This is my second year in the CDIT program and I hope to graduate this coming May. I received my BS degree in Health K-12 from SUNY Brockport in 2012. I have worked in an alternative school for the past two years and a couple weeks ago was offered a job to teach high school health 9-12. Along with getting a new job, I just got married last Saturday! Therefore, I did not have much time for hobbies (besides shopping) this summer because I spent all of my time planning a wedding, taking summer grad classes, and now getting my classroom ready to roll for next week!
Google Classroom is a free web-based platform that was introduced for schools that work to simplify creating, distributing, and grading assignments. This blended platform saves time and paper! It allows teachers to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate to students, and grade assignments all while staying organized and eco-friendly. This feature was introduce two years ago and continues to grow in interest. Some fear the idea of change, especially with new technology, so for this wiki-page I plan to create simple step-by-step instructions on how this platform works. For this wiki-page I plan to provide students with the knowledge to successfully use and set up Google Classroom. After completing the course, educators will be able to create their own Google Classroom experience.
