Today we used the tool Flippity to randomly create breakout groups. It is very easy to create - just type the names of your students into the pre-made template! Flippity can also be used to create flashcards or even a Jeopardy game. Great way to review prior to an assessment.

1. Select Flippity

2. Select "Random Name Selector Template"

3. Select "Make a Copy", then change the name of the document

4. Type in the first names of each of your students

5. Click on the tab "Get the Link Here" (on bottom of spreadsheet)

6. Select File/Publish to the Web/Publish/OK

7. Copy the link, then select the "X" in the top right corner

8. Paste that link into the Green cell on your spreadsheet. A new link will appear below. This is the link to click on anytime you want to make groups or randomly call on a student.

Google Classroom Updates

Google Classroom Organization with Topics Teachers can organize the class stream by adding topics to posts, and teachers and students can filter the stream for specific topics. This will make it much easier to search or refer back to an old post or assignment.
Google Classroom Email Notifications for Parents and Guardians Parents and guardians can receive automated daily or weekly email summaries of student work and class announcements. (Teachers must invite parents first.)
​Please let me know if you need any help setting up your Classroom. Thanks!
