206 NEXTSTEPS with Google Classroom

It brings together Google Drive, Google Docs and Gmail to help teachers create and organise assignments and communicate with students; all without any paper and available anyplace, anytime and on any device.

Google Classroom has had several major updates in the last two years. This course will go over the basics of using it with students at years 3 – 13, as well more advanced areas such as:

  • Archiving the class at the end of the year;
  • Reusing last year’s learning tasks;
  • Quizzes;
  • Multiple teachers;
  • Assisting teachers who need support;
  • Using Google Classroom for appraisal;
  • Markbook functionality and effective assessments at any level;
  • Dealing with NCEA moderation.

This is a hands-on, practical and collaborative ‘bring your own device’ class.
