TodaysMeet is the a backchannel chat platform for classroom teachers and learners. Designed for teachers, TodaysMeet takes great care to respect the needs and privacy of students while giving educators the tools for success.
Students join fast, easy to start rooms with no sign up, and can immediately start powerful conversations that augment the traditional classroom.
Moderate content: Keep rooms focused by getting rid of off-topic or inappropriate messages.
Keep rooms open longer: Ongoing discussion? Long-term group? Keep rooms open for up to a year!
But only as long as you need: Close rooms whenever you're ready, not just when time runs out.
Keep it private: Limit who can join your room and keep tabs on the participants.
Rooms at your fingertips: Easily keep track of all your rooms, and see which are closing soon.
Be yourself: Own your own identity across devices and sessions—you can still pick a name, but you're always you!
Do you ever click a link to an email address and get frustrated when Outlook or Apple Mail pops up, rather than Gmail? Google Chrome makes it stunningly easy to make your Gmail account the default when clicking linked email addresses. Switching is easy and you don’t even have to go into your Chrome settings.
Google Classroom helps teachers create, assign, and collect student classwork and homework paperlessly. Teachers can seamlessly integrate Google Docs, Google Drive, and Gmail to create assignments, provide feedback for in progress and completed work, and communicate with their students directly and with whole class announcements--all without using a single piece of paper. Students can work on assignments in Google Docs and turn it in with a few clicks.
When teachers create assignments, folders are automatically created in Google Drive for each student. They can choose to share a single document (like project instructions), or automatically make a copy for each student (like a project template). They can see who has completed the work at a glance and assign grades. Students can easily see due dates on their assignments page, so they can stay organized and submit work on time.
For elementary teachers just getting started with Google Classroom, please contact your Curriculum Technology Specialist for assistance with student login information.
