GOOGLE CLASSROOM 3.0: The Distance Learning Refresh Edition

Course No. CM403n, CM503n

In the original Google Classroom course, we were introduced to the basic features of Google Classroom and put them to use with students. In the second Google Classroom course, we took our practices to the next level by building a simple website, upping our communication with parents/guardians, and rocking some rubrics. In this course, we will explore features that are desperately needed in a Distance Learning environment. We will practice attaching and annotating PDF files, explore grading and returning question answers, attach videos we've made ourselves, as well as an individual assignment where you explore the EDU 90 series to find what works best for you.

This course will help educators K-12 learn how to use more advanced Google Classroom features to improve instruction and student engagement. Educators in this course will utilize their own Google Classroom and implement one or more lessons with students. Collaboration with other educators is also possible. 

This course is applicable for any K-12 teachers and/or administrators who wish to better their technology skills. There is no textbook for this class; all references and materials are located on-line.

Please turn in individual assignments upon completion. Educators who are not currently teaching courses should contact the instructor to discuss alternate assignment possibilities.

Note: Google Classroom is now available to anyone with a personal gmail account. This course is open to all educators. If you do not have access to a Google Education account through your school district you can try Google Classroom. Sign up here!
