By design, Google Classroom fosters interactions and collaboration. However, you have to use it that way! Your first step is to decide that Google Classroom is your home base. Post everything to Google Classroom even if it is not an activity that requires digital elements. You can always provide digital feedback and students can ask a digital question, no matter the task. Classroom is Google Drive management, meaning it connects to your Google Drive to help you deliver a dynamic and collaborative learning experience with students. All student documents are loaded to a folder in Google Drive for you to easily find and assess student work.
