Innovative, personal, and practical PD on your time, at your level

Teaching with Google Classroom

Dates: March 16 - April 26 2020

For new users of Google Classroom or current users of Google Classroom looking for tips and ways to approach teaching with digital tools in new ways. Using technology is not about being paperless, it is a mindset around interacting with students and improving learning. In this workshop you will learn how to set up a Google Classroom class with a student centered mindset towards interacting with students.

In this workshop you will experience Google Classroom as a student, this may be the most helpful part of the workshop! The opportunity to see it from the student point of view will help you to better teach with Google Classroom. Each week you will practice what it looks like as a student and then are provided with directions for how to replicate it with your Google Classroom class. Interact with Alice and ask questions to help you get your Google Classroom class set up and running.

Go Slow Workshops™ are 6 weeks. This gives you the opportunity to practice what you have learned before moving on to learning something new. Each week's activities are designed to take about an hour. (Note, this does not include the time you spend with your students to try out the activities.)

Unlike a self paced video course, Go Slow Workshops™ are designed to be interactive and collaborative. Activities for the week are posted on Monday and you have all week to work through the activities and interact with the teacher and other workshop participants. At the end of the 6 weeks the workshop will be archived, but can be found in Google Classroom by using the menu to access "Archived classes."

Workshop not a class. Go Slow Workshops™ are not a graded class. Participate as much or as little as you wish. As the saying goes "You get out of it what you put into it." You can simply lurk and see what is posted or fully interact with Alice and workshop participants. If you would like Continuing Education credits for the Go Slow Workshops™ please fill out this Google Form.

Go Slow Workshops™ are conducted through Google Classroom. Classroom is designed to be collaborative, interactive, and makes sharing easy. For this reason I choose to use Classroom as the platform for the workshops. The default for school G Suite accounts is to RESTRICT you to your school. You will need a PERSONAL Gmail account that ends in to join the workshops. If you would like to use your school G Suite email please have the Google Apps admin whitelist in the admin panel.
