How I Use It
As the Tech Teacher / Tech Coordinator it can be a difficult job getting all teachers onboard one ed-tech resource and Google is so deep and complex there are still challenges here but if you can set time aside upfront this tool does wondrous things. Classroom teachers can use this tool to collaborate with all their students and have students interact with each other. Also can be very helpful in the area of homework.
My Take
All teachers are over burdened and this tool makes classrooms more integrated in a way that can really free up a teacher from the paperwork burden. By pulling every student into this digital classroom engagement goes way up. Here's the downside: All Google is work intensive, especially up front. You'll have to take time out of the already booked schedule to learn all the aspects of this tool and to bring all your students to a place where they know how to use this tool in a productive and respectful way.
