This session will address how Google Classroom has worked with students and what practices have been successful or challenging in using the Google Classroom. The resources used will be available on the website listed with this workshop.
Google Classroom's Learning Management System (LMS) will be explored and best classroom practices based on our action research through employing its use in Elementary Classrooms. We will be spending time setting up a class and exploring some of the features with students.
We will explore the Blended Learning implications and the communication advantage this tool provides to promote student success through organization and a potentially paperless classroom.

Katherine Hill, Canyons School District
I began my teaching career in 2005 in Oklahoma and relocated to Utah in 2008 after completing my Masters degree in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum at the University of Oklahoma. I have been working as an Education Technology Specialist in Canyons School District since 2012.
Working as an Ed Tech has given me an opportunity to research new tools and help be effectively utilized in schools. I have loved helping teachers to increase student engagement, find more access to tech tools, and work to implement best practices in this transition to a more digital education.
