Educators, the Google Classroom app is now available on Android and iOS mobile devices. A few of the school web sites I developed using WordPress are integrated with Google Docs & Google Drive. For example they can insert a photo in their blog directly from their Google Drive within WordPress. Teachers & Administrators, be sure to download the latest update on Google Classroom‘s web site or on your iDevice/Android. Documentation just got a lot easier.
“Google Classroom helps teachers create, assign, and collect student classwork and homework paperlessly. With Google Classroom, teachers can seamlessly integrate Google Docs, Google Drive, and Gmail to create assignments, provide feedback for in progress and completed work, and communicate with their students directly and with whole class announcements–all without using a single piece of paper. Students can work on assignments in Google Docs and turn it in with a few clicks.
When teachers create assignments, folders are automatically created in Google Drive for each student. They can choose to share a single document (like project instructions), or automatically make a copy for each student (like a project template). They can see who has completed the work at a glance and assign grades. Students can easily see due dates on their assignments page, so they can stay organized and submit work on time.”
