How I Use It
I use Google Classroom daily with my students and have encouraged them to download the app onto their phones since the app was released. Initially because the app makes the user experience more fluid and pleasant. Recently I asked my students to take a picture of something in Roman numerals and convert it into Arabic numerals. The app allowed students to easily take and post the images using their phones.
My Take
The Google Classroom App translates into a great experience on a mobile device. I’ve been using Google Classroom with students since it first came out. The experience on a mobile website isn’t too bad, but I did find myself using tools like Ignition or TeamViewer to remote into my computer to get the full experience. By using the app users can allow notifications on their mobile device and post pictures and videos directly from their phone and tablet. Best of all the app is free and contains no ads. Tip: If you are using Google Classroom with your students you may also want to try the Google’s Share to Classroom Extension for Chrome. It allows you to push links directly to your students’ browsers.
