We utilize all sorts of different avenues to teach students how to code; especially when we first see the students in 6th grade. We don't know where or what they have started within the "code" world. Checkout our resources here: http://draggo.com/cluster/pZehrqqrnQ==

Integrating new tools and workflows whilst introducing a new unit of inquiry would traditionally be steered away from. However, keen to pilot Google Classroom having launched GAFE in school two months ago, we were willing to challenge tradition and experienced a resounding success with both learning outcomes and engagement.


Setting up Classroom was incredibly straightforward using the resources below which were available for students to engage with from the moment they accessed Classroom.
