  1. Go Paperless!! with Google Classroom (3 hrs)
    Google Classroom is designed to help teachers create and collect assignments without having to keep up with all the papers, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google document for each student. It also creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student to help keep everyone organized. Students can keep track of what's due on the Assignments page and begin working with just a click. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom. In this session, teachers will learn how to create their classes and enroll students in those classes. Teachers will also learn how to create assignments to be worked on and turned in, and they will learn how to make announcements that are available for students to view.
