Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Try These New Google Classroom Features

Last week Google introduced a bunch of new options in Google Classroom and in Google Forms. Some of the new options were relatively minor and will only matter to administrators while others will be of interest to almost all teachers who use Google Classroom. Three new options that will appeal to almost all teachers are the ability to see all of an individual student’s work in one stream, a larger and easier to display class code for students, and the ability to re-arrange the order in which classes appear in your teacher dashboard. In the video embedded below I provide an overview of those three new options in Google Classroom.
