Introduction to Google Classroom - Edudemic

Introduction to Google Classroom - Edudemic | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

With the recent announcement of Google Classroom, school districts and educators across the country that are currently integrating Google Apps for Education into their classrooms are awaiting the opportunity to gain access to Google’s workflow solution. While there are currently a number of workflow solutions and approaches within Google Drive that classroom teachers can take that range from manual organization and file / folder sharingto advanced automation with tools such as Doctopus, Google Classroom provides a viable option that strikes a balance – blending tight integration with Google Drive, an intuitive interface and advanced features that experienced Google Drive users are looking for.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 27, 9:35 PM

Do you know how your brain learns new information. On August 25, 2014 I posted How Does The Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies. This post is a follow-up to that post and has five questions. Below is one of the questions with the answers, but to see if you are correct you will need to click through to the post. 

Quoting from the post:

4) Your students each have an important class presentation to make in the coming days, and they need to memorize some material by heart. How much time should they spend studying and how much time practicing from memory?

A. A third of the time reading, two-thirds practicing from memory.
B. 90 percent studying the text — and 10 percent practicing from memory at the end.
C. 50 percent reading, 50 percent practicing.
D. Just read it a few times and sleep on it.

If learning how to learn is something you would like to learn more about, and if you would be willing to participate in a MOOC, Coursera will be offering the course Learning How To Learn again. It will begin on Oct. 3rd, so head over to Coursera to sign up. The course is free (unless you need documentation that you took it, in which case it will cost $49). I am in the final week of the course and would recommend it to you. At some point I will post my final assignment to share.

This interesting - using stories to get your message or information across. This could be great for primary and secondary schools using online platforms like Google Apps for Edu or Edmodo - frame your unit of study around a story to engage and clarify your purpose.


Great tips on how to get started in this article.


Do you enjoy storytelling? I love it - particularly in maths! Makes fractions so much more fun if theres' a 'real' event/story they have to fix or solve!

Leadership is a quality that transcends rank, salary, and title. Leaders come in all shapes, sizes, and ages. No matter where you are in your career journey, the time to start acting the part is now.
