Session 5: Intro to Google Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The goal is to help participants create Google Classroom from the ground-up.  We will begin with a class set-up to help participants create individual assignments and lessons within their grade level and content area.  Our goal is to provide one-on-one support with a colleague to help facilitate this process for participants and to answer individual questions.  This is a workshop model with one-on-one training/support.  You will walk out of the session with your Google Classroom set-up.

(This is open to all participants)
