Google Classroom for Adult Education (series)
Google Classroom is a free Blended Learning system that allows educators to create online classes where they can then enroll students, distribute, grade, or return assignments, communicate with individuals or entire classes, send feedback, and see everything in one place.
This series will cover the basics of Google Classroom through intermediate and advanced. Topics include: steps of creating classes, changing themes, class codes, assignment streams, adding topics, enrolling students, adding co-teachers, organizing streams, calendaring, grading, the gradebook, how students turn in assignments, ideas on viewing a classroom as a student, archiving classes, adding co-teachers, and more as time allows or is requested (per requesting program*).
Prerequisites: All participants must have basic computer skills and know their login information for a public Google (@gmail.com) or G Suite EDU (@district.org) email address.
Each part of an OTAN series is conducted as a "hands-on workshop" where participants are encouraged to follow along on their own devices. Questions are answered throughout and materials are shared at the end of each session. The desired outcome of this OTAN series' is that participants will have a working understanding of Google Classroom as a teacher, be able to create classes, assignments, grade assignments, enroll students, understand the processes that a student must complete to complete and submit assignments. Detailed descriptions of topics covered will be included on the CA Adult Education Professional Development calendar as they are scheduled and appear there.
