Classroom is a free service for schools, non-profits, and anyone with a personal Google account. Classroom makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect—inside and outside of schools. Classroom saves time and paper, and makes it easy to create classes, distribute assignments, communicate, and stay organized. Classroom is designed to help teachers create, collect, and grade assignments paperlessly, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google Document for each student. It also creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student to help keep everyone organized. Students can keep track of what’s due on the Assignments page and begin working with just a click. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom. With the mobile app for iOS, students and teachers can view their classes and communicate with their classmates in real time. Students can open their assignments and work on them right from their iPhone or iPad. Teachers can keep track of who has turned in work and grade the assignment - at school or on the go. Students and teachers receive notifications when they have new content in Classroom, so they are always up to date. There are many benefits of using Classroom: Easy to set up Teachers can add students directly or share a code with their class to join. It takes just minutes to set up. Saves time The simple, paperless assignment workflow allows teachers to create, review, and grade assignments quickly, all in one place. Improves organization Students can see all of their assignments on an assignments page, and all class materials (e.g., documents, photos, and videos) are automatically filed into folders in Google Drive. Enhances communication Classroom allows teachers to send announcements and start class discussions instantly. Students can share resources with each other or provide answers to questions on the stream. Affordable and secure Like the rest of G Suite for Education services, Classroom contains no ads, never uses your content or student data for advertising purposes, and is free. Permissions Notice: Camera: Needed to allow the user to take photos or videos and post them to Classroom. Microphone: Needed to enable audio capture for recording videos to be posted to Classroom. Photos: Needed to allow the user to attach photos or videos to Classroom. Photos or videos posted to Classroom will be stored on Google servers in order to show them in Classroom.
Google classroom was chosen after my school switched programs. However it is much worse. The app glitches you out while working on a document and you have to start over without it saving. Also you aren’t allowed to insert pages or have a wide variety of you own colors or have your own pen size without it being preset. The app glitches and crashes you out without saving and you can’t even change class icons to the way the student wants. Please fix
You cannot work on something for more than 15 minutes without it freezing, quitting you out of the app and making you lose all of the progress you had just done up until your last save.
It helps out kids a lot. The kids can go on to the app and then do there work on tablet. Then you just need to join a class or a few. It is a really simple app but a great way to learn. 🤩
I would definitely recommend it because our use this for my students and they actually love it I love how you manage things
Every time I push x at the end of class teachers say it will save it but it deletes your progress on a test so unless you fix it I use edulastic!
I am a high school teacher and honestly this app is very bad. Very buggy and poor design
Ever since google added the “class work” section, it’s been more confusing. It was better with just one page and it had a check mark next to your completed activities. Now there is no way to see if you completed the activity, unless you tap on each separate assignment and see if it says “completed” or not. It was much better before the “class work” page. I don’t use it anymore, because of that. The class work page is annoying. It’s like having your main stream show up twice. And it doesn’t show you right there if your activity is completed or not. There’s no excuse because it used to have a green check mark, and you took away that simple convenience. When you first introduced the “class work” page, you allowed us to not use it if we didn’t want to use it and use it the original way. Now you make us use the class work page.
There were lots of comment bout glitches but its good in mine. This app is a requirement for my class as a student... Keep it up creators!
I had to get this app so I could access my homework and it is so laggy I could not get my app to load and I had to call a friend. But over all when it works it’s a good app
