How Mindfulness Can Help Your Classroom

OK Google...How Do I Teach Online?

Did COVID-19 throw your students, and YOU, into a state of panic? Were you wondering why you couldn't just get the grades from Google Forms and have them in Google Classroom? I mean...they are both from Google right...that should be a thing...

Well, it is, and it is a simple fix! Come join the Google Classroom and learn new ways to simplify your life with Google. I mean, we use Google at home for a lot of stuff too so why not have it do the grading for us right? In this session, you'll learn how to create a test online, fix a Google meeting in your favor, use Google Sheets for your sign-in, sign-out logs, AND make quick and easy copies of your worksheet for every student. Just because we get to go back to the classroom, doesn't mean we can't take what we started with us. Did I mention that Google can help you grade?
