I love my iPad as much as any tech specialist, but there’s also much to love about Chrome and the supports found in Google Classroom! It hasn’t been that long since districts were forced to choose between using Windows or Apple operating systems, but not today. Many of my schools employ both platforms for different programs or projects, making Google tools even more useful. In this post, I just want to share some links and resources for learning more about this incredible classroom support.
In her popular blog TeacherTech, Alice Keeler provides handy tutorials, guides, and tip sheets for teachers wanting to learn how to use Google tools. Her resources are designed to support the not-so-tech-savvy teacher, as well as the more skilled user. Better yet, she offers practical ideas and examples for incorporating them into the curriculum.
The Google Apps Classroom Team has created their own lists, one of which I found especially helpful when getting started. It’s called 32 Ways to Use Google Apps and downloads (appropriately enough!) in a Google Doc format.
