Description: The article is about my classroom login. This article focuses on the author’s workflow solution by using Google Classroom’s strong integration with Google Drive. The author shows how to use Google Classroom to teach students.
I am going to talk about why I’m using Google classroom as opposed to other programs such as Schoology. I’ve used Schoology and loved it last year,but I’ve moved away from that now. I am now settling at the moment on Google classroom. It is so good on how it integrates with Google Drive or Google Docs.
I am going to show you my specific ways about managing my workflow with Google classroom,I can show you the way of structuring my Google Drive folders with the classroom. This particular method is a great way to ultimately save time,that is the purpose of many teachers,they want to save time.
If you haven’t heard of Google classroom,I am going to give you a basic overview of Google classroom. I’ll discuss my workflow. This is my Google classroom homepage,it has all my classes,let’s have a look at this. This is my year 12 IT class. I’ve a stream of announcements and assignments,I’ve a list of the students,I’ve a page which I’ll show you more in a minute.
Students have assignments,I’ve posted this to them. Every student has been given access to this file,it is Google Doc,I set it up so that students can have this file and they can edit this file. When they’ve finished with it,they can submit the finished workbook.
When I click on that,I can see who has submitted it and who hasn’t submitted it. This is my Google Drive classroom,it automatically creates a folder called classroom in your Google Drive,every Google classroom is unique,let’s go to that class.
This is the summary book,it has everyone’s work. I can click on one of the students’s work,it will open it up,I can suggest some improvements to his work. I can give him immediate feedback. If I click on the about page, you can see that I’ve created a few permanent links,I’ve got a folder called class materials for students,that’s where all the folders located.
The files are located there. I am going to collect a calendar and a forum,let’s look at the materials. If I click on that,they’ll see folders and files. This has linked to my Google Drive folder that I’ve shared with them. They can go into the folder,they can click on the folders,they can see the relevant things they need.
I can open that in Drive. In my Google Drive,I’ve got the folder that Google classroom gives me. It has all my Google classrooms and assignments in there. There are all my students assignments. We’ve got the classroom folder,I’ve got a separate folder,this is a folder which has all my classes in for next year.
I’ve got two folders,one is the class materials,that’s the one that I shared with the class before on Google classroom. The other one is my teacher resources follow,I’ll keep them separate, because there are some things that I don’t want to share with them.
The template has a copy of them. If I were to give the students access to the templates,they might accidentally go on and get a copy of the template and not use the wire I sent them.
It’s very important that you have those separated,that’s how I’ve done it. All those students have access to my resources. I may share it with them at a later date. Hopefully you found something useful. If not,you can put a comment below,I will answer that for you. If you’re a teacher of my school,you can reach out to me,I’ll show you how to do that.
