While we would all prefer the traditional delivery of lessons and class work, it seems now we need to rethink how we can continue to encourage learning from home. It can be a daunting task for teachers to navigate the various technology available to reach our students. So, for those of us who are tackling the digital learning curve, here are some neat tips and tricks for assigning classwork in Google Classroom along with some great tutorial videos whose accounts you can follow for regular updates.
Assign Classwork/Project via the “Create an Assignment” tab on the right of the screen:
Teachers can assign instructions, a due date, and attach files for their students to complete and ‘turn in’. This may be assigned to the whole class or individually depending on how you may wish to implement differentiation. When attaching a Drive file such as a document, slides, or sheets, you can choose the following options based on how you would like your students to complete the work:

Creating short answer or multiple-choice questions.
This can be another useful way for assessing your student’s understanding. Creating a question on Google Classroom will give you the option to post the question to one or more classes on a set date.
There will be different options for how you want your students to engage with the questions you ask in class. If it is a graded test then you can choose to not allow other students to see their peers’ responses. Or if you want to take a more collaborative approach to classwork, you can begin a discussion forum to the question that will allow students to respond to one another’s ideas. See the image below and check out the Google Support link for more information on creating multiple choice items, grading and attaching additional files to your question(s).

Create and Add topics to your Classwork page:
This can be a useful way to organise assignments, quizzes and class materials etc under your class’s topics or unit modules. You can create a topic in the class by first clicking ‘Classwork’ then ‘Create’ and you will find the tab ‘Topic’. When assigning tasks you will have the option to choose for it to pop up under the relevant topic. For more information on creating topics click the below Google support link.
