on "What Google Classroom is good for" (presented in the Topic Overview).

To that end, I broke the presentation down into SIX major "selling points" for teachers.

1. Organization: Teacher Lessons Plans keep you organized & on task
2. Distribution: of Handouts allows Teachers to go paperless (& USB-less)
3. Collection: of Homework helps keep Teachers organized
4. Correction: of Homework helps Teachers use rubrics, comment, and grade
5. Analysis: with the built-in Gradebook makes grading a breeze
6. Reporting: features can help Teachers keep Parents in the loop
