Join the Google Classroom revolution! It will completely change the way you deliver assignments, communicate and collaborate in your class, and give your students future-ready skills!

Google Classroom is a free application designed by Google to help students and teachers communicate, collaborate, organize and manage assignments, go paperless, and much more!

This application was developed by Google specifically for students and teachers, and they want it to be your go-to assignment manager for Google Drive and beyond.

Google Classroom is a very clean, easy-to-use application, but there are a lot of best practices you will learn along the way.

I’ve put together some of the tips I have learned while using Google Classroom into this handy infographic. S

et your classroom up for success and get ready to be amazed at the ease and simplicity Google Classroom brings to your workflow.


If you are just getting started with Google Classroom, these 6 tips for getting started with Google Classroom will help you think about your setup and organization.

Before you get started, be sure to download the FREE Google Classroom Cheat Sheets for Teachers and Students.

1. Use Google Chrome

To maximize the features in Google Classroom, teachers and students should use the Google Chrome browser. Google Chrome is a fantastic learning environment for all things Google!

Here are 5 Chrome extensions that make Google Classroom even better.

2. Create Naming Conventions for Your Classes

4. Use Topics to Organize

Create topics to organize your content, assignments, and resources. From the Classwork page, click on “Create” to add new topics. I suggest creating a topic for year-round resources so they are easy to locate, like “Class Resources.” Consider what topics fit your curriculum the best.

5. Differentiate Assignments

Make use of one of the great features of Google Classroom that allows you to give assignments to individual students or groups of students. Every student doesn’t have to do the exact same assignment at the same time. Get the details here: How to Differentiate Assignments in Google Classroom.
