How I Use It
I am with a GAFE school where each student is assigned an email. I would assign students classwork, both individual and group assignments and/or projects. Students can use Google Classroom at school or at home. Communication is effective, comments can be made on assignments. Speedy way of grading. Also, reduces the amount of paper used.
Google Classroom isn't perfect yet, students can use Doc, Sheets, and Slides, all free at a GAFE school. Can be difficult to use for special needs students and ELL students.
