What is Google Classroom?
Have a look at this video here for a quick synopsis…
Classroom is a new tool in Google Apps for Education that weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and organise assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease. It lets students organise their work, complete and turn it in, and communicate directly with their teachers and peers.
Classroom helps teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. When teachers create assignments, they can choose to share a single document, or automatically make a copy for each student. They can quickly see who has or hasn’t completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback.
I am looking forward to leading the training session tomorrow night and hope that the participants will be up for giving it a go with their classes. If you are interested in signing up for future training in any aspect of Google Apps, please register your interest with the CLPL team (firstname.lastname@example.org)
