EDU in 90: Google Keep in the classroom


[MUSIC PLAYING] TIM ANDERSON: Hey, everybody. Tim and Drea here, back with
another edition of “Edu in 90.” DREA ALPHONSO: As
always, we’re here to share the latest product
updates and top tips from our educator community. And in this episode,
we’re talking about one of my favorite
tools, Google Keep. TIM ANDERSON: Google Keep
is a quick and easy way to capture notes,
create to-do lists, and save important information. And recently, we
added it as a G Suite for Education core service. Let’s take a look
at a few ways you can use it in the classroom. [MUSIC PLAYING] DREA ALPHONSO: One
easy way for educators to use Google Keep is creating
voice notes through the Android or iOS phone app. With voice notes, you can easily
capture that lesson plan idea, even if you’re on the go
or at the grocery store. TIM ANDERSON:
Teachers could also use voice notes to share audio
feedback with students when reviewing their work. Later, students
can read or listen to the note for guidance. DREA ALPHONSO: To
record a voice note, open up the Keep mobile app. Click on the Microphone icon at
the bottom right of your screen and record your message. When you’re done talking, the
recording will automatically end and a new screen will pop
up with the text of your message and an audio file. TIM ANDERSON:
Google Keep is also a helpful tool for
capturing student thinking during a warm-up, exit
ticket, or brainstorm session. And later, when it’s time
to expand and formalize those ideas, it’s easy to
do so, since Keep is now integrated with Google Docs. DREA ALPHONSO: In Google Docs,
click Tools on the menu bar and then Keep Notepad. A sidebar will pop up with
all of your note options. You can scroll through the
list or use the search bar to jump right to
the note you need. Once you’ve found it, drag and
drop the note into your doc. We’ve also heard from
educators that they like to create drawings
with Google Keep to help students understand
concepts better with visuals– things like math diagrams and
flow charts for essay planning. TIM ANDERSON:
Additionally, educators can collaborate with colleagues
using shared Google Keep notes. And with the Google
Keep Chrome extension, they can easily save web
pages and images for reference and later use. DREA ALPHONSO:
That’s all the time we have for today
in “Edu in 90.” For more Google
tips and resources, check out the links below. TIM ANDERSON: And in
the comments below, let us know about creative
ways that you’ve used Google Keep in your school. We’ll see you next time. Check out our last
episode, where we look at Google for
Education privacy and security. And for more “Edu in 90,”

  1. Use Google Keep to give students feedback on their Google Docs and Google Slides! I suggest creating a label for each student and each assignment where you give feedback. That way, a teacher can filter to see all the feedback they have provided for a student or for an assignment to notice trends. https://youtu.be/06U3athv97I
