50 Things to Go Further with Google Classroom: A Student-Centered Approach

Libbi Miller and I are excited to announce the follow up to our best selling book “50 Things You Can Do With Google Classroom.” Our new book “50 Things to Go Further with Google Classroom: A Student-Centered Approach” helps you to go beyond the basics and use Google Classroom to transform instruction. Technology offers the opportunity to switch from a teacher-centered model of instruction to a student-centered model. In our book, we provide suggestions for how to use Google Classroom to get started with a student-centered classroom.

Lisa Highfill (@lisahighfill), author of the book “The Hyperdoc Handbook,” provides the foreword. Catlin Tucker (@catlin_tucker), author of the book “Blended Learning in Grades 4-12” and “Creatively Teach the Common Core Literacy Standards With Technology: Grades 6-12,” provides the voice of the teacher for the impact of a student-centered classroom. Students share the impact a student-centered model has had on their learning.
