Bringing Math into the Real World with Google with My Maps
“I bring the world into my classroom by using Google My Maps. I drop pins around the world where students can zoom in and examine various buildings. With this new perspective, they can see the details of architectural designs and how shapes tie into the real world. Using these maps, as well as photos from Google Images, students can calculate data like surface area and volume. Then, I have them create Slides to explain how they derived their calculations.” -Yijie Liu, School of Science and Technology, Singapore (@yijie__91)

Teachers Become Students: Google Classroom for Professional Development
“We use Google Classroom at the district level to conduct our Professional Learning Communities, including New Teacher Induction. Lead teachers or district administrators serve as the ‘teacher’, while the teachers in training are the ‘students’. This structure allows teachers to be fully familiar with both sides of Google Classroom and acclimates them to the tool quickly.” -Ge-Anne Bolhuis, Whitfield County Schools (@gabolhuis)
