This lesson was adapted from the Google for Education Training Center Materials:When starting the school year, you may get your student class list on paper, or perhaps electronically. For a whole school year, you will be assigning and collecting work to the students on this list. To help you organize your school year, it’s a good idea to digitize any paper-based class rosters you receive so you can work with them online.G Suite for Education provides you with several tools to help you with this. In this lesson we will discuss Google Classroom and (just in case you don’t have Classroom access yet) other Google tools to meet those same goals.Google Classroom is a tool built specifically for teachers and students. It provides a platform for communicating with students, assigning and collecting work, and providing learning resources. It doesn’t matter if you have one student or one hundred in your classes; Google Classroom will help you setup a digital classroom quickly and easily so you can begin focusing on teaching and learning. Classroom also integrates with other Google products like Gmail and Google Drive to create a feature-rich toolset.The materials you have access to in Google Drive are readily available in Google Classroom. The “About” section is the perfect spot to place all critical documents such as your course syllabus, the bell schedule, and your school code of conduct. Documents that have lived in Drive have a more meaningful home in your Google Classroom’s “About” section for students to reference.If Classroom is not an option for your institution, don’t worry! There are other Google tools (like Google Sheets) that you can use to organize your communications and assignments with students. We’ll look at these too.Let’s go through the lesson now, so you can get your rosters ready for the school year.
