This article will bring you to the list of the best Google tools for classroom teaching and learning. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice if you are a teacher. In order to make your classes more interesting, or to make your studying more productive and useful, it is almost impossible not to use your computer, tablet or phone. Also, I’m pretty much sure that you use even one of the numerous Google apps for education. If not, you definitely use Google Chrome to search for some relevant information, books or data, right? We are all more than thankful for this amazing Internet miracle.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the best Google tools for classroom teaching and learning from their list.
The first one is Google SketchUp. This is 3D modeling software that can improve, for example, art classes. It’s a great tool for kids since it’s not complicated for them to learn how to use it. Both teachers and students will learn more about 3D techniques and also gather some new knowledge from this area. It can be used for the purpose of constructing models of buildings, cars, trees or whatever else a teacher or students prefer. To make the class even more interesting the teacher can combine it with the Google Earth. The next tool is Google Calendar. If you have troubles to organize your time or you simply have a lot of things to do, Google Calendar may be of a huge help. No matter whether you are a student or a teacher, the good time management is the essence of the successful teaching and learning process. Because only when you know everything is well organized, you can relax and fully participate and devote to your classes. At last, but not least let’s check out Google CS First. If you didn’t know it by now, the shortcut CS stands for the computer science. This program is more than great for students aged 9 to 14. Teachers who teach these grades should definitely consider using this tool since computer science is the future. You don’t need to be an IT expert to start teaching this to your students, but a teacher who is willing to teach something that children will have use of, for the rest of their lives.
