screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-10-20-53-amAfter last year’s successful pilot in the Upper Division English Department, both the Middle and Upper Divisions have adopted Google Classroom! Google Classroom is a central site where teachers and students connect, track progress, and learn. In Grades IV through VIII, teachers are using Google Classroom to create a blended learning environment where students can participate in online discussions and share documents with their teachers.

Some ways Google Classroom has already impacted student learning:

Science teacher Megan McLean recently worked with Elaine Hamilton, Engineering Design Coach, to create a google slides template for students to use to document their learning process in an electricity project. Google Classroom helps keep the collaborative work all in one place.
