I'm reading a lot of postings about people with questions about Google Classroom. I just wanted to throw this out there: I have my Google certifications, have led trainings and have used Classroom for years. I'm also familiar with many other technology platforms. If anyone has questions or needs help feel free to PM me. I'd be more than happy to help. Technology is my jam and I love helping teachers get more comfortable with it.

Just putting this out there. Feel free to take me up on it or not.

Thanks so much! I will definitely keep you in mind. Iím hoping to use Seesaw more than Google Classroom...or maybe combine the two?

Thanks for offering. We start with Google classroom on Monday and our learning curve is huge. My principal is something of a technophobe. Although he has discovered Skype this week and heís all over that.

thanks for the offer, GG!

our district is all about G Suite--we are having a faculty meeting in Google Meet on Monday to find out WTH we are doing---it's only going to be a one-hour meeting.

my teaching partner and i let ourselves into the meeting and figured out some camera stuff and talked for about an hour yesterday. we noticed that Zoom had been "added" once we were in our calendars, so thinking that we may be asked to do that in the future. we are aware that there are some things to turn on/off in order to avoid zoombombing...

are you also experienced in zoom?

thanks again!

Question
Old 03-28-2020, 10:52 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #9

I have a question. I am brand new to this google classroom thing. Is there a way that I can see what my student sees? Like what does it look like on their end? We can only add kids from our school. I don't want to hi-jack one of their accounts. I've heard of dummy accounts, but my admin doesn't know how to do that (I think)
Thank you!

You might be able to add a dummy account, but generally it would need to be with a school email address.

Your screen looks almost exactly like the students' screens, it's not that much different. The only main difference that you as admin have is the grading piece and the settings. Is there something specific you're looking to see?

You are wonderful for opening yourself for lots of questions. Our district went this route with K to 8th grade. My students are first graders. Is there a place to get templates for google slides to make for the students to complete. Thank you!! Jeanne

Are you looking for something specific? Like for assignments? The fastest way to do it would be to create a slide you like and the just make a copy of it.

Slides Carnival has different types of templates, but thatís mostly for presentations.

I'd use Google Forms with quick and simple questions. You could even insert emojis and have them pick their favorite. You could put in multiple choice questions.

Also there are add-ons so the questions can be read to them (but if they don't already know how to do that, it might be difficult to do now).

I'd insert the YouTube video in Google Forms. It'll make it super easy. Kids watch the video and answer the questions.

Thank you so much GG for the very generous offer. I literally opened Google Classroom last Saturday and have been trying to teach myself since then. (I won't start on how the district had an opportunity to teach us the basics and spurned it, or how we're supposed to do this all on our own, home alone, without any of our materials )

Right now I have links to other sites like zearn and lalilo.

I also put a scholastic news video and asked the kids to leave a comment about what they learned.

I like the idea of using forms - I may come back and bug you about that later.

Right now we're just being asked to "connect" with kids and provide a platform for communication.

If you have a million different links like Zearn and Lalilo, I'd pin them at the top of Classroom so that the kids can easily access them.

For the Scholastic News video you could easily do a Form with a 3-2-1 or just have them write a few sentences about what they liked (depending on your grade).

If you're looking for a platform to connect, I'd use Zoom or Google Meets. I'd check with your district. I'm hearing a lot of people being told they can't use Zoom or they MUST use Zoom and/or Meets.

Good luck.

Thank you for the idea of pinning something at the top.

You already taught me something super helpful. I was going in each day and moving them up.

And I'd like to do a Google Hangout (Meets) with my class on Monday or Tuesday.

I will come back and ask you about Forms next week.

Thanks again!!

I took a 2 week workshop in Google apps almost 3 years ago, but then didn't keep up with things. It's been a real learning experience in the last 2 weeks and my brain hurts.

I didn't know you can embed a video into google forms. That's pretty cool. I just used view pure for the first time today. I have been writing down hints as I go, looking over my old class notes, and googling answers like crazy.

You may hear from me, and thank you for offering!!

Seesaw question: Is the only way to embed a video via youtube?

The main thing we're supposed to be doing is uploading instructional videos for students follow along with, and none of the 5 seesaw how-to videos I just sat through explained how to do this .

I tried googling it and see where you can add a video link for students to click on via youtube- is there any way to do this via zoom instead? I don't really want to put all of my stuff out there on youtube, and that would be yet another new thing to learn how to do (never made a youtube video either)...district implied they want us using zoom but I see other teachers who have already created their lessons using youtube.

I'm really uncomfortable adding anything to YouTube. Even if you set the settings as tight as you can, I don't feel it's as secure as using Google Classroom or Seesaw.

To add a video to Seesaw:
1) click on the green + add button
2) click on send announcement
3) Click on add attachment
4) Click on video
5) make your video
6) Upload and write a message and send

You have a 5 minute limit on it so if you want something longer or if you want to show something while you're teaching you'll have to use something like Screencastfify and then download it and attach it which you can do.

Seesaw doeesn't really lend itself to the instructional videos. For those I'd use Screencastify and attach it. I hope it helps.

Okay, mostly feeling comfortable with Seesaw now, at least for my purposes.

So I moved on to google classrooms. I see how to create videos and assignments. This is possibly the dumbest question ever. How do students complete and turn in assignments? The only instructional videos they gave us showed how to push out assignments, but the examples were things like essays where presumably the student would do a google doc or whatever and attach it. I see how older students would use this- not clear at all for my students.

My 2nd graders will be using google classroom while K-1 is using Seesaw. My 2nd graders are on the level of K-early 1st students. In Seesaw, I set it up so they will watch and follow along with a video lesson, and then I put out a short reading page for them to do. They will record themselves reading the page and send it to me as their exit ticket. Is there a way for students to do this in google classroom? And if so, how? If it makes a difference, the 2nd graders will be on chromebooks.

If I remember correctly, you teach sped. I do too. Iím keeping my sped 2nd graders on Seesaw (but linking them through Classroom) because I want them reading their sight words to me.

If your kids are that low, Iíd keep them on Seesaw since thatís what theyíre used to using and tell anyone who asks itís a modification to meet their IEP. If theyíre not comfortable with Classroom I wouldnít introduce it now.

You need to hit return every time. This is what allows the kids to see their grades and your comments.

They don't know either app- 1st and 2nd grade don't normally do either. I know K does a ton with SeeSaw now, but IDK when they started that/if these kids would remember that from 2 years ago. The district is also being super strict about everyone using the same platforms across the board. They're not letting us create our own classes in any of these- they created gen ed classrooms and added all of the specialists. Honestly I think it would be rougher on them to have to learn and use the two things at once- it makes more sense to me that all of their assignments from every teacher would be in the same place.

The only way I know for them to record themselves is using something like Screencastify or another extension. Honestly, I think youíre going to run into all kinds of privacy issues if you try to do this. Iíd talk to someone on your district before you try this using anything other than Seesaw.

Once a student turns a document in to me and I read it, edit it, and return it, how many times can we keep going back and forth with the same document? Is there a limit?

Google Docs--sending comments back to student
Old 04-02-2020, 05:45 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #35

Thanks so much for your generous offer to help. It has been overwhelming. On the upside I'm learning from my mistakes. However, I am feeling "blue" about making so many mistakes!

I use Google Docs a lot for assignments. My fourth graders tell me they are not getting my comments back. I comment and thought they'd see them automatically. Do I need to use the share button in the top corner of the doc? I have been reluctant to do that because so many extra teaches are sharing my classroom and I think their emails are connected to the share button.

Your insight is much appreciated.

We received an email asking us to go on google hangouts, discord, and google classroom! I'm sure when I get that far to implement these I will come a callin. Thank you in advance.

What is Seesaw? Iv'e heard good things about it.

I love Seesaw and itís great for kinder. Itís a platform that allows you to communicate with parents (although I still use Dojo for communication) and assign tasks for students to complete with out having kids print anything out.

They can record themselves, write things, make journal entries, etc.

One new feature is you can create skill categories so you can tag an activity with a skill (IE: letter ID) which will be great for report cards.

I assign it through Google Classroom. You can also assign things to certain students or a whole class and you can assign things ahead of time. Itís super user friendly.

Did you add the comments using the comments box?

Try using the squiggle box to send it instead of the send box.

squiggle box?

I love the name squiggle box, and I tried sharing blindly with one of my students using the squiggle box.
However my fourth grader didn't get back to be about how successful I had been.

Tell me--why is that squiggle box there--what job does it do? It's cute but I couldn't get any more details when I Googled'd to find more shortcut details.

Thanks for your very generous support as I muddle my way toward knowing how to navigate the Google Classroom

The squiggle box allows you to send the document not only to students, but also other people. I believe thatís really the only purpose. I also thought kids would be able to see comments using it. Perhaps not?

so interesting, you answered another question

Great answer because it answered another question.

My send box has many, many, many teachers who joined my Google Classroom (guidance, art, resource, social work, and on and on and on) when we went to Distance Learning. I noticed that about 10 or more teachers also get notified when I share. I have been going to that dialogue box and deleting their names from the share,

So, two questions:
1) If I squiggle, then I don't need to delete all the other names form the Share?
2) Is there an easy way to delete all those names from the send?

I can't tell you how appreciative I am of your generous connection with me, a Rookie Google Classroom user.

Thank you.

WHat squiggle box are you talking about? The arrow line going up? I am lost by this convo and I thought I was a pretty good user.

I did some playing so Rosie can see what happens from the student prospective. As a student they cannot see comments on the actual document unless you return the assignment. Even then, they have to go INTO the assignment to see them, but can only do that if the assignment is returned (or they can unsubmit so they can see them).

However, if you grade them inside classroom and you use the tools on the sidebar to make your comments, they will see them when they view the assignment. They show up as private comments as you can see in the student view of the assignment.

Your feedback is great, comment troublesome

My fourth graders had used Google Classroom in a limited fashion before our coronavirus break! I thought using comments to help them revise my writing assignments would be easy. It's like learning a new language and I'm a slow learning. Your screenshots are remarkably helpful. Thank you.

Do you just link to SeeSaw or can you link a student directly to an assigned SeeSaw activity?
