Google's command central for classroom management, instructional organization, communication, and a teacher's easiest route to both peace of mind and rockstar status, Classroom takes Google Apps for Education to the next (and wonderful) level.

This course introduces you to the scope of the tool, and provides background about the why's and how's of implementation. It's the course for you whether your district has just signed up or you're trying to persuade your administration to get started.

Classroom weaves together the efficiency of all the other Google tools and provides educators the ultimate one-stop resource from which you can:

  • set up your classes,
  • create, send, collect, comment on, and grade assignments
  • communicate with students, parents, colleagues and administration
  • enable students to communicate with each other
  • make your work easier
  • engage your students from anywhere you, or they, might be! 

At the end of the course, you can choose to complete an AOK that translates into work that you might do as part of your professional endeavors anyway (or that you'd want to do given the impetus and time) and that you can apply with your students.

The micro-badge you earn demonstrates your competency with the fundamentals of Google Classroom, including a solid grasp of why and how it could benefit your organization and students.
