    A pretty good introduction to some of the bells and whistles you can use in Google Classroom. Even non-tech wizards will enjoy this slender tome.

    The book The Google Infused Classroom, written by Holly Clark and Tanya Avrith is a guidebook on how to organize and connect teaching pedagogy with digital resources.

The Google Infused Classroom focuses on how to incorporate Google Education Apps into your lessons. One of the primary purposes of reading this book is to learn how to best use technology to enhance and improve the learning of your students. The book starts out by talking about pedagogy and gives you an idea of learning theories that are the foundation for the purposes in the book. The authors want teachers to learn how to use Google to make the classroom “…a place where we help our students visualize their thinking, give each and every one a voice, and allow them to share and publish their work” (Avrith, Clark, pp. 3) One of the core learning theories is about making thinking/learning visible. Making thinking/learning visible is about being able to hear from all students and finding out what they know and don’t know. With the use of apps”…getting inside our students’ heads—and finding out what they know and don’t know—is easier than ever.” (Avrith, Clark, pp. 14) Using tools like Socrative, Padlet, or Talk and Comment are all ways to allow students to show where they are in the learning process. A teacher can get immediate feedback where they can gather information on student learning and growth. The book then goes on to explain how after gathering information and deciding where your students are at in the learning process, you can use that information to “Curate or create resources that would help that individual learner’s needs.” (Avrith, Clark, pp. 42) The authors provide several examples of how certain digital tools will help differentiate your lessons. The last core idea of the book is about how to get students to demonstrate their learning through the use of technology. “Technology makes it possible to take something that was one-dimensional, like a poster, and layer it with student voice, explanations, and even virtual reality to make their learning come to life.” (Avrith, Clark, pp. 47) The authors provide resources and explanations on how tools will allow your students to share their learning in meaningful and authentic ways. The Google Infused Classroom was written with the intent to explain how digital tools should and can work with learning theories and how they are capable of working together to help empower classrooms. This book is full of examples on how to use tools effectively in your lessons. I was pleasantly surprised when I finished this book. Most of the time when I read books like this, a bunch of ideas are thrown at you, but not much support is given on how to incorporate them into your lessons. The Google Infused Classroom does the opposite of that. The authors of this book provide very sound ideas. It is easy to read, and it gives actual tools that can be used right away in your classroom.

    Overall this book did an excellent job addressing using technology in the classroom. I appreciate the fact that they emphasized pedagogy first. As technology is improving and ever expanding it is easy just to use them randomly throw a new tool into a rotation of cool tricks for students but using technology purposefully can be much more difficult.

I appreciate the fact that they emphasized pedagogy first. As technology is improving and ever expanding it is easy just to use them randomly throw a new tool into a rotation of cool tricks for students but using technology purposefully can be much more difficult. Avirth and Clark break down the process of purposeful adoption of different types of tools by addressing what the classroom should look like, how teachers should approach lesson planning, and how assessments should look then they say how technology can be used. One area that I though the others could improve on was the initial tool on how to use the book. At the start they say reader can choose to start at pedagogy or tools, I think that is a mistake. With their purpose of showing how technology can integrate with pedagogy is vital to the purpose of the book, I found it much more useful to read it with the intention of impacting student learning rather than just looking at flashy new tools.

    Quick read, and semi-helpful with some good charts and graphics discussing how and why we integrate technology and more specifically, Google, into our classrooms. Liked the graphic on do this, use this instead.

    Great if you don’t know much already There were only a few bits that I didn’t know already. A good investment if you don’t use Google in your classroom.

    This is a great resource for teachers that are new to using technology in the classroom. Even if you are a veteran, there might still be a couple of useful tools for you as well.
