Group Assignments in Google Classroom

As I do Google Apps for Education workshops I often get this question: How do I create a group assignment in Google Classroom? At the last workshop we brainstormed options, and actually came up with this option that The Gooru came up with. This video outlines the process.

With all the updates in Google Classroom I’ll bet there will be another solution coming soon, but until then this works great.

App or Extension?

What’s the difference between an app or extension? I get this question a lot when I’m doing Google Apps for Education workshops.

Simply speaking¬†an extension extends, or modifies a window in the Chrome Browser. It will work within the window you have opened and enhances that window. An example of an extension that allows you to ‘cleanup’ a digital article is Readability (or Read Comfortably).

An app, or application, opens up its own window and simply takes you to new website or webtool. An example of an app is WeVideo. This app takes you to WeVideo where you can create videos.

Here’s a short video I created that answers this question… check it out!
