You asked, we listened.
The Studies Weekly online platform is now integrated with Google Classroom!
Now, with just a few clicks, you can assign articles, images or videos to the entire classroom. The Google Classroom integration works with our entire platform, making your job smoother.
David Bagley, Studies Weekly vice president of sales, explained that many teachers across the nation use Google Classroom, and have been asking for this integration for some time.
“The best part of this integration is that it allows teachers the flexibility of reaching so many students instantly and to track progress, go paperless in the classroom, and communicate with both parents and students. And it works with any device,” Bagley said.
You will now see the Google Classroom icon on the Studies Weekly platform, and it works individually with every digital source. Teachers can assign a single video, image, article or assessment to students’ classroom. For extension activities, teachers can customize assignments and pull in other media from the platform as well.
To connect your Studies Weekly account to your Google Classroom, your students’ Studies Weekly usernames must be their Google Classroom email.
For those that want to use the integration now, you will need to log in to your account and manually change your students’ usernames to their Google Classroom email.
1. Select your classroom in the Studies Weekly platform
Click the Classes Tab on the top, then select your Classroom on the lefthand side.
2. Navigate to edit each student
3. Edit the student’s username
At the beginning of each school year, your auto-rostering program can link both platforms, but make sure to check this username requirement for all students.
How to use the Integration
1. From an article, navigate to the Google Classroom Icon in the corner.
2. Click on it, and select the Classroom you are sharing it to, and the action from the Classroom options. Click “Go.”
3. Add your own notes, points, due date, etc. Click “Assign.”
4. The assignment shows up in your students’ Classroom stream.
Assigning Specific Sources
You can also assign specific audio, images or videos from an article, or search for them and assign them individually. To do so, simply look for the Google Classroom icon on each source.
