What is Google Classroom?
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. Teachers can also add a co-teacher to create and manage assignments. Students using Classroom have access to an assignments page so they can easily see due dates, stay organized, and submit work on time.
Using the Classroom app on Android and iOS, teachers and students can work on the go. Students can attach photos, files, images, and links to Classroom assignments. Offline caching allows access to Classroom assignments without an Internet connection for those with limited or no connectivity at home.
