Communicating in Google Classroom

Being able to effectively communicate in Google Classroom is absolutely essential. We need to encourage connections with our learners in a class and private capacity.

Using Bookmarks to Increase Productivity

Bookmarking may seem like a small thing but having an organised bookmarks bar will make it easier to get to your work faster than ever before. You could bookmark different classes that you are running, or lesson plans or even meet links. That way, all you need to do is simply click on the bookmark and you will be there!

Sometimes, saving a couple so seconds a day will amount to a lot of time in the long run.

Create an email template in Gmail

During this time we are sure that you are getting many emails which may potentially require you to send back the same response. Google has a great feature called templates. This gives you the ability to save the body of an email straight into your compose window. All you would need to do is then go and insert that email and send. You only have to set it up once!

Have a look at this video to learn how to enable templates and how to set them up.
