Google Classroom has evolved consistently over the past few years. I have updated the Google Classroom section to take account of this. There are a number of departments working with Google Classroom this year
I have tried to illustrate in this updated section how easy it is to set up and monitor Google Classroom and how it could be essential as a teaching and learning tool.
Many thanks to Dave Ewart for volunteering to take the OneNote workshops.

One issue which tends to come up a lot at this time of year is google log in details. As pupils go to log on for the first time or the first time in a couple of months they run into log in issues. Invariably this has to do with them not using the @lagancollege.co.uk username. If they use this there shouldn't be an issue.
Derek Mooney and his team of Showbie aces have clearly demonstrated how to use Showbie well with the pupils. They have provided a range of great tips here but have also provided some brilliant examples :-)

Office 365 is the range of high quality Microsoft apps that we are all used too... and others in the family which you may not have heard of! This handy online training course allows you to teach yourself the basics of a wide range of these apps allowing you to get a handle on things in your own time and at your own pace.
There are going to be websites that are essential for the subject you teach! These may be subject specific websites you produce like Lagan History, Politics, RE, English, Physics or Maths. They may also be past paper questions or mark schemes from the exam board. Instead of wasting time looking these up or googling them why not try to add an 'app' link to these sites on your iPad.

This is one of the most commonly asked questions at this time of year. Now that you all have your class lists this is a run through of how to send them through to iDoceo from SIMS.
