Google Classroom

Starting a fresh new year in a new position

was a great opportunity for me to introduce my students to a new way of learning. That was through Google Classroom. The students were already familiar with Google Docs, though this was still new for them too.

I introduced Google Classroom subject by subject initally. I had to be mindful of the fact that we didn’t have devices for each student to use.  There were a couple of hurdles to get over, like anything new being introduced, but this was a great experience for both the students and myself. Many doors opened for the class by using Google Classroom – lots of group / collaborative work took affect, and the learning conversations between peers and myself were very valuable.
I have continued to use Google throughout my teaching and have added even more tools provided by Google to my kete.
