Pandemic Education and Google Classroom

  • Kok Kean Hin

Abstract

:  Teacher trainees attended their online lesson during pandemic Covid-19. The survey was conducted to identify the efficiency of Google Classroom as a teaching tool. The 40 teacher trainees from a teacher education institute in Klang Valley was selected as the samples. They gave their responses in the question via Google Form. Results showed that teacher trainees agreed that Google Classroom was an effective tool for online learning. However, 52.5% of them faced limited internet access. While there were various constraints in online learning, teacher trainees have to accept the new norm of learning online and gradually move to personalized learning.
