The best thing about using YouTube as educators and students is the ability to pause and rewatch as many times as necessary until you understand what the heck you are doing! Here are my top three Alice Keeler YouTubes for Beginners. I hope as you pause and rewatch that your confidence grows and you feel more confident using Google Classroom!
My first pick is Create your first assignment in Google Classroom:
Second Pick Helps Build Confidence Using Spreadsheets
If you are like me, you might feel easily frustrated while using spreadsheets, but they really have a ton of uses if we can push through the frustration and get more comfortable using this tool!
Third Pick is Parent Contact Log
This data is absolutely going to help this year and Alice has made it easy to log and contact parents, so check this out!
Remember, there is no shame in being a beginner in tech! If these help you, share with other teachers who could use some help, too!
