In this session educators will learn how to make the transition into a paperless classroom using these 3 simple tools; Google Drive, Google Sheets, and Google Docs. These tools (apps) help students manage, submit, and collect their flipped classroom files between home and school.
Google Drive is a great resource to help you flip your classroom. It allows you to create class, small group, and individual student sharing folders. Google Drive allows you to add videos, pictures, spreadsheets, documents, surveys, etc. for centralized learning. It meets the Flexible Environment and Intentional Content Pillars of the Flipped Classroom.
Google Sheets is a way for students to collaborate and expand on their own learning. From jigsawing to notetaking to expanding on the objectives learned in class, students will benefit from Google Sheets. With the sharing capabilities through Google Drive, the students can manage and submit their assignments easily and efficiently.
Google Docs is a way to create and share your documents online and access your documents anywhere. The student can create a document at home and access it at school the next. A teacher could create an assignment, have the students duplicate it, and complete, then share with back with the teacher to submit it.
