This past year I have had the opportunity, along with my colleagues at Penn Manor, to use Google Classroom in my agricultural classroom. Google Classroom is part of the Google Apps for Education suite that streamlines so many of the great Google tools I love - Google Docs, Google Forms, Google Sheets and Google Drawings (I could go on). This short video shows how to set up your classes, add students and post items online using Google Classroom. This learning management system allows you to post announcements, assignments and collect grades all in one place that seamlessly incorporates outside files and Google tools.
Below you will see my dashboard of classes. It will list the classes along with any upcoming assignments. (We just switched semesters today, so not many assignments are posted). As you can see, you as a teacher can join other teacher's classes/groups as we have with the Greenhand Degree group. I use Google Classroom to make an organizational stream for my Dairy Judging/Management CDE team. There are many ways you can use Google Classroom to help with educational endeavors.
