If you are FINISHED creating your Google Creations (Virtual Classroom, Class App, etc) and you are ready to PUBLISH them, this post is for you!!!
The FINAL and MOST IMPORTANT thing to do is to SHARE your finished Google Creation so that your students can use it!! There are a few ways to do this. You can download it as a PDF (the links will all still work! Yay! And students will not be able to Move anything around, which is also a BIG YAY!!). File (pink), Download (purple) then PDF Document (.pdf) (blue).
Then you’ll just post it on your Google Classroom as a PDF attachment, right on the Stream OR you can post it in Classwork using the Add FILE option.
OR you can Publish it to the web: File (green), Publish to the web (yellow), a screen will pop up, click Publish (Orange).
Then it will ask you again: Are you sure you want to publish this selection? Click OK (pink) then it will go back to a similar screen as before titled: Publish to the web. Make sure to Copy the link (purple).
Then you are able to post the link in Google Classroom on your Stream, or Classwork, this time using the Add LINK. It will then open a new Tab, with the Clickable Virtual Classroom that you created! (But you can also post this link in your ClassDojo, you can email it, text it, etc to get it to your parents/students! That is the AWESOME part of publishing it this way!)
I prefer this method because it allows you to continue to adjust and make changes to your Virtual Classroom and because it is published to the web it will UPDATE the link every time you make a change. That way you aren’t constantly downloading new PDFs of your classroom to post! Here is one I did for the color RED (day 2 of Kindergarten). It will open up in a new tab, and you can venture around my room, even if I continue to add things, it will automatically update without having to change the link!
Good Luck on your all Virtual Classroom Projects and if you have any questions, or tips please leave a comment below! Thank you!!!
