Google Classroom in Action

20161111_120638

A group of year 9 music students working online, through google classroom.

 

Teachers have developed tasks through google classroom to enable students to see results as they finish their tasks, rather than having to wait to find out their results. Students are encouraged to explore these tasks at home to further develop the skills and knowledge they already have attained in the classroom.

Students can also ask for clarification of tasks or ask about class activities to have a greater understanding of what they are being asked. This enables students to take ownership of their learning and keeps record of their efforts, progress over time and helps teachers see their areas of greatest need. This is one of the many tools available to students at Mangere College and both staff and students are excited to see the learning environment adapt and improve.
