Wow – it’s been less one year since Google Classroom came out and already it has taken classrooms everywhere by storm. With the addition of some great updates – Classroom is becoming not only wildly popular but a really easy way both get started with Google Drive and organize your classes for the power users.
Now Google is making updates to the mobile app – and teachers everywhere will be able to keep up with their classes no matter where they are located. So, if Hawaii is calling you for Memorial Day…don’t worry you can check student work from your phone – while getting your dose of mood boosting – Vitamin D and listening to the waves crash in the background.
Three things you can do from your mobile device:
- You can now grade assignments which includes the ability to add private feedback. I know when I am grading homework from the beach – I am always much nicer and a little more lenient. So if you really do make it to Hawaii this would be a good thing to try from your lounge chair.
- Create and edit assignments on the go, including the ability to make a copy for every student.
- Create a post or assignment by taking a photo. This will be great for taking a photo and having students write a creative writing response…or asking what scientific theory made a certain photo possible.
