I need some advice from those of you who use Google Classroom. After several years of asking, we have finally received email addresses for our 4th graders so that we may begin using Google Classroom and other Google products. Now we are expected to start using these, but we've had no professional development. We are hoping our district tech guru will offer some sessions after school, but until then....could any of you point me in the direction of ideas and things to do with this resource?

There is a facebook group called Google Classroom Gab Group run by Daniel Mault. Very helpful.

He also has a website with videos on how to do different things that I thought were helpful getting started. https://edtech101.org/

He has a youtube channel. Here is his getting started video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7U3m0oyo7s

Go in and make a classroom. Play around with it. If you can, if you don't have a personal gmail account, make one so you can join as a student and see what it looks like from the student side.

They have a really good online certification program.

I did both the level 1 and level 2 certification programs.

When I first started, I felt a little overwhelmed, too. I bought “Introduction to Google Classroom” by Annie Brock and it was really helpful to me. There are a TON of websites that can help you, but I appreciated looking at the information in a book format.

I start out each year by posting a writing response for everyone to answer. At this point you could do one on just about anything. Make an assignment asking for a simple answer (for your sanity) that they can all answer by posting below. Or if you feel more confident, make a google doc with the prompt on it, and add it as an assignment (make sure the option "make a copy") is selected for students. Then share your class code and have them log into google and get started.

If you haven't used google products, try them out together. They are similar to other products, but stored online. I did this last year with young students - I made a google slide (nothing but naming it) and shared it on my account. Each student came in and joined into my google slide. I had them all insert a slide, then had them take the slide with their number (my kids have numbers - you could easily assign them). Then we all learned together how to add text boxes, type in the box, change the text, add pictures.... 4th graders will catch on quickly if they have used other products.
