This course is for teachers who find it difficult reading through the help sections for online software. Sometimes it is just so much easier if someone would just show you how to do the things that you want to do!
Also, you might have that feeling that there is so much more you could be doing with a tool like Google Classroom, but you´re just not sure how to get from where you are now -- up to that higher level of mastery.
If any of this is true for you as a teacher, who wants to either start using Google Classroom or perhaps improve on your current practise…
Then this course is definitely for you.
p.s. Finally, you might be a teacher who is now being faced with the difficult challenge of distance teaching and learning. This course will give you the complete toolbox for thriving as a teacher in this new reality!
