The Google Classroom Stream can easily get overlooked as most work is done within the Classwork tab. If you use the default settings, the Stream can be a very confusing place with assignment posts being included with class announcements. Not too long ago, I wrote a post showing you how to configure the Stream settings so only class announcements appear and assignment posts do not.
The Stream is simple, versatile tool for engaging students. The most common use is for class announcements. As seen below, type your announcement in the box.
These are just a few of the ways I like to engage students with the Google Classroom Stream. In what ways do you engage students with the Stream? If you have any questions and would like a follow up, contact me via Gmail or Chat at email@example.com.
