4 Ways to Impact Your Students’ Learning Experiences Using Google Classroom

1
Language classes can have discussions in the class language! Imagine getting your students discussion topics and assignments amongsth themselves in the language they are learning!
2
Students know what’s going on! You have one place where students need to look to stay on top of their classwork. Sentences that will become a thing of the past:  “The dog ate my homework” “I lost my USB drive” "I couldn't figure out how to share it"
3
Students aren’t held back by the device they’re using! Any device that has internet access can use Google Classroom - PC, MAC, Linux, Chromebook, Smartphones...anything goes!
4
Differentiation by media! You can give all your assignments media aspects for those students who learn best with sounds and images. Link to Khan Academy, Youtube, or make your own and share away with your students to enrich their learning experiences without messing links, folders, lost files and  sharing permissions confusion.
