First, use the rubric to assess student projects.

You can customize the rubric as needed, depending on what you want to assess.

Then, check student responses on the end-of-lesson assessment to assess student learning.

Note any skills that students may need additional practice with in the future.

Next, think about what you feel went well in the lesson and what you might change for next time.

For example, you might decide to adapt the lesson in some way to better meet your curriculum needs.

Continue to plan learning opportunities for students to use the digital skills they practiced in the lesson.

You might assign one of the extensions that appear at the end of each lesson, Or move from a lesson like “Manage Your Time with Google Sheets,” To “Organize Group Projects in Google Sheets” to reinforce the same digital concepts.

Next, share your students’ work with the larger school community.

This might mean sharing a presentation they made with someone they appreciate.

Or sharing their work in a school newsletter or at a professional development meeting.
