Google’s New Technology Curriculum for Grades 7-12

Google has a new technology curriculum for grades 7-12 classrooms! This course uses instructional videos and creative projects to teach students how to use G Suite applications like Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The curriculum’s project-based format allows students to apply their new skills to real, relevant problems. It also grounds students in digital citizenship and encourages them to use technology tools safely and responsibly. Get started here.

Google Classroom Now Open to All

Big news, Google Classroom is now open to individuals without G Suite for Education accounts! From the Google blog:

Starting today, these new Classroom users will be able to join existing classes and over the coming weeks, they’ll have the ability to create their own classes as well. Schools interested in using Google Classroom should still sign up for G Suite for Education.

This update gives schools more flexibility in how they collaborate with other organizations and students: For example, student teachers or visiting students can now easily integrate into their host school or university’s Classroom set-up.
