Google has made some changes to Google Classroom since we last worked with the tool in June. So to help make sure that everyone was on the same page, I shared out these changes, as well as included some did you know items, in my Welcome Back Tech Training to staff last week.

New Items:

  • Where students submit their work to their teacher has been relocated on the page.
  • Unable to remove Classworks page anymore
  • New sorting features when assessing student work
  • Ability to access menus in files while assessing student work
  • Adding comments to comment bank on the fly
  • Ability to use rubrics right through Google Classroom
  • Filter topics

Some Reminders:

  • Why it could be helpful for students to create new files right from the assignment in Google Classroom as opposed to creating from Google Drive.
  • Why teachers might want to have assignments to ‘ungraded’ and indicate the amount of points in the description/instructions of the assignment.
  • Using student selector feature through Google Classroom mobile app

As always, if you have any questions, you know where to find me.

And that is my Spiel…
