Google Classroom for Group Work

At the faculty meeting on Monday, Mike mentioned the option of using Google Classroom as a collaboration tool for each Core Competency group to use. Although designed for more of a teacher/student model, it can be adapted easily for the type of resource gathering, discussion and sharing we will be doing. Why try it?

  • Provides a central location for people to have ongoing discussions (without big, long email chains)
  • Fully integrates with our Google Drive documents
  • Can be easily shared with faculty in other groups as it makes sense

We wanted to give you a quick introduction to Classroom and invite you to explore this tool. Here are two options for learning more:

  • The first 3:30 minutes of this video can give you a very quick introduction to Classroom. The rest of the video is helpful only if you are interested in launching Classroom for your students.
  • If you want to see a Google Classroom in action, please feel free to explore the Google Classroom Tutorial we created. To access it:

1. Make sure you are logged into your Applewild Google account

2. Go to classroom.google.com

3. To join a Classroom, find and click the “+” sign toward the top right of your screen

4. Enter the Class code: vxvmcj

As always, Mike and Molly are both here to help you explore this resource.
