Do you know the Google Classroom? Here is a description of the service:
Google Classroom is available to anyone using Google Apps for Education, a free suite of productivity tools that includes Gmail, Google Drive and Google Docs.
Classroom, designed to help teachers create and receive assignments without using paper, includes time-saving features, such as the ability to make a copy of a Google Document automatically for each student. It also automatically creates Google Drive folders for each assignment and each student, helping with organization.
Students can see the tasks that need to be done on the “Tasks” page and start working with just one click. Teachers quickly see who completed the assignment and provide direct, real-time feedback from Google Classroom.
If you do not speak English, be sure to activate the subtitles of the video.
Cool, huh? A new tool is now available for educators and students. I speak of the application Google Classroom.
First of all important to make it clear that it can only be used by people who have a Google Apps account.
His idea is to allow students and teachers to see their respective classes and communicate in real time. Students can open and do assignments while teachers can control who delivered assignments and correct them at school (or on the way, all you need is an internet connection).
The initiative is very cool because it is something easy to set up, greatly improving the organization of both the teacher (who now has one concentrated place in one place) and students (who can view all the tasks that are still pending and save the teaching materials in folders organized in Google Drive).
In addition, communication (such as sending important announcements and questions to be asked) makes everything much easier. Also according to Google, the service does not contain advertisements, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes and is free for schools.
