Google Classroom: Getting Started

For those of you who have used Google Docs with your students you know that it is a great tool for communication and collaboration.  Students can work on projects together, teachers can view documents in real time and comment and offer support, and everything saves automatically!  SO many great pluses, but getting students to share and "turn in" documents was a big head ache.

Enter Google Classroom!

Google Classroom is Google's new learner managements system (LMS) which makes handing out, turning in, and grading assignments a dream.

To learn more about Google Classroom and get started setting up your first class, check out this Blog post from Instructional Tech Talk: http://instructionaltechtalk.com/getting-started-google-classroom/
