Continuing the discussion from The Fruits of Your Labor: EDM510 Summer 2016 Final Project!:
For my final project, I decided to create a Google Classroom page for each of the classes that I teach. I chose this project because this will be the first year that my students will be using Chromebooks. I have been hearing a lot lately about how what a wonderful platform Google Classroom is, but I had no idea how to use it. I thought that creating this would help me to feel more confident about using Google classroom this fall.
I spent many hours on this project. I had trouble getting logged in with my account, so I had to contact my school district about activating my account. Once I figured out how to log in, I created a page for each of the subjects that I teach. I also chose a theme for each page. I teach Science to two classes, so I created a page for each of my classes.
I learned a lot through completing this assignment. I learned how to navigate through Google classroom. I also learned how to add links for my students to click on in assignments or announcements. I also learned how to create a Google form (in the form of a self-grading quiz, survey, form, etc.) I will definitely be using Google Forms a lot in the future. I also learned a lot about Google Slides, which is great because my students can access presentations on their own devices. I also learned more about using Prezi and Padlet, which I have links to in my Google Classroom. This was overall a great learning experience, and I’m excited to learn even more ways to use Google Classroom.
Since only those at my school have access, here is a video about my Google classroom project:
