If this is your first time inviting students to your virtual classroom, the steps in this chapter may appear daunting. However, through past experience, today's middle and high school students already have a proficient understanding of technology and will complete these tasks quickly. When I teach with Google Classroom, the setup process only takes about 15 minutes with high school students. This chapter has provided you with the tools for those students that have never used Google Classroom, which, as the years go by, will decrease.
You are now able to install Google Chrome on Windows or Apple computers, as well as guide students in installing Google Classroom and other Google apps on their mobile devices. You can display the Class Code number to allow students to join your classes, as well as manually invite or remove students with an invite link or through Google Classroom as needed. Finally, you can email students directly from Google Classroom.
