Google Classroom - The Basics
Date: Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 Time: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Speaker: Charlotte VT Murakami (Kurume University)
Interested in getting started on Google Classroom? Good! You will be taking advantage of a free and very versatile platform that has enabled teachers all over the world to 'flip' learning and/or go almost paperless.
Please bring your laptop or tablet. You will also need a Gmail account or two! Note, university G-Suite email accounts have a strong firewall, preventing others from joining.
At this workshop, Charlotte VT Murakami (Kurume University) will show attendees how to do the following with just a few clicks:
- Create a class and add students
- Create announcements and assignments
- Track, grade, and return assignments (with or without feedback) to the students with the end goal of making sure students are really learning
- Integrate Google Classroom with the Chrome Extension Additio App which enables teachers to sync and calculate grades with relative ease.
After-meeting hangout: TBA
Our after-meeting hangouts are informal and not official Fukuoka JALT events, but are just a good chance to hang out with and get to know other teachers over a meal or a drink. We don't organize any set menus, no RSVPs, just whoever wants to come along can do so and order whatever they like. We'll choose a place each time that allows for your preferred food and/or drinks. Anyone is welcome, even if you don't come to the meeting.
