Google Classroom: Reduce, reuse, recycle
Limited Capacity filling up

Google Classroom helps teachers save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students. Things that are old can be incorporated into the new. We just need to rethink how we engage students in this new era. Classroom is one such vehicle for engagement. During this workshop participants will play alongside each other in a Google Classroom as students and see what is possible for them to implement. Learn34.com accounts will be provided to session attendees prior to the workshop, to expedite learning time during the session. Please bring your teacher laptops.
