Going back to school with the support you need means everything! That’s why I love Alice Keeler’s Back To Classroom YouTube playlist! It’s updated on the best ways to utitlize Google Classroom. Check it out if you are hoping to learn how to use Screencastify for more engaging lessons or want to use Google Sites as your class website! These are my top 2 favorites, but only the tip of the iceberg.
Clean Up Your Google Drive
My Google Drive is a NIGHTMARE!! Unless I’m using a document or file consistently, I have to search a few minutes to find what I need, if I do find it. If you are like me and want to start the year fresh and organized, let’s clean up our Hot Mess Google Drive!
Join the Back To Classroom Community
I am a community-minded person and educator. I learn best in collaboration with others and I learn new things that I’d never in a million years think of by myself, from others. When I learn better edtech, I share and am grateful for others when they do, too. Whether you are advanced or beginning in your Google Classroom or LMS training, you are invited to the Back To Classroom Community! There are free webinars on how to use your favorite Google Classroom apps (like Schoolytics, Screencastify, and Mote) even more efficiently. I hope to see you there!
