When I first started to use Google Classroom, I was not prepared to answer my students when they asked me “Where do I click?”. It is so important to explore Classroom from their point of view too to understand their own workflow for complete and submit assignment or to answer questions.
Here are some videos that show both the Teacher and the Student view.
My life changed last month when I stumbled upon a post from Kasey Bell on Twitter! She got me out of my daily battle of dealing with my personal and my school Google accounts. For sure, I was becoming used to click on my school account every time I had to log in Classroom, but oh! the frustration of saving a document on Drive, just to realize that it wasn’t where it was supposed to be.
The solution? Having two different Chrome “identities”. It keeps things more separate and allow to have an environment specifically crafted for school.
OK, I have to admit that it still has its challenges. So much of my “personal space” is also dedicated to my work that it can be hard to decide, for example, which bookmark goes in which account, but it did help me to manage my Drives so much better!
