Fran asks: Going to try using Google Classroom this week as it seems the pandemic is going to go on for a little longer – I need resources! I’m going through a few sites now, but thought that I might turn to The DV Show for more specifics when it comes to the video streaming part – Google classroom and Google Meet integration. I’m reading about sharing files and attachments? Whiteboard? How do I show reactions and stickers? Taking attendance?

Google Classroom is one of the most popular digital tools for the K-12 classroom. Glad to hear your district is finally implementing a solution.

Google Classroom has improved vastly over the years, and teachers have learned how to make the most of this flexible assignment manager and communication hub but now with the new online video feature called Meet the game has changed and teachers are coming up with lots of new questions on how to use it.

Here is a list of videos which specifically answer some of your questions. Just click here to start watching and learning!

  1. Once your class is in a Google Meet together, students who will raise their hands in class and give great answers are absolutely refusing to respond in video format. One parent said her kiddo was in tears. I think for them it is more of a parent issue. In class we have an extremely safe venue where it is totally okay to make mistakes, and some of their parents are just… complete perfectionists. Thanks for pointing us to these tutorial videos, Brian! Great stuff at The DV Show!

  2. I’m in tears. I’m seeing my shy students blossom in Google Classroom and communicate more than they ever do in person. If anything good can come from this, it’s that I get to see some of these kids’ personalities finally come through. I’m so happy seeing them comment and get excited about lessons after learning how to incorporate this into my online class thanks to these videos! This is a lot of work, but it makes me feel like keeping up with them is worth it. Thanks, Brian at the DV Show you guys are amazing!

  3. I totally agree with this. It’s one of the best things to come out of this whole thing!

    I’m sad to say that in a class of 30+ students, it’s difficult to get to know the shy and quiet students. But with Google classroom and Meet, I feel like they are the ones that are the most involved and write me such thoughtful messages. I also am amazed at the fact that, in my absence, a shy student even stepped in and tried to help a student in my place.

    Another thing I found is that Zoom is really helping me be more unbiased in what questions I should answer and who I should give attention to. I had a meeting with the a class and unmuted them all at first(big mistake). Afterwords, I muted them and said I would be taking questions from the chat. What a revelation this was! I was actually able to answer all of the questions and even had a small chat with the remaining four students about how they are dealing with everything.
