Extension for Google Classroom™
As a teacher, I designed Classwork Zoom with a teacher's needs in mind, and my enthusiasm for it is based on how much it truly helped me with my classes.
Classwork Zoom for Google Classroom™ puts student work assigned in Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, and even Sites into a scrollable and zoomable timeline.
In this way, Classwork Zoom provides a missing piece in the puzzle of student effort and engagement. It can help you answer questions like…
- Are my students engaged in the work that I've assigned?
- Are they managing their time?
- Are they doing their own work in individual assignments?
- Are they contributing evenly enough in group work?
When you can clearly SEE student effort, then you can more effectively encourage and nurture it. Let's say that using Classwork Zoom you discover that your students have a time management problem, always doing their work at the last second. If you then try to address that problem, you don't have to just hope or guess that the situation improves. All you need to do is build a timeline of the next assignment and see if their habits are changing.
Did it work? Great! If not, you can try something else, and you will KNOW whether it made a difference.
