If teachers have allowed students to post and comment, students will be able to click the + and add a post to the stream.
From there, students could type something about the assignment and then attach either a file, video or link.
This is what it looks like on an iPad.
Think about what this means. A student could attach any piece of work:
- a Doc, Sheet, Slides, Drawing from their Drive
- a link to something done in another web app like Haiku Deck or Vocaroo or Voki
- a YouTube video that they created
- a photo out of Photos or Camera Roll (how many apps on the iPad save back to the Camera Roll? TONS!)
- use the camera on the iPad and take a picture of ANYTHING
Once the work is attached to the post, students can receive feedback from their peers!
What a powerful use of Google Classroom! I am definitely adding this to my tips and tricks session.
This one simple question from an audience member had me thinking about Google Classroom in a completely different way. And it made me realize two things. Number one: I need to take more questions from the audience during my presentations. And number two: the smartest person in the room is THE ROOM!
So a huge thank you to the #aurorahuskies for teaching me about Google Classroom!
