What is Google Classroom?

Google Classroom is a suite of online tools that allows teachers to set assignments, have work submitted by students, to mark, and to return graded papers. It was created as a way to get eliminate paper in classes and to make digital learning possible. It was initially planned for use with laptops in schools, such as Chromebooks, in order to allow the teacher and students to more efficiently share information and assignments

As more schools have transitioned to online learning, Google Classroom has gotten far wider use as teachers quickly implement paperless instruction. Classrooms works with Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Sites, Earth, Calendar, and Gmail, and can be supplemented by Google Hangouts or Meet for face-to-face live teaching or questions.

What devices does Google Classroom work with?

Since Google Classroom is online-based, you can access it in some form from pretty much any device with a web browser. Processing is done at Google’s end mostly, so even older devices are able to handle most of Google’s resources. 

There are device specific apps for the likes of iOS and Android, while it also works on Mac, PC, and Chromebooks. A big advantage of Google is that on most devices it is possible to do work offline, uploading when a connection is found.

This all allows teachers and students to use Google Classroom since they can connect with it via any personal device

Google Classroom assignments

Google Classroom has a lot of options but, more importantly, it can allow teachers to do more to help educate students remotely or in hybrid settings. A teacher is able to set assignments and then upload documents that explain what is required for completion, and also provide extra information and a place for students to actually work.

Since students receive an email notification when an assignment is waiting, it’s very easy to maintain a schedule without the teacher having to repeatedly contact the students. Since these assignments can be designated ahead of time, and set to go out when the teacher wants, it makes for advanced lesson planning and more flexible time management.

When a task is finished, the student can turn it in for the teacher to grade. Teachers can then provide annotations and feedback for the student.

Google Classroom also allows for the export of grades into a student information system (SIS) making it far easier to use automatically school-wide.

Google offers an originality report feature that lets teachers run a check against other student submissions from the same school. A great way to avoid plagiarism.

Google Classroom announcements

Teachers can make announcements that go out to the entire class. These can appear on the home screen of the Google Classroom where the students will see it the next time they log in. A message can also be sent out as an email so that everyone will receive it at a certain time. Or it can be sent to individuals who it applies to specifically. 

An announcement can have more rich media added with attachments from the likes of YouTube and Google Drive. 

Any announcement can be set to either remain like a noticeboard statement, or it can be adjusted to allow for two-way communication from students.
