How do I use Google Classroom?

I’ve been using Google Classroom in the classroom with students for 3 years. At first, there were few of us who dared to jump in. I’ve seen a lot more people using it lately.

In this way, you will be able to be connected with other teachers who also use them and we will be able to share doubts, experiences, improvements…
