Through a Teacher's Eyes: Using Classroom and Other Google for Education Tools
In this webinar, you'll hear from a teacher at Pajaro Valley Unified School District in California about how her third graders use Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education. She will share her experience as one of the pilot classes for Classroom, a new tool coming this September. Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive, and Gmail to help teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes easily.
Hear how she applied these tools when her class began using Chromebooks and Google Apps. She will share examples and benefits of using Classroom with her students, as well.
Participants will:
  • Get an overview of the Google for Education solution which includes Chromebooks, tablets with Google Play for Education, and Google Apps for Education (including the new tool, Classroom)
  • Learn how this solution can be used to improve student learning, collaboration, and innovation
Guest:
Janie Islas, bilingual 3rd grade teacher, H. A. Hyde Elementary School, Watsonville, Calif.
This webinar will be moderated by Jennifer Holland, Education Team, Google
