At this point, Google Classroom can’t stand on its own. My school system seems to be a fan, and I’m a team player.
One day, in a galaxy far, far away, Google Classroom might be able to stand on its own. Until then…
How shall we supplement it?
First of all, as I’ve mentioned I hate that scrolling news feed. My courses don’t have textbooks. Or digital textbooks. It’s all me and a thousand other voices on the internet.
What’s a girl to do?
I’m not certain, but I think I’m going with Versal. It seems to provide a wonderful static space for the delivery of content. I can still customize its integration into each course with Google Classroom. I can even incorporate Google features with Versal.
Even within the “static” content, I can incorporate some sense of real interaction between the content and the learner or with interactions between me and my students.
