A Practical Guide to Teaching Using Google Classroom

In response to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, there is an expectation that schools and colleges will have contingency plans in place for the provision of remote education and blended learning, should individuals or groups of pupils need to self-isolate. This in turn assumes mastery of the latest video communications technology.

Presented by John Insley, practising e-safety lead and current head of IT and computing, this beginner’s guide shows headteachers and teaching staff how to create and manage a virtual classroom or meeting using Google Classroom, identifying key tips, tools, features and benefits.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding how to create instant virtual meets or schedule classes in advance.

  • Identifying settings which can be adjusted to create an optimum classroom environment.

  • Identifying tools which enable the host to have overall control of the virtual classroom, including entry and exit of pupils.

  • Understanding how to use features such as creating assignment, documents, using breakout rooms and recording to deliver effective remote education.

  • Appreciating other Google Classroom features such as raise hand and chat functions.
