As teachers, we’re constantly looking for tools to enhance and extend learning and make our lives easier. Google provides a variety of unique resources that are perfect for exactly this. From scheduling, to sharing assignment information and updates with students and parents, to hosting guest lecturers, there are so many ways Google can help enhance your classroom and simplify your life as a teacher. Using Gmail for easy communication, Drive for information and document sharing, and Google Docs for easy creation of documents for classroom management are just a few of the creative ways that you can use Google in your classroom to improve structure and better support learning.
