I recently ran some Professional Development sessions at my school for Google Classroom users. It was billed as an advanced session - for those who have at least used Classroom with their students a little, either now or in the past.
Dubbed 'Digging Deeper with Google Classroom', the session introduced 20 key features or areas that may be unfamiliar to the busy teacher. The session was also broken up with a Quizizz after every 5 features - keeping it interactive and making sure energy levels were propped up on a Friday afternoon.
The Quizizz quizzes that go with the session can be found here or click the image below:
The presentation can be found below. The yellow Quizizz slide indicates that it's time for a quiz.

Google's latest offering helps teach children to be safe, confident explorers of the online world. I used it with a class of Y5 children today and the consensus was overwhelmingly positive. The children play in four areas, tackling hackers, phishers, oversharers and bullies.
Interland is split into the following four worlds:
This game teaches children to be respectful and kind online and to report cyber-bullies.
Here the focus is on sharing information online only with people you trust.
Tower of Treasure
Tower of Treasure is all about making strong passwords...
The fourth game teaches children to steer clear of phishers and other fake stuff online.
There's also teacher resources available and a YouTube collaboration in the form of the so-called #BeInternetAwesome challenge - have a look at the videos below to find out more.
