30 Students + 30 Research Papers + 30 Tests + 30 questions = Super Teacher
You have a lot of work to do. And, when we get really busy it is hard to give your students the one on one attention they need. Let’s dream for a moment, of a perfect world where every student gets one on one attention with their teacher. In this world, the teacher is not stressed out about the amount of work and lack of time. In this world, the teacher is reading papers and grading tests with plenty of time. And every student is happily learning.
Seem to good to be true?
Well Google is trying hard to make this dream a reality. In the past, teachers have used a combination of websites, Web 2.0 tool, and learning management systems; none of which fully integrate with one another. Creating a system that is effective, but not efficient. And who can remember all those passwords?
With the introduction of Google Classroom teachers are now able to better manage student activities and assignments. And, since it is a Google product, it works with all the other Google applications seamlessly, with ONE password!
Google Apps for Education has quickly become one of the most popular educational tools in the United States. Its most recent app, Google Classroom, has allowed teachers to change the way they teach and students learn. While many educators have heard of Google Classroom, few have been able to see how it works in an actual classroom. Matt Becker, 5th grade teacher at Central Woodlands 5-6 School in Forest Hills Public Schools, would like to change that.
Click HERE to join us on March 17 from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM for a live webinar event where Matt Becker will share his experience with Google Classroom at the elementary level. In addition to sharing his experiences, Matt will provide demonstrations and tips for teachers who would like to start using Google Classroom with their students. By the end of this webinar, attendees will have a strong understanding of how to use Google Classroom at the elementary level.
While this webinar focuses on the elementary level, secondary educators are encouraged to attend. Many of the experiences and ideas shared will be applicable to all grade levels.
