1. 1.1 Teaching with Google Classroom: Hello, and welcome to teach with Google Classroom and Introduction to Teaching With Google Classroom with me, Chris Thomas and I am going to be your instructor for this course. And we're gonna be looking at some of the basics and how you can get set up with Google Classroom and using it in your classrooms yourselves. Now, the first thing I want to do before we dive into actually go in on Google Classroom ourselves is to look at a few things. And in the introduction, the first one is Teaching With Google Classroom. Now, at the moment we're in a strange environment where a lot of schools, especially here in the UK, teaching remotely. So in year groups, students, depending on whether they're Eiseley independent on whether they've got coronavirus, for example. And it has become more and more apparent that a remote learning solutions such as Google Classroom, which is why I'm gonna go through today, is needed in order for students to be able to carry on their education when they can't physically be in skill. Now, myself, I used Google classroom anyway in my own teaching and I'm gonna talk a little bit in a minute about my, my background and my experience. But for a lot of teachers, This will be a new system for you to be using. And it comes with quite steep learning curves, what I found in my own skill. And that's why I'm putting this course together. So hopefully guide you through how you can start implementing it yourself. Now, as I've said, there are benefits of teaching the Google clusters. Not just the fact that students can still learn at home, even if they can't be physically in school. But also for me, I've found it's way more interactive way of teaching. It removes a lot other requirement for paper-based assignments. But for me being a computer science teacher, it's a very interactive way of getting kids on the computers constantly using them rather than what I'd seen in the past, which was people doing some things on computers, but then printing them out, sticking it in the books and that sort of thing, which I think kind of the wrong way to go about teaching computer science. 2. 1.2 Course Introduction: The final thing in this introduction is just we're going to have a little, I'm going to tell you a little discussion about an introduction to the course and the course outline. So what it is we're going to be going through throughout this Google classroom course. Now the first thing we're gonna look at is a small Google Classroom introduction. So its impact on my teaching, how it's changed the way that I was my school I'm working out and experience I've had with it and its usefulness, especially during the Korean pandemic with coronavirus because we don't know how long it will last for. It could be that it lasts another six months. It could be that it lost another two to three years. So that's the first thing. Secondly, we're gonna look at the basics of how to learn how to create a Google Classroom. So how you can actually create your own classroom. It's some of the classes Athens in the look of adding and removing students and enroll in your own students, and then learn about some of the different features of your first Google Classroom. Secondly, we are going to look at assignments and how you can distribute assignments to your students, how to provide feedback, grade them, and a little bit on using rubrics on your assignments in order to save you a lot of time when it comes to market, we'll look at some of the quiz assignments and how you can use them to create self-marketing quizzes or more advanced quizzes. We're going to look at materials and questions again, how to distribute them, how to ask questions of your student on Google Classroom. And the key differences between materials and assignments. Cuz that's one of the things that a lot of the staff members, ulama currently, I've had some issues with. After that, we're going to look at the wider Google workspace and how it works within Google Classroom. So things like the class Drive folder and the use of Google Doc slide sheets and how that compares to use an office projects within Google Classroom and the difference. And then we're going to look a bit to do with Google, meet with Ingo clustering or it's something that our schools recently introduced and we have a Google meet at the start of every class blocker for the first time minutes from the last ten minutes, just so students can come and ask questions and have a bit of a personal interaction with their teacher. And then finally, I'm going to show you at the end is a student view of how good a clustering looks to a student. Now, this is the thing that, And there were a lot of people ask a vast of it from Google they want to put in the allows a teacher to click on and see what their Hoshin looks like from a student's view so they can make sure assignments have been put in, right? And that sort of stuff. It's something Google don't actually offer it in the moment. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to give you a little segment of the video so you can see what things look like because the students all see what your assignments look like. How to access and complete their assignments and how they can actually post comments ten in their work, see their grades, that sort of thing. And then finally, right at the end, we'll do a little bit on what Google classroom looks like on a tablet, on a mobile device, because it is quite different the way that kids can access it and do their work. We sent some kids off. He went off and some kids were accessing through the iPad or through the mobile phone. And there are certain things you have to do to be able to complete the work. So I'll show you that now before we jump into actually using GPU cluster, even setting our first Google Classroom up. What I wanted to do is just talk for a minute or two about how Google has really impacted my teaching. And obviously, my subject is computer science, so it's natural that my students would be using a computer anyway. However, I found that during my training year and shadow and quite a few different teachers, not many teachers actually used a remote learning solution. And they were more stuck in the way of using paper and book and print. They've done on the computer and putting it, sticking it into the book. There are very many reasons why they would do this. However, for me, I saw, and especially from my background as something that was quite, quite old, antiquated way of teaching. For me, caution you must be an amazing, you know, I can, I can open up and distribute assignments to kids in a couple of seconds. If not, I can grade work lot quicker using rubrics. I can have discussions with kids that sometimes they wouldn't want to have to me in the classroom face-to-face, they may post a comment and respond to. There are lots of things that have meant that my teaching has benefited greatly from it. Undoes actually allow me to become a better teacher and more rounded teacher who can, you know, differentiate slightly better because of the way you can set up different groups within the class. I can distribute work a lot quicker. I can grade work a lot quicker, and I can give students more opportunities to learn. So for me allows me to put in my class resources for kids to have a look if they're struggling with work. But I can also put in extra things so that if kids can finish work, they're not sticking their hand up and asking me for more. Instead, it's already there for them to go and access and see whether that be more actual works into complete or for example, a YouTube video or link to go read some more information online. It's just being something that I would use regardless anyway. So even if we weren't in a pandemic, I'd still be using it. And I've found that it's, it's made my teaching a lot more accessible for more students. Now, obviously, during what is a pandemic, its usefulness has become even more critical. Now, I find that there are two major things that the teachers are using it in a moment there, either using Google coffee, well, using Microsoft Teams, we decided here at the school to go with Google Classroom. So thin, I have had some experience with in my trading year. Now before that, I was a total Microsoft Teams user in business. However, when I use Google Classroom, I found that it was just, I found it was way more accessible for kids is something that we're used to. They used Google everything, Google every single day. And I trialled it with a class where I did half. I did what lesson on teams and molest non-classroom. And they just seem to get on with the clustering work a lot better than the last questions about technical issues or things not working. And now that is just my opinion. People will have different opinions. But for me, it's usefulness and especially during the pandemic has been, has been great and specially for this school. And it will allow you to carry on teaching if your home and your kids are in school or if your kids are at home and you're in school. We deliver live lessons to a Google meat assignments on Google Docs to be turned in onto Google Classroom. And we can grade them, submit their feedback, and give them the best possible chance of carrying on the studies while not in school. It may be that your school that you are at the moment may view the Microsoft Teams is the way forward. Is just that for rocks we found the students identify better with this platform. It's a lot easier for them to use. And it is something that we as a school or going to be carried on with regardless of, of coronavirus. Now, Google Classroom is being used in multiple different faculties in this, in this skill and is being used extremely well. 3. 2.1 Creating A Class : So the first thing we're gonna look at is actually learned how to create a Google Classroom for yourself. Now, if your school is not currently on Google for Education skill, if you search for Google education skill on Google, it will bring Google for educational. And here you can actually sign in or get your skill ready to be a Google education school. This might be something that your red, your skill has to implement for you. And it's really easy to get on the and sign your school or for aids free for the, the normal addition, there is also an enterprise and you can pay more for, and that gives you some more levels of control. We've actually, we've actually paid for that at this scale because an allows us to manage Chrome Books. You just bought 200 chrome books that it allows us to manage remotely really easily. So we bought the enterprise solution as well. However, you don't need to pay for anything. You can literally just sign up for here for free. And they, you will become a Google education school once you've done that, to get onto Google Classroom, and you would go to classroom dot google.com at the top, and it'll ask you to sign it. Now, once your IT admin has signed up for Google for Education, there isn't really easy solution for porting your email addresses. Or to allow all of your skills current email addresses to be able to sign in with using the rebound dress into google. So for example, my one is C dot, dot, dot, dot UK. And when you sign into that, you will, you will be presented with a blank screen. So mine has all of my classes on there at the moment. The i-th to Google classroom, you always will have known. And the first thing that we're going to look at is how we can actually create our first classroom. If you look into the top right, you will see it. And if you hover over, you'll say create or join a class. If you'd click on that and click on Create, you'll get given this box. So for the purposes of this course, I'm going to call it test class section. I always put in the subject and my name so that it becomes a little bit easier to see on this part of the class here. Subject you can put in if you want, but they are usually the ones that Google is putting for you and then the room number. And then you can click Create. Now sometimes it takes couple of seconds. And as a setting up your classroom for you. 4. 2.2 Changing Class Settings: When it is done, I've left her a couple of seconds comeback and it's now sets up. You will get a page that looks like this. So you've got your class title. Obviously that little field I told you to write it under section. You have something called the class code and meet link, which we'll get into later on. But this is what your basic Google classroom looks like. Now, the first thing that I want to show you is a couple of things within the settings that you might want to add it. So what I usually do when I first had taught my Google Classroom is I go to the Settings cog in the top right here, click on it, and it brings all of my Class Details, General Settings, grade and up. Now, this is the information that you've already put in, which is fine. If you come down to General here, there are a couple of different things I'm going to run through. Firstly, you have an invite link. So this is if you wanted to email out to your students and they could click on it and it would allow them to join their class. Secondly, I've a class code. This is the unique class code that is for your class only. You can click on display class code here if you wanted to show your students it. And then underneath we've got some options about the stream. Now, the stream is what is on the homepage of your Google Classroom here now I refer to the stream is kinda like a Facebook feed. It's just a feed of anything that gets posted into classroom. So if you post any assignments, if you post any quizzes, if you post a YouTube videos or links, you can post them in a different tab, but they will show up in your fee in your stream. Now I always think that the stream can be quite confusing for students when they command, you see all of their assignments and they can become a little bit confused as to where they're supposed to go. So we'll talk about some stream etiquette later on in the course. But why would selecting your settings is students can post and comment. I would turn up for, for now to only teachers can post or comment. Now what that does is it means that students can't reply to things that you've put on, on the actual classroom themselves. What you'll find is usually when introducing something like this. And kids get a little bit giddy with it and they may start posting hello or hi or talking to their friends on it. This set, this set in being turned on, just just cabs up. Now it might be that after a couple of weeks, you trust your class a little bit more and you might turn it on and it's great because it's really good for collaboration. You know, you could post something in, a student, could post back, say, here's what I think and here's some more information about it or here's something I found on lines, but we couldn't really got as a tool for that. However, at first I always put only teachers can post or comment. Now, classwork on the stream, Iowa's show condense Notifications. It's small notifications if you post something and classwork, it will also go into your stream. And you can check whether you want to show deleted items. I don't put that on because it just makes it even more confusing. And then here there's guardian summaries, which I'll go through in a minute when we're talking a little bit more about some other settings late around, you have there called a meat link. That is if you want to generate a class specific Google Meets links so that when you have an video calls like we did, then there is a specific meet linked to all your students go to every single time. It never changes, just helps with students because they don't forget what the meat, what the link is for them to be able to access the video call with their street, with that teacher. Underneath, you've got some great options which are not really important at the moment, but I will go through them later on when we're talking about quizzes assignments, and if your general introduction to the Class Settings. Now one thing I also like to change is the theme. So at the moment, this is a computer science class, doesn't really look like one. If I go to select theme, Google has a lot of pre and pre-installed headers for you. You can get to English and history, maths and science, arts, sports and other. You can also upload your own picture if you want. There is somewhere online you can find the dimensions for what it is. It changed slightly recently. So a lot of the ones that I did use were out of proportion, so I've had to change that. However, I just usually go with a general one. 5. 2.3 Enrolling Students: So now my test class has been setup. I've changed the settings, I need to change this specific class. And I've selected a theme now. Well, some people do is they have these curriculum roadmaps that we set as our theme. But as I've mentioned, it can be difficult to get the dimensions right. But if you look online thing, Google Book data done recently. So you can look and create your own dimensions in your own graphic design software. The first thing you want day probably is invite some of your own students. Now before we look at that, I'm going to show you the People tab on here. So you'll have four tabs will look at the classwork and the grades. One in a little bit. Well, the first one I will show you is people access where we can add students. Now, there are a couple of different ways you can invite students to Google classroom. You can asses in the settings, Choose a invite link, and if you copy it up, you can copy it and you can email out students. Now we don't have class at list specific email addresses, but if your school does or if your institution does, and that's great because what you could do is you can copy the link, post it, and send it just other one e-mail address that will send it to all of your students. We don't have that. So what we do instead is if you go back to stream, you will see here that you have a class code. And if I click on law, I can display it. Now, you're students, all you'll need to do is go to classroom dot google.com, login with their own school email address, assuming that they have won. And when they click on the plus in the top right, they can click on join a class and they only to import a code to join. That is the code on the screen that you would get into. Inputs are mine will be pj 66 EQ. You, once they've done that, they will join as a student in your classroom. And what you'll find is on the People tab, they will destination will display. However, your school has the naming convention setup. So for row sets and see the year they leave. So for Year seven it will be C 25, surname first, initial at the school email address, blah, blah, blah. The other thing you can do is you can invite from here. So if you click on invite, you can type the student's name, email address it. So C2H5, for example, same thing here. And you can just type in all email addresses if you want to. However, I find that the easiest way is to literally just go back to your stream and display your class code and wireless students are there in your class. You can check to make sure that they have joined your classroom. Now if you have any one-offs Yuan tin or if you are delivering straight remotely and you're not going to have them in class. You can't invite them all or you can obviously invite them individually, but we just find it can take a little bit of time. And it's the most, the quickest, most efficient solution is to add the Getting to add themselves. The other tab within people is a teacher's tap. Now this is if you have multiple teachers who teach the same class, or if you do what we do, we have the class teacher, the head of faculty, and the deputy head teacher who's in charge of teaching and learning. They are part of every class. So I have three teachers in every single one of my class, diestrus. They can check to see that work's been set properly. It removes the need for physical books when we're doing book clocks, they can just literally log on to the cluster. You see the kids to do it and make sure that they are work into the best of their ability. 6. 2.4 Overview of Stream, Classwork, People, Grades: The last thing to go through really is just to talk you through each of these tabs. So obviously first doc, you have stream, which is your home page of your classroom. It's where you have a little feed with your class. You can communicate with them. You can create post, you can respond to students if you have student posts turned on and you have any upcoming work that you may have set down the left-hand side. This is just the basic homepage at Google Classroom. I don't really spend too much time in here. As I said, stream can be quite, can become quite cluttered and students, especially in the lower year groups of 789, can become quite confused what they're supposed to be doing. So I usually tell them always to go to this next tab here, which is classwork. Now, classwork will go through this in the next topic, but this is where you would set and assign all of your work for students. It's where I always send students to see what they should be doing, that lesson. And it's where you can use topics to organize things, create your assignments and questions, find any work that you want to grade. You can look at your own class-specific Google Calendar in cluster i folder, which we'll look at later on as well. And, and you can also ask questions and post materials. And here this is where I do the main bulk of my work on Google clustering and where I think you should as well if you're going to be using this in your day-to-day teaching. They also have the pupil at the People tab, which has your teachers and students said, You can add students in manually yourself are teaching manually yourself. And when students appear in here, you'll get a big list of all the students that have joined or you have invited to your class. The last one is grades. Now this'll be where if when you set assignments and we'd look at assignments later on, this will populate a grading table for you here. So I'll have all of the students names it, and it will show you the grades for the specific assignments you've sat. Now these could be assignments that you've sat just as a normal, a normal worksheet and the lesson is not like a test or if it's got a particular mark for it. But it will also be your major, you end of unit midterm tests that we set. So for example, when I was putting my data recently, I clicked on my classroom, I clicked on grades and got all of my students names down the left-hand side. And I had all of the marks that they don't for every single worksheet. But right at the end I had my end of unit assessment grades here. Could just import them onto Sims themselves to get their data up. There, the four main tabs that you'll use. Obviously you've got your settings Cognos, well, the change in settings within your, your clustering. And you've got this little hamburger menu appear, which just takes you either back to your class settings, the patio classless, sorry, or you can see your class list here on the left. Now, if you click on classes, it will just take you back to your home screen here. The last thing that I quickly want to show you is in this main menu, you have a Settings tab at the bottom. This is a bit more Google Classroom hole specific, not just, not just individual classes for the whole Google Classroom. And what you can see here is your notification preferences. So you can choose to receive email notifications or not. If you click on, you can then choose what you want to receive. So if you don't wanna receive anything to do with comment, you can turn all your comment notifications off. If you don't want to be told about late submissions of work or resubmission or invitations to co-teach is very, very granular. You can choose what you want to get information from, what you don't want to get information from. A last thing that I find really useful. And I had a faculty and deputy head find useful is this class notifications. So you can turn notifications offer specific classes. So let's say you're just in a class as I had a faculty or as a head of department, just to make sure that stuff being set in there, you could turn off the individual notifications for that class because you will be inundated with emails daily with work being completed, things being submitted, buildings being submitted Lake. It just becomes a little bit easier for you to manage these toggles. Other than that, I think I've shown you bake them basics of your Google Classroom Home screen, how to create a Google Classroom, and how to edit the class once you're inside it. Next topic, we'll be looking at how to set up assignments. They can actually get into the meat of actually setting different assignments for your students, different types of assignments and the kind of intricacies that go along with that. 7. 3.1 Setting Assignments: So welcome back to our test class that we created in the last topic looking at how to create our first Google Classroom. The majority of our time for this next topic is going to be, for the next few topics is going to be spent in the classwork tab here, this is where you can set your assignments, look at student work grade at that sort of thing. The first thing I'm going to show you is a little bit of an introduction to this page and what are the different things that you can do on this page? If you go on, look at this blue button here, create, you'll see you get a load of different options for what you can do. You can either set an assignment, which is what we're going to look at a niche topic. There's quizzes, assignments, which we'll look at next, Materials and questions we'll look up after that. And then a couple of other ones which I'll explain to you in a second. The first one I want to show you quickly as topic now, this is just a personal thing, but I like to keep my topics in quite a court order. It helps kids to differentiate between what they need to be doing and what they don't need to be doing. The first thing I'll always put in is a topic called finished assignments. Now want you done something? I would recommend that you drop that particular assignment into this topic, just that kids can see that it is dawn, I used to put a little Finnish sign. And then either m and that is just a topic, or you can group assignments on the topics. So the first one I've used is obviously finished assignments. But then let's say my first topic is cyber security. And I'll put a little icon in a laptop and add it. And this is my first topic where I'm gonna start drop in bits of working for students. Like I said, the reason I have this topic here is just because that is where I'm going to drop any of my finished assignments and so kids don't get confused with it. Well, this unit, what we're going to be looking at first is actually how we can create assignments, how we can distribute them, and how we can provide feedback, assign grades and the end look at rubrics and how they help with assignments. So if I go to create here and click on assignment, I get a new tab that opens up to me quite a lot of different options on. The first one is here, the title for it. The second is any instructions might want to give your students. Now I don't do this usually in class because I'm there to deliver the instructions, but when it's a remote lesson, and I'll show you some examples later on when we look at the student view, I will put instructions into that kids, have all of the information available to them on the right you have who this assignment is for, and this is where you can submit one assignment to multiple classes. So for example here all are yes evans, This girl due to same unit at the same time. So I can create one assignment for the week, drop it into all the seven classes. However, for this, I'm just gonna put it into the test class. It's going to all students. Now, if you had students who have joined your class, you can group them and send separate assignments out separate students. The benefit of this is that it allows you to differentiate quite, quite well in the student doesn't really know that they're getting a different type of we're actually getting one that has a little bit of help with them or one that's personalized to them. They're just getting what they think is the assignment rather than the old days where you would give someone, you'll give the class worksheet and then you would go and get the other worksheets for the kids who may be needed some scaffolded. This is a bit more of a discrete, personalized way to do it. And you can do that through this all students. But here you can give it a point value if you want or on grade it. Now, I'm going to put this as ungraded because this is just a worksheet that my students can we do in, in the lesson? I don't particularly need to grade it like I would a exam question or a quiz. I can set a due date if I want to. So we'll set it for next week at a time, which is optional. And then you can put it into the correct topics of cybersecurity, will look at rubrics at the end. But you can also get Google to check plagiarism. And this lets you check if kids are just copying stuff from Google and putting it on the Google docs really good for exam questions, quite good for such double Tell. The people aren't just copying stuff directly from Google. And so back over to this side. If we wanted to add in a document, we can click on add. And you've got Google Drive link, a link file or YouTube. Now, this is where it becomes important to discuss the differences between Google classroom at Google Suite, sorry, Google workspace and things like PowerPoint and office. And Google classroom works better if your school uses Google Suite of education apps. So things like docs, slides and sheets, that sort of thing. The reason being is that kids can just get on edit live and submit them. Whereas if it's a Microsoft products, they have to convert it first and then attach it to the assignment. And we'll show you what that looks like for a student if you like to run. But just for the benefit of DES, I'm going to add in some different Google Drive that I've already got. So if I go to my drive, I can double click on Kant's field. I can go to my computing curriculum goes Key Stage three. Yes. Seven, I've got basics and he safety. And in here I've got all my lessons for that unit. If I go to lesson two, social network and I can click on the Power Point that I use, the Google slides that I use for that. Now, you've got an option here for three different things. And these are very important for you to pay attention to because these can't be edited so easily if you needed to go back in and edit the assignment. First things first, I'm going to give it the title of social network. Please look at the slides and answer the questions on the Google Doc. Under here, I've added in the slide show for them. So if I click on this, I can give you a quick look at what this slideshow has. It's got the starter answer the questions, and then they've got tasks that they need to complete for this lesson. Now, I want to set that as students can view the file. That means that when students log on and look at this assignment, they can just view the slides. They can't edit it, they can copy it, they can't manipulated, they can just view it themselves. However. There are two other options. There are students can edit and there are make copy for each student. Students can edit would mean that once this goes out, every single student who views it can edit that file. Now this isn't good when I'm delivering lessons and I'm using my own PowerPoints, however, is good for group work because it allows students to go off into different groups and all work on the same document at the same time. So you could have kids at home. However, you've assigned to a group where they all have to create a Google slide document. And they can all work collaboratively even though they're not in the same room. So that's where students can edit, can be a really good option. The last option is make copy enough for me. I always say that's like going around the class and handed out a worksheet to each individual student. When they see this assignment and click on it, it will make a copy of that for them, that is their own personal copy. And this is what I use when I'm doing worksheets in Google Classroom. However, for this I'm going to have it as view. And on the next one I'm going to add in Google Drive, I'm gonna find the Word document that I use that goes with this. So go to conceal computed Key Stage 37 basics and he safety. And I go to social networking. I've already created a Google doc here, which is the Lesson Two worksheet. If I click on that, I can insert it. And I'll show you what this looks like as well. They have some statements they have to highlight in green. And then they have a little table they need to fill in underneath as part of this lesson. So why would said this one is, as, is, make a copy for each student. And what that would do is as soon as they load this assignment top. And again, when we, when I talk about this later on in student view, you'll be able to see what this looks like. They will be able to actually work on this document themselves as their own version. If I just had a is view, there would only be able to view it. They won't be able to actually import it in on it. So it's imperative that you put things you want individual students to have a copy of as make a copy for each student. The reason I say it's imperative is because if you wanted to go and edit this assignment, you would not be able to edit this bit. You'd have to reset the whole assignment once it's made a copy for your student is made a copy as soon as you have seen that the assignment there's no changing it. So make sure you get these bits right before you put your own work. And of course I could obviously added or the file. So if I wanted to add a file from my computer, I could do that. And I could add in YouTube links for 1-2. It lets you search YouTube directly. Cybersecurity, a YouTube video in which I'll do now just to show you how that works. And I could also, if I wanted to add a link to a website. If you've not created these already like I have already done, you can also create files and put them into voltage. Create my Google Doc now for people to answer, I could go to Create and it will open a brand new google.png. And if I click on it, I can edit it so you could create on the fly light up. However, I find that once you've got your things into Google Drive, you can automate it a lot easier. So I'm just going to remove that. Once I'm happy with all my settings, I've put my title and I've put my instructions, I've added all the files, I need it and make sure that this settings correct. Put it to the right class, all students, It's ungraded. The data I want to end on the topic. I can now go to either assign or I can schedule it or save the draft. Scheduling works really well. On the weekend, on a Sunday, I schedule my lessons for the week because it takes me 1015 minutes and then they're all just ready. And on Google Classroom, I don't have to worry. It started a class about setting them up or assign and things just old OH, forming. However, for this one I'm just going to assign. Take a few seconds and then you'll be taken back to your classwork tab. And you can, and you will see your assignment under the correct topics social network in and you can click on, see what it looks like, view assignment. Now what this does is it will tell you how many is being assigned and how many will have been turned back. And we'll talk about turning back in later on. We look at the student view. Well, I can see the oversight, but no one in this class at the moment, so it's not signed at 21 and nobody's tend it back. But I could if I had a class of 30 children, I could show you. It will tell you how many being assigned to the, to those students. If I go back to my classwork and just click over here, you can see an overview. So I've got an introduction to Vici video. I've got the Google slides I can view and I've got the worksheet that I can complete. And that is the basics of how you can create your own assignment. How you can set the right setting for view, Edit, and Copy for each students. And how you can create an ad in your own files. And in the next clip, I'm gonna be showing you how you can provide feedback on assignments, grade them, and return them, and use rubrics to help you save time. 8. 3.2 Providing Feedback & Grading: Welcome back. Now, for this part of the course, I've actually jumped out of our test class and moved into one of the classes I actually work with at the moment in my job. Now, obviously there's some things will be able to fully show you because it's safeguarded and the kind of story you sit and kids information, however, for me to show you how to provide feedback, how to grade assignments, how to return them. I figured it was best for me to show you on some things I've actually worked on. So as you can see from the last part of the course where I told I mentioned having a finished assignments tab. It works really well because obviously when silicon don't say the end of unit assessment, which is in here, I can literally click and drag it into finished assignments and then the students and know that these are the things that are already don't know. And then I'll quickly look at this task sheet. And this was a assignment I, Scientists and care system students. When I was off, I got to self isolate for nine days. So I had to make sure that all of these students had were to complete even though I was, wasn't here. As I mentioned in the last one. And you can see that it was assigned to 2423 of ten by k and one student wasn't N, So he didn't return it. Once you that when I sorry, when I submit this assignment, I add a video for them to watch and detached youth into complete. I put some instructions and follow them a due date, obviously the title, all things that we talked about in the last video. And when I saw these, this is what happened when they turned it back in. So I can see that all the students here have turned in the work and here is little thumbnail to show our students work with light. So I'm going to pick one and show you what it will look like for me to actually provide some feedback on this on this piece of work. So in this piece of work, they were asked which passwords they thought were gone. They were told to highlight them and provide some information and why underneath. And I can see the google.png worked on. And I can see a lot of different information here because obviously this is the teacher of u. I can click on this and see the list of all the students underneath. And I can move between students. So if I click on the arrow button, didn't move me between different students. And I can also see the files that have been attached to the students. Obviously, this lesson three touchy was what I said to them. So that is what has been attached back for me. I can add private comments since. And this is where I would give feedback to this student, in particular on the hole. So it might be really great piece of work to improve your chord. And sure, your text is formatted correctly and that correctly. Because I can see some of this text here is has been put in the middle. And I could put our post that to that student. And you have an option here for something called a comment bunk. And this is where you can save things that you're going to use over and over. So for example, SP for spelling, and then you can just copy and paste it in rather than constantly type in it. Or any other sort of bounce of phrases that you're going to be using when you're providing feedback to your students. If I go back to files, I can also provide feedback on very specific things within this document and this works on every single Google products. So dark slide sheets and I'll show you a slide, for example, after this. And for example, this, this password here is obviously not not a secure password. It's quality 1-2-3, 4-5-6. However, this student has said that he thinks it's an appropriate password is as capital as a Nimbus. And if I want to comment on this specific part of the document, I can go to the top here, findable, and this has a comment. If I highlight this specific one here, so highlight 256 and the app Comment button, it pops up on the right. If I click on the icon and a very specific comment to that student and say, taking a look at this, do you think it has all of the requirements of a strong password? And can you remember the three things we talked about? And I can quick comment and that will attach itself to that part of the Word documents. When the student gets it back, they will see bits highlighted. And when they click on them, it will show them the comment and what the student can then do. They can reply back to you if they need clarification or they can reply back to you to say don't. And when the comment, when you, when the student has made the changes or responded to the feedback, you can click on this button and it will mark as is solved. And you can still get access to this within your comments. But it just allows you to, allows you to see what is being done on what hasn't been done. So, for example, let's go to this one. This is right. It says to kill password. Great outset. This includes Symbols and then only this comment. And a quick comment on this bit here. So secret NoSQL passwords password is not stable as there are no known business too generic and easy to guess and might want to comment on this specific given great answer. And you can start to see how you can have a Google Doc that your students submitted and you can go through and provide comments and feedback on the assignments. Now, if this assignment was graded, you would have a grade at the top here that you can give your students. So let's say this was our 20. You can give out 20. And then you would click return like this. And it will return the document back to your students. And they can see the word saved, see the comments that you've given them. I would then, when I mock and move on to the next student by clicking on this. And I can again go through highlight and comment on things given them feedback on their assignment. And if these things were graded, you would get a grade in the column here. In fact, let me show you one that has been grade is that you can see a little bit better. Let me find my year a class. So they did a PowerPoint that they had to work on throughout the unit and then submit back to me. If I go to this here, I can see I've had 27 returned because I assigned it to them. They've turned into me. I provided feedback and returned it to the as you can see, I get all of my student and thumbnails. Ok. I got all the student names down the left-hand side and I can see that for some reason it's not showing me on this ones that we find it a little oh, that we got just took some time. I can see all of the different slides that are being submitted back to me via the students. So if I click on the student here, I can see that I've given them 27 out of 30 based on a rubric, which I'll go through in a minute. And in a minute, I didn't make any specific comments on this because as you'll see in the next topic when we look at rubrics, they provide the comments for you. So kids can go on, see what comment has been given to them and how they can improve this. Again, if I wanted to, I could click, I could go on this and I could highlight it and produce a common final things to show you about. Providing feedback, grading your assignments and returning them is actually being able to return the assignment back to the student. What that actually does is it gives them a notification. It says that your teacher has low to your work and it's returned it to you. Have a look basically. So why can do is once I've gone through all my students and I've, I've provided feedback or give them schools based on a rubric. I can then actually press the return button here. So it's blanked out for me as I've already done it, you can either return individually or you can drop down this arrow and it will say return multiple submissions. And that's just what I usually do is I'll mock a whole-class. I'll just click that dropdown and return all of them at the same time. What that does is it allows the students to see what you've commented and said to them, and allows them to actually do any revisions to the work and feed it, send it back to the teacher so you can look at it again. So it's really good for continuous assessment. 9. 3.3 Using Rubrics: Included in this course, when I was writing it was the use of rubrics within Google classroom teachers that I've spoken to who use Google Classroom, not many of them actually used this feature. For me, it's drastically changed. My market has made it a lot quicker, it's made a lot more effective. And to the point, I'm gonna quickly show you how you can set up rubrics on assignments now what they actually are. So for example, this social network and assignment that I've put in for our test class. If I go into edit this assignment. So view instructions and then edit and back to this page that we saw in a previous topic. Now obviously, as I've said earlier, you cannot edit this, especially the ones that student will get a copy, which is why I always said in the previous, previous topic that is really important to get these assignments right as you're posting them, however, you can add in a rubric and you can add n at a later date. Now, you can either create, reuse or import from Sheets. I mainly use create and reuse. We're gonna create one today. And what this does is it adds in criteria that let you evaluate student work and includes descriptions on it. And when the student gets an assignment, they will get a copy of the rubric as well. So for example, if my rubric out of 30, for example, they will get an, a market of 30 with descriptions and what they've done well. So for example, I'm going to say one is going to be sparks of spelling punctuation and grammar. At least criteria scores, your spelling punctuation. And why can do here now is I can give different levels. So my max level is going to be ten millennia before that, maybe 7530. Now I can give each of these criteria is within, within this bug criteria, different level titles and descriptions. So for example here, I could say outstanding. And a description of all of your spelling, all of us phi and a is outstanding. You know, areas. I could do a goat and I go pull your bug. Goes with only a few errors. I quote pull an acceptable haha, I'm going to have below target and I get Huff fail and I can write out all the different descriptions. Will haha, so for example, you'll spot is acceptable. However, it needs improvement. Science grades would have you'll spot is below. Target is on needs. Improvement to access rate. And then obviously you could have a failed description. Haha. Now, that's one criteria within this assignment I'm assessing, but I'm also going to assess, for example, content. So based criteria. That measures how well do you have. And again, graph 107530. These can be of course, wherever you want. They don't have to be 107530. We'll just have to be a points value because you'll notice that the top here that overall rubric has added the 210 criteria is automate 20. So here again, I could do the same thing about standard. You don't have to have a Wi-Fi's if you fill these out. Now, when you go into monitor students where it becomes a lot quicker to just the work at the scores and then it gives descriptions and what they've done really well. Now what we're gonna do is in a minute, if I click Save, you'll notice that on this assignment there is a rubric now that has to Criteria 20 points and your students can view this as well. So I always say at the start the assignments, look at the rubric because on there it tells you what you need in order to access higher grain boundaries. And this is what it looks like to the students. They can come on and say, Right, well, I know unmeasured on spelling, punctuation grammar out of ten, I know my contents are obtained. I know whatever the criteria that you have set is on there for them to say it's transpired. They can have a look at what it is they need to do to access the top Mark is really useful for them. Let's just quickly show you what it looks like when you're going through marking a student's piece of work and looking at how the rubrics work in that respect. As you can see here, I've got a student's piece of work, OK? And on the right, it shows me the rubric for this assignment. So as I come in to look at this person's work, I can scroll through and I can, I can say, you know what, this person is, spelling, punctuation and grammar is perfect. Yes, you some dots instead of instead of bullet points, but that should be the bottom mu2, which often it's really gone through. I'm going to give a ten, so I'll click on the tab, layout and design. I think it's quite good, really good for the student and for this level could maybe better though. So I'd give a seven out of ten. Maybe. Time dependent depends on what your view as and then obviously content she's done pretty well with should not access the top top grade boundary. So she's on a seven. I've clicked to seven. And then obviously you can look on here and see what is their guy and then this becomes their own personalized feedback. So it said obviously your knowledge of cybersecurity is great and you've included in most of the relevant information on the Google Slides. Your layout and design is excellent and matches the target audience while using a range of Google slides available features. And then your spelling punctuation grammar is exceptional with no errors. And that becomes what they see when they get their grade buck. They see 27, our 30, but they also see the breakdown with the feedback of what they've done really well. And I use these now on all of my portfolio based work. So if they do a unit where they're creating a portfolio, creating a presentation or creating something creative, that I will use a rubric so they can see exactly what they've done, exactly what they've got and exactly what they are. Different criteria is for them being marked on the actual unit. So we had a really great way, I think of providing really good feedback and really making your using your time better. Because I can go through and check this and gives us some scores and it takes me less than a minute. 10. 4.1 Quizzes: I'll come back in this topic. We will look at quiz assignments specifically and how we can use them in Google Classroom. Look at some of the advanced quiz ends we can implement. And look specifically at self mark and quizzes because these are what are really going to help you save time and also implement and more robust system across your school. So if I look at create, I'm back in my test class here, in my classwork tab, and we're going to create, you can see there is a separate assignment here. There is an assignment at the top and there is a quiz assignment blow. If I click this, it will create me a Google form and a quiz assignment. Now similar to our other assignment, you want to give it a title. I'm going to call it social networking tax. So instruction, quiz. And then I'm going to make this one out of ten. So I'm gonna get ten points. It's got a due date next week. And it's under the topic cyber security. Now, I've chosen, once it goes to the whole class, let's go into the test class. All students, and I will do now is this is my blank quiz that Google has created for me. And an attached to the assignment. If I want to add it there, I can click on the button. And it will bring the formal forming. Now, I'm gonna give this a quick title or social networking one. Put it in here as well. And what I'm gonna do is if you want to give a form scription, you can't. So please complete the quiz below. Now the first thing I do whenever I'm in a Google form like this, as I will go to the settings cock up here just to make sure that I've got the correct settings on for my, for my particular forms. Now, there are a couple of things in general and implementation and in quizzes that you'll want to do. These are the different options you can have now we have a few we ever require sign in. And that just means that it restricts it to my our school. So only our students, they can only access this queries using their school email. Also, those forces when we're looking at reports, it shows what that individual person's got cuz google forms can be used for anonymous poles and quizzes and forms as well. But we don't want that. We want to know exactly what a certain person has got. So this is an important button to take. Now, it says my school here, but obviously when your skill signs up, they will have the name there as well. And I also usually limit them to one response and I don't let them edit after it and I don't let them see the summary charts, George Jack, because I wanted to see the the quiz before I send it back to the general settings that I put, May 80 be different for you, but they're all collect email addresses will just, if you're not using it through schools or you're using it personally, if you clicked on that little menu will pop up on the quiz that asks them to put their email address in for them. So we don't need to do that because our schools and education school, and it pre-populates with the school email anyway. The next one is presentation, and these are just some things that you might want to implement. I usually have shuffled question order on so that even if students sat next to each other, they don't have the same question at the same time, stops any form of cheating that may occur only copying. I don't usually have progress bar around, but if you want to so you can see how close the finishing you can put that on. And then you can have a confirmation message at the end if you want. The standard one is just that your response is being recorded. Now usually just leave it at that. The final tab is where you want to make sure you've got this check. So make this a quiz. What that allows you to do is assign values to the question and also allows it to self mark and auto grade for you. There are a couple of things here. If you've got Chrome books, you can have locked mode, which means that they cannot open up any other applications while they're doing the quiz. And they can open up Google the kind of open up any of the sort of apps they may have on the Chromebook. And then you've got these last few options here. So release grades. This is just to let you know how the program will release the grade. It can lead to a meat. You can release it immediately after each submission. So soon as the child, students aren't complete the quiz, they will get their grade straight away, or you can have it later after manual review. And what that does is it sends you to you, you can check through and then you can release the grades back to the students once you're done, look in. You can also have a look at what students are respondents can see so they can see missed questions, they can see correct answers, and they can see point values. Once you've looked at that, you can click save and that makes the edits to your quasars. You can see here this form is automatically collecting email addresses for concealed uses. That's fine. And if I want to change the theme really quickly, I can customize the theme or top, you can have a header image, you can have a background color. You can have different colors for the whole theme and you can change the font style if you want. So you can have a playful font or for, or decorative items. You just stick with the basic one. Now once you're back in your cuisine, you've changed your settings, change your theme, you can start to put in some questions. Now Google that you offer multiple different question types. You can have short answers, paragraphs, multiple choice checkboxes, drop-down, file upload, linear scales, multiple choice grids, checkbox grids, date times, all that sort of stuff. I usually use multiple choice or textboxes because that is where I'll check boxes because that's what allows the Google form to self mark. You can also add in things like titles and descriptions if you want to. There's loads of different things. You can add it into the fall. I'm going to go with the simple multiple choice checkbox. So which of these is a current? Just to show you how it works? And Google, apple windows. So there's my multiple choice question. I've put in a question at the top. I can add in a picture if I want to, I can upload the picture or find it from Google Image search. So let's find one social network in that, which kind of gives away the answer. But just for this, we will show it, will use it. Now I've got my image in as well. So which is according social network, Twitter, Google, Apple, Windows. You can put in as many options as you want. It didn't have to just before. It can be two, it can be ten. It's up to you. And what you have to do once you've done this is Click on iOS, click on required. Now that means that the student has to answer the question to finish the crazy can't leave any required questions answered. I used to have all of my questions is required because I want them to answer if they don't want to skip any questions. So I always. Toggle that required a toggle on. And then you go to something called N60. And what this does is it lets you select for this question, how many points you want to give them, so won't. And they let you choose the right onsets of Twitter. And you can also add answer feedback KS. So if you have a correct answer, you can put welder Twitter network around. And you can have incorrect answers as again, maybe AIG, the attached video, and then you can add in a video if you want to. So for example, go to YouTube and social networking. Explain what video you want. So let's put that in just as an example. Try again and maybe look at the attached video save. So now you've got some answer feedback for correct answers and answer feedback for incorrect answers. You've chosen the right one, and it is given a total points value of one. Up here, you can see the total point score is changed to one now. And you can get back on once you click dawn with add anymore questions. So let's go down. Let's say you want to add in a question pull up. And this time we'll do check box is because I want to do multiple choice. So which the below. So we'll use the same omega, will go Facebook, Google, Apple, Snapchat, windows to talk. Now I've got loads ones I can choose. Again, check that I've got to put them all in. Go to answer Kate. Give them Well, there's Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat to tech talks gives a four-point and choose to select one, but the right ones. I'm not gonna add any answer feedback for this one. Don't talk about it in my second quiz, quiz question, you can see I've got four points here and 1 for the one or both. Both required. Now I can preview appeared seal my quizzical look like to a students and this is what it will currently looks like. And you can have a go at the questions. You can put in whatever you want and test that it works and submit it as a preview so you can see what we're doing. And what I'm going to show you in a minute, I'm going to switch over to a quiz that I've already don't for one of my classes and show you the extent to which I used this and also some of the information that you can see. Once someone has submitted a quiz back to you. Before I show you that though, what I'm gonna do is once you've done this quiz here, and you're happy with it, and you've gone through all your settings. You would click the X button. And although this has blank quiz, is actually the quiz that you just worked on, it just takes Google some time to change the title over for some reason. And I would also take on great importance with letters as import the grades for the assignment into your grade book on classrooms. If I assign this, you will see that it moves to my assignments. And when I click on it the gray that the test actually changes its name to social networking quiz. Well, and again, no one has been assigned to and no one's tend to N because there's no one in our, in our actual classroom yet. 11. 4.2 Quiz Grades & Advanced Settings: So now I'm just showing you a end of unit assessment that I use with my students. You can see I've got 79 responses. This appears once you've submitted your question to someone and they've actually answered some of the questions and sent it back. This homes are 28 points. All just multiple choice questions. I'd done the answer keys for made them required. And what happens when this gets some back as you will, you will go back into the quiz. You will get this responses section up here. And up here you will get a summary of this is everyone in the array who's taken this quiz. Because I just put all the array open to the one assessment summary of what they're doing. They don't. You can see a based by question. So for example, the first question and 54 responses, you can see if 54 people got it right and 25 got it wrong, so not too bad. Next one, you can have a look 73, you got it right on the five, got it wrong. You can really drill down into the data and you can also look on an individual basis. So if I click on this, I can scroll for everyone who's taken it and have a look at what their individual schools are. Now there's close, we'll also have been imported into the grade book. And if you want to go on just based on the quiz, you can, you can actually look at it via the actual quiz assignment itself. You can also export this to g, g sheets. So we click on next and create a new spreadsheet. And it will create it for you and link to it. And in here you've got all your information on a Google sheet. You've got people's email addresses, their scores, and then they're individ their answers for individual questions. So we can be quite big and it can be quite difficult to actually navigate around, but it is quite good if you just wanna get the email address is in this cause it works really well for that. What I will show you quickly as well as when you go back to the classroom. And this is with the great, you can see that that end of unit assessment, the grades had been imported into the column here. And I can see everyone's great. I've only done the quiz in this class. Now, what might happen is because you have, I will have turned on release after manual review, which is releasing the great back to students. You'd have to click on this button here so you'd go back into your assignments. So end of unit assessment, go to student work. I've got all of my students here. You've been sent the quiz. I would import the Great. What that will do is it will take the grades from the quiz and the imports them into this column here so you can see what they've got and also important, important into the grade book. I can also then click on this and click return and it will return the quiz back to the students. They can see what grade they've got. And usually do this right at the end of the lesson. They can have a little look for the end of the lesson, then I can send them on the way. And you can then copy all these grades, download them as CSVs is loads of different things you can do within a quiz, but they are nice. The main way that I use quizzes, quizzes for self-marketing and vena assessments, low-stakes tested, and some of the basic features that I've shown you on, on a quiz. I will do a video that probably won't be in this course that goes into some of the more advanced and grading systems that you can use, an advanced questions that you can use on Google classroom. But just for this, but the basics of how you actually set or not set it, set it with the kids and then get their grades back. That video should cover what you need for that. 12. 5.1 Questions & Materials: Quickly just touch on a few of the things that you can put into classwork on Google Classroom, and they are materials and questions mainly now there is a quite a big difference. The reason I've gone into in depth on assignments and quizzes assignments, and because they are things that are graded, you could provide feedback on. You can do rubrics where you can really view a score that the student is giving you. And materials and questions is slightly different. Now, in class work, I can click Create, and I can see that I've gone through assignments, quizzes, assignments, but I've also got questions and materials. If I click on the question, these are really good for single use. Surveys, topics, polls, or if you only get just some, just some feedback from your class. Now you could say, for example, on this one. And how long are we spending on homework? And you could put option one and less than 30 minutes, more than one hour, two hours, three hours. And you can know points because just to question, no Jue De We'll put in a topic. And I can then click, ask. Another question pops up in the topic and slightly different from these icons, I click on it, I can view it. And if I was a student and I'll show you in the student page, you can then go and answer the question. It's quick little topic poll that you can put in your M, your classrooms. I use it just to get a feedback, instant feedback from their students. Have you enjoyed the lesson, for example, have you access the material? How long you spend it on Google clustering and that sort of thing. And the second thing that you can put in there is a material that these are good for, kind of pre-prep reading. There's no marking on it, there's no assignment with it. I usually put this in if I'm trying to give the top learners in the class some extra work or something they want to look at afterwards. So for example, social networking. And what is the future? And this might be something that I give to students to take a little look at. So I'm going to go on online or find an article. So I found this one the future of social networking at the turn of the decade. And now my copy there. Let's call it n. And it may be that. Please complete some further reading. Now, I'm not going to mark this. I'm not going to necessarily check that they've done it. Issue something extra for and that's one of the things Guo clustering is really good for is that like you can have a class, you can deliver a lesson. You can't always tell them everything you want to tell them within that lesson or you can't push them into the direction that you wanted to go in. So you can add in a material. There's just something for them to read some visit to look at, something that they can, they can have a little look at home, for example. You're gonna mark it. They can just go on and see now that doesn't have to be a link, can be a Google Drive document. Again, it can be a YouTube video, it can be a file. You can create some thing for them to read, or it's just a material thrown to access. You don't you won't necessarily market or locally at our Sunday will turn up any grade book it will turn up in your to-do or anything like that. So I'm going to post it. So now I have a material there as well. So Materials, questions, quizzes, assignments, and assignments all in one topic that we'll look at. And the last thing I'm going to show you on here quickly as the reuse post. Unless I founded a lifesaver because obviously all of my year groups are all on the same unit, same time. So yes, seven, we'll do all my classes in one way it within the same muscle and the next, we'll do the same lesson. So idea is I only ever have to post one lesson into one-year seven class. And then I can click on reuse post. Now sometimes Google Earth is quirk where it doesn't show up as well and you have to refresh and do it. But I can go and reuse post. I can find one of my seven classes. I can find the lesson. So this one Lesson five, search on the web and I can reuse it, and it will bring all of the materials and assignments. For instance, I've gotten into this lesson, into this classroom. It will drag across the topic and everything else. And then you can just click assign. And it's really cool because they're Miles Davis, our post it into one class and reuse it for my other four or five classes. And I can then have distributed lesson materials to all of my S7 classes in the space of three minutes. And I'll do that at the start of the week for each year group here, 789. So that is why we use post is really useful. And so we hopefully that, that has helped you. We've, we've looked at assignment taken, set the grade them, use rubrics on them, and also provide feedback for your students. We then looked at quizzes, assignments, how to set them on, how to use them, how they, how they connected the gradebook I, you can use self-marketing quizzes and looked at some of the advanced settings within a quasar, a Google form. And then we'll just quickly touched on materials and question. Now the reason that I have not gone in depth with materials and questions is because I find that most people don't really use them as they're quite simple. It's a simple question that you want to ask the class or material that you want them to read. But the key differences between them and assignments is that they are non-graded, ungraded, they're not marked. And you may have a quiz, you may have a question that is a pole topic we looked at, but not necessarily graded is just you can see what people have put in there. That's why they're a little bit last time is spent because they're not as in depth or as intricate. And after that's what I'm gonna do is the next topic will be on the, just a little touch on the G Suite with Google Classroom. So Y G Suite using GCP is beneficial to use in Microsoft documents. And also a little touch on the cluster i folder and then how to use Google meet within Google Classroom. 13. 6.1 Google Drive: I'll Google Classroom is the class Dr. fold. It's a good way for you to be able to see all of your different students, assignments and files all in one place is two different ways you can get to it. You know, they get to it through your actual Google Classroom homepage here. Click on where it says test class. There is a file button here. It has opened the folder. If you click on that, it will open up your Google Drive. And in their Dolby, anything that you've put in. So for example, we aren't assignment labeled social networking. Obviously there's not enough noise completed it. There's also the quiz that we did and the untitled document, which was the assignment document we're going to give to the students. Now, I can show you this a bit more in depth in one of my other classes. There is also another way to access this. If you were in your actual class here, you would go to class work and go to class Drive folder, do the exact same thing. It'll bring up your class folder in Drive. And I'm gonna show you one for a class that I've already got. So if I go to seven apps, for example, I'll go to classwork and go to class Drive folder. I can see all the assignments lessons that I've done for them. So that's 1234. If I go to lesson four, for example, I can see all the worksheets at all of the students who worked on it. And then if I just preview that, I can see what they've, they've filled out. This is good if students lose there were, of course they don't turn it back into you. You can actually still access it through Google Drive. I always say that Google Drive is the hope for using Google Classroom because everything you ever needed will be in here. All of your classroom drives will be in here. So for example, if I go on to mine and go to Google Classroom and got to classroom, all of my classes are in here. I could go to 70 for example. It shows me have thinner ever doing that. Then I can click on and see all of my students touches all of their work is stored in here for you. It's one of the best ways to keep yourself organized. And in case you ever lose anything, or like I said, a student loses anything, it's quite easy for you to access it back through your class Drive folder within the classroom or from the actual class page here. 14. 6.2 Google Meet: The classroom that you start off on, Google has built into it now. So I never used to be, I have to go to meet dot google.com on its own and use that to login. But now, and you can generate meet links within a Google Classroom and others. On the most beneficial things about this is that on your class you can have the exact same link every single time. So students are having to go and find out what Lincoln is for one day and then it might change it the next day. So it's always the same link where you can do for this is in your class. So we might test class here. You get class code and you get meet link, and you can get generate meet links. If you click on that, click on the button, it will generate a classroom specific Google meat link, which is here. Now, two things. Firstly, I would do that at the start of setting up your classroom, but I would make it an invisible to the students at first. And the reason that I would do that is because they can go on Google meet whenever you don't have to be there for them to go on to Google me at that link is just a constant live video stream that's always there. And so it's always something that I have got the teachers at our school into the habit of making sure that the first one in that last one hour and then remove the link from classroom. So what I would do is if I wanted to set up a Google meet with in my classroom, I would click on the link. It would bring Google me up. And then what you can do is on unhide it them. So you can go to settings. On here you have your meat link and you can make it visible to students. So that now becomes visible to your students and they can click on that and they could access google me. I'll usually share some thin, so I would say today's Google meet at 345. And the link will be available at the top of the class. And what that does is allows you to have a Google meat that is specific for your class of all of the time that you can control whether it is visible, when it is not visible, and allows you to have a bit more control over who goes on to your Google me and, uh, what times. 15. 6.3 Docs vs Office: Show you the difference between using Microsoft Office documents on your Google Classroom and using Google Docs and document because it's quite a big difference in during our transition to remote layer and our school. Quite a lot teachers and made quite big mistake, which meant that the kids couldn't submit work back properly as the for us, I'm going to quickly show you the difference. So I've set up two assignments here and student view. And I am going to show you the Google Docs 1 first. So if I click on this view assignment, and as soon as I lock on, it has work or peer for me. And I'm using my friends accounts that I can login to show you, but this is what it looks like. So they've submitted some 2B they've put on the assignment of Google document to complete. If I click on this, it will open the Google Doc Oc forming. I can type in below. I have seen the assignment. Wait for it to save of top, click off. And it will still be there when I click turn in. So as I add, that work has now been edited. If I click back into it, you'll see the work that I've done. You can either turn it in at the top here, or you can go back to your assignment page and turn it in. So when I turn on a, i will be notified that that work is being done and turned in by the student. That is y dy is how seamless it is with Google Docs. If I, for example, was to go back and show you the one that's with Microsoft Office. It's a little bit different. I get my work up in the top right here. But when I click on this, Google provides a preview for me. And I'll say Open width, but it only gives you different options to open this awkward because it's an office document and not a Google document and other is nothing things you can use and click on one of these third party apps. But usually what it requires for the students to go and add or create their own document and then resubmit that back into you. Now, this causes confusion for a lot of students that I've worked with. It, it becomes a bit long-winded process when, when really when using Google Docs or you have to do is click on the button. It takes you through to your own Google Doc. You can edit and resubmit it all in one go this one. Now we have to start creating your own ones. You have to start and filling them in and then turn in some of them. You have to go into Google Drive and actually find it and attach it yourself. And so it becomes a little bit of a, a long-winded process. I would always recommend that you you use submit things as Google documents rather than as Microsoft document. As it will just make that process a lot smoother. And one way you can make sure that what you are doing, anything you are submitting turns into new doctrines. If you go to drive dot google.com and you go to settings at the top right here. You can check a button here that says convert uploads. And now what I'll do is anything that I upload into my Google Drive, even if it's a Word PowerPoint Excel, it will convert it to the Google version of it. And what that means is that whenever you are putting things into your own classrooms in assignment, it will put the Google version of it, not the Microsoft version which kind of conflicts with Google Classroom. 16. 7.1 Student View: So one last thing to show you is what glucose actually looks like to a student. Pr students view the login exactly same way that was shown in the first topic on gain started, you go to classroom dot google.com, click on, go to classroom, and then put it in their school email address. And the password that they use usually will they use to login to your own school network? At once you're in there will look something like this. I've already got the one test classrooms that we've been working on. But also, you can click on here and you can click on join class. Now, the class won't, it won't usually have and create underneath. That's just because I've signed off on another account. Just so I can show you what this looks like from a student's view. Obviously, there will usually have more classes along here. And they will have things like under here, what is Jew in that class? So due Wednesday, the test assignment that can also click on this button here, click on the to-do, and it'll show you what needs to be done and on what date they need to be done. They can look at what they're missing, what they've done and what they've been assigned is really good for them to visualize what it is they need to be doing over the next couple of weeks when they're in class. You can also look at a calendar. The calendar will tell you when things need to be done and what days and at what time. But usually we just stick to the normal classroom homepage like this. They can look at their own work and they can look at their own folder in Google Drive for their work that they're doing inside that class today can only enroll from the class if they want to. And they can just click into going. Once they go in, you'll notice that they only get three tabs at the top. They have no grades. They can only see stream classwork and people so they can see who else is in the class. And obviously we say stay away from streams, which is possible unless you just posting the question or directly into a Google meat. But here you have come in and it tells you what is due to the hammer test assignment due on the Wednesday. They can view all that will show them often taken to this page again. But little things that are upcoming in the moment will come here. And if you click on that, it actually takes you to that assignment. If you go to class work, you can see what is being set by the teacher. So obviously in here we have the social networking with Google Docs and the social networking with MS. Office that I was just showing you in the earlier video. I've also put in a test assignment here that I'm going to show you what it looks like. If you click on the assignment pane, opens up, it tells you what's been put in their documents wise. There's been assigned when it's Jim. It also has the description in there and the rubric, if you put one end that they can save now, I usually tend to stay away from just having it pop open like this and I want them to always click on view assignment. There's a number of reasons why. And I'll show you now. So if you click on view assignment, it takes them to the assignment pagans is the own, their own little subsection just for that particular assignment. In here, you've got your work part at the top where they can adult create mark as done. They also have the title of the assignment, the instructions underneath how many points it's out of if it is graded when it's due. And also, as I mentioned earlier, they have this rubric where they can click on and they can see what they need to do to get to certain level. So the can, it says outstanding, here's ten points. Well don't your workers or standard normal specs. Goddess five-point to work as good and as part of the assignment and they fail 0, they can private comment the teacher here. So is this Jew November for or November ninth. And that will send a direct comment to the teacher who will and see it and be able to reply back in here for you. Once I've got these, I can click on this one, which is a view only. So you can't emit and do a anything to it. But in here you would have your slides that you want it to work on. And obviously I've got a Google doc which is also fuel only on here. So the student can only view, they can't edit it and now they can request edit access book. They know that they shouldn't be actually on this editor in it, that should be fine. All that does is pink and email to you to say that someone has requested access. I get it all the time. But usually it doesn't tend to be much of an issue because i don't use Google docs are things. If you only if we go back to this, Google says networking with Google Docs assignments is another example. Sorry on here. You can see what it would look like when something is specific copy for that person. It says their name and is up here and do your work. If I click in here again, as I mentioned earlier, they can type into whatever it is you've given them. And then they can click turn in, or obviously this one's already been turned in. So you can also submit if you want to make any changes to it. And when they're on here, go back to the classroom. It gives a big list of nf has been done. Usually these, these and icons will gray out once you've submitted some tensor because I've submitted that Google Docs work, it's grayed out now, so I know I don't need to do it. However, these other assignments I've not marketers don't. If they need to add or create anything, they would put it in here and then markers don't. And that's how they access their work on your classwork, how they can edit it, do things to it, and then attach it back to the assignment for you to see. And again, class commented underneath, they will usually show up. That's just because this particular classroom as allowing students to comment, that part isn't usually there unless you allow them to comment on the actual classroom stream. Here we've got obviously private comments as we mentioned, you can delete ones if you send them by accident as a student. But that's really the basics of what, what each assignment will look like. Now, obviously assignments will look different depending on what you put in there with you, but rerecord you put in descriptions or titles, but they all follow a similar kind of layout in that they have their own assignment pages with the student's work, the materials that you've given them, any sort of advice or guidance on marking with the rubric and then a comment section for them to access as well. 17. 7.2 Guide to Using Google Classroom on Tablet: Okay, so this is just a quick guide on how to use Google Classroom and when you're on a tablet or a phone for the purposes of this video, I'm going to be using it on my tablet, my iPad. But the same things apply if you're doing it on your phone as well. So first things first we have to do is you have to go to the App Store or the Google Play Store, whichever is that you use and download the Google suite of apps. So for example, I've got a few more than you actually need, but I've got Classroom Drive Docs Sheets, Slides. I recommend that you download at least classroom docs slides and sheets because that's mainly what your teachers will be. Same work on. And I've done that. I can look into all of these different apps using your school username and password. If I click on classroom, it will open up my Google Classroom forming a or say the signed in as me. And then it will display all my classes in a big list for me. And I can go through, and I can look up all the different classes that I'm part of. I can also join from here as well, can just added a code if I miss it. Once you're in here, again, you can look down the left hand side. And we hope your calendar. And what you can do is you can now go in and see your works. If I, for example, go into this year nine AAC app for Miss Marie. If I click on that, I get these three tabs on the bonds similar to if you use a computer, I got stream, I get classwork, get people. And if I go to my classmates hovers I usually showed, I will get a list of my assignments here and when their GUN. If I click on, for example, that this lockdown project here, it'll take me to the assignment page. Now it looks slightly different from for using it on a computer here you'll get your assignment information. Any attachments on here. So this one, the misses per n. And then you'll get your, your work space at the bottom. If I swipe up from here, I will get anything that Mrs. attached and wants me to complete. So for example, there's a Google slides here that she wants me to put my work on if I have downloaded the absence, signed him properly. When I click on this Google slide, it will take me to the Google slides up and I can start. Editors have I click on it and I get a little preview of what it looks like here. If I click on this button in the top right or square with the arrow, it will open it and Google slides for me. When I'm here, I can start to edit it. So if I go to update and I start typing in, if I start adding in things, so I want to update, update to this is, you know, editing yet or adding a new, a new slide. And I want to add some different things and I can change the font to make it bold. I can, I can underlie now, I could do all the stuff that I should usually be able to do on Google sites on the computer. I then click the tech in the top left which saves or I've done and just confirm that it's happened. If I then just click off Google Slides, get rid of it and go back to the classroom. If I go and click on this slides now it'll show me a preview. It'll show me the updated version. So update to this, editing this it automatically saves for you. So what you would do in that case is then just handed in your work and click on handed. That will then go to your teacher. You can still do all the other things here. You can send a private comments or private comment, text by sand. Now that will go to mix, then it will send her to say, I'm trying to speak to it. And I can also add attachments still. So either link, file, a photo or anything for that I want from Google Drive. That is, in a nutshell, how you use this using a tablet or a phone, it's the same on your phone as well. Any questions though? Sanctuary to me.
