Building on the foundations in Google Apps Academy 101, this workshop guides teachers in designing learning and engaging students by using Google Classroom.

Participants will experience the student side of collaborating and creating content with Google Apps, and see how teachers can send, collect, and grade assignments easily using the Google Classroom interface.
