They say teachers are the pioneer of this world, they lay the foundation of thoughts in a person, and even during this pandemic, they are trying their best to educate their students.
As the world is under lockdown, students can’t come to school to learn, so the teachers are making sure they reach the students at their home through online classes.
Although, not all educators are aware of the new technology in the market and if you are one of them, we suggest you try Google Classroom. This will help you to manage assignments, grade work, and also will provide students with feedback options as you have done in your classroom.
1. Anyone can use Google classroom through their Gmail account or G Suite account. G Suite account is suitable if you are using it for teaching. You can set up a G Suite administrator account for your school if necessary.
G suite for education accounts allows schools to decide which Google services they want their students should use.
It also provides additional privacy and protection of data which we know is a must for a school setting. The Google Classroom app is also provided for Android, iOS, and Chrome OS devices.
2. Create a class. Students will receive assignments and your announcements in a space of each Google Classroom. Visit classroom.google.com to get started. You’ll have your class up in no time.
3. The next step is to invite students to your classroom for getting enrolled. You can do this by way of email invitation or code.
4. You also have the option of grading students by choosing ‘Total Points’ or ‘Weighted by category’ grading system. Or if you don’t want to create any competition between the students, you can simply choose ‘No overall Grade’.
6. You can create quizzes by importing quizze grades and return grades to students.
7. Setup live online classes. Keep students engaged to make them feel they are connected to schools and their studies with video conferencing using Google Meet right form Classroom.
8. We have also provided an option for students who don’t have an internet connection. By clicking on how to help students you can find the details.
9. For students who have low vision, they can choose to use a screen reader with the classroom.
10. If you have any problem while having a classroom you can get the support you need. You can ask for how to manage the class or how to keep students connected and keep them motivated.
