Comments Off on Send Google Classroom Feedback
In the bottom left hand corner of Google Classroom is a question mark. This allows you to “Send feedback.” Only include one feedback each time. You can fill it out multiple times. The feedback is tagged and they will let you know if they incorporate your feedback. 2 suggestions, click “Send feedback” twice. Also, remember to send them what you love about Google Classroom.
As teachers, you get a lot of emails, and it’s easy for messages from students to get lost in the shuffle. In Google Classroom, students can easily email teachers by leaving a private comment on an assignment.
Sometimes student emails are vague and can be hard to decipher. When a student leaves a private comment in Google Classroom, the email that the teacher receives will be linked to an assignment, so that teacher will know what the student is referring to.
Comments Off on Google Classroom Mobile: Copy Class Code
Copy the Class Code
On the browser version of Google Classroom there is a tiny triangle next to the class code that says “Copy code.” However, on mobile there does not appear to be any way of copying the class code. Seemingly frustrating because copying the code to email to a student is very handy. No worries, you CAN copy the class code from your phone or tablet!
No menu option is needed on mobile, simply hold your finger down on the class code in Google Classroom and it is automatically copied to your clipboard.
Sharing the responsibility of the classroom can be one of the best things to improve a teacher’s practice. Coteachers can be easily added or removed from Google Classroom.
To add a teacher click on the “About” tab and choose “Invite Teachers” on the left-hand side of the screen.
Search for your coteachers by typing in their Gmail address or Google Apps for Education Address and choose “Invite”. This will send an invitation to the co-teacher. The coteacher will need to accept the invitation before being able to access the Classroom.
As teaching responsibilities change, teachers can be removed from the class. From the About screen, click the three dots in the teacher block and choose “Remove from class”.
Comments Off on Google Classroom: Students Answer the Question
Answer the Question or Ask a Question
Using the “Create question” option in Google Classroom is a great way to hear from all students. It can be a little tricky for students at first since it seems there are 2 places to answer the question. One is the answer line that says “Type your answer.” The other is the option to “Add private comment.”
Type Your Answer
Type your answer is the first line and is the answer line. This is what is submitted for teachers to be able to view student responses.
Add Private Comment
A Private Comment goes only to the teacher, so it seems like an acceptable way to respond to the question, but this would not sort with the other students’ responses. The Private Comment would be a place for a student to ask a clarifying question.
