How I Use It
Google Classroom is an extremely useful tool, it also serves to minimize usage of paper. Classroom is used to organize students, their work and build a virtual classroom . Every part of the lesson can be done here simultaneously by students and their work is saved in their google drive along with the teacher's google drive. It is especially productive for long essays and papers that require various edits. The teacher is able to suggest edits and return the paper to the student. Classroom allows you to grade the paper as well as set deadlines and due dates that wills top the students from handing late work. With the help of google apps, classroom can be used to create amazing projects and assignments. Because students have access to classroom from home via computer or app it is harder for absent students to miss both classwork and homework. Study materials can also be posted along with all supplemental materials.
I believe that classroom is an exceptional teaching tool, the one problem is accessibility for those students who absolutely do not have access to any devices. However in a setting where all or most students have accessibility it is amazing for keeping students accountable for their work. No more lost worksheets!
