9 Quick Tips for Google Classroom

In no particular order, here are my 9 tips and tricks that you can use to be more efficient when using Google Classroom.

1. Reuse assignments across multiple classes.

After you schedule an assignment for one class, go to the other class you want to schedule it for and click the + sign and hit the reuse button. Select the class you posted the other assignment in and choose the assignment you want to post.

2. Use Google Slides to Link Assignments

Make one master Google Slides file for the week to share with students. Then within the Google Slides file, link to each day’s assignment(s). That way students only need to find one assignment in Classroom.

3. Use Topics to Stay Organized

When students click on the Class Work Tab they can see each file organized by Topic if you take the time to organize your units into Topics. 

4. Use The Comment Bank to Speed Up Feedback

Copy and paste comments from the Comment Bank to speed up your process of giving students feedback.

5. Use the Slip-in-Slide Extension for Changes

If you change your document in google you have to reattach it to Classroom or the kids won’t get the new copy. OR, save yourself a ton of effort and use the browser extension to add a slide to all of the student copies!

6. Turn Off the Google Meets Icon in Classroom

Otherwise students can access the meet when you’re not there to present.

7. Turn Off Assignments Posting to the Stream

That way the Stream is used for announcements and is more likely students will actually see your important information.

8. Use Digital Stickers to Give Feedback

After students have turned in an assignment, add a private comment to give them feedback. Use Bitmojis or other digital stickers to add some color and positive reinforcement!

9. Use the Question Feature as an Exit Ticket

See what your students are learning with a quick exit ticket. Use the Question feature to have the answers all in one place.
