15 Ways to Make Google Classroom Better for Everyone




Today, I'm giving you another peek into my classroom, this time, to share tips for getting the most out of your Google Classroom. In this episode, you'll hear 15 better practices when using Google Classroom, from habits to technical tools.

The full transcript is available on the show's blog post at: www.coolcatteacher.com/e708

Sponsor - Hāpara Google Classroom is great, but as education standards evolve, there are a few things lacking. Admin teams require better analytics. Students need a one-shot view of their tasks and want everything on one page. And as you know, teachers desperately need better monitoring capabilities. All of this is possible with the Hāpara Instructional Suite that organizes teaching and learning workflows in G Suite and Google Classroom seamlessly. Go to www.hapara.com/coolcatteacher to learn more about how Hāpara can help your school.

Current Research and 4 Trauma Informed Principles to Help Students Now




We've updated the popular show from the spring with current research in October 2020 with Dr. Eric Rossen, the Director of professional development and standards for the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) which has created a recent COVID19 Resource Center. In today's show, Dr. Rossen helps us understand how we can help children wherever they are learning and wherever we are teaching.

Sponsor: Impero Teachers are often a first line of defense when it comes to looking out for students’ wellbeing.  I’ve discovered an amazing FREE tool from Impero Software that can help.  Impero back:drop is a free, cloud-based solution that helps schools manage and record student health information such as mental health, behavioral or health issues (including COVID-19 symptoms) or other concerns. Impero back:drop eliminates the need for paper-based reporting, plus provides a safe and secure place to record and store information about student safety concerns.

I love Impero back:drop because it really helps inform educators about a student’s health, from first aid, to sickness, to more complex mental health issues they may be experiencing. It’s FERPA, COPPA and HIPAA compliant, plus information can only be shared with permitted staff members. I hope you’ll check out Impero back:drop.
