This year is certainly flying by.  I want to make you aware of a new communication tool my classes and I are implementing…Google Classroom.

Each of my five classes has its own Google Classroom that the students access through their school Gmail accounts.  The classroom contains updated assignments, calendars and easy access to Google apps that help students complete and turn in assignments.  Since every class has its own folder in Drive, I no longer need to search through my inbox for individual assignments.  They all show up in an assigned class folder.  Here’s a screenshot of what a typical page might look like.  If you’d like to find out more about how this technology is serving your student, please have them open Google Classroom from their school Gmail account so they can give you a tour.
