Comments on Google Classroom in 2021

“easy to share learning materials for students and track their progress” Caroline, teacher, Malaysia

“Google Classroom is .. a very student-friendly way of communicating everything you need in the classroom. You can also allow students to have certain permissions so they cannot take over your mainstream and blog. I like to use this part for announcements and posting links to helpful videos or Google Slides. The assignments tab also keeps everything in order for students to view. It is sort of an all-in-one place for your classroom online.” Darren Vance, Middle School Math Teacher, USA

“Keeps all assignments, resources, etc. in a one convenient place for students to be able to reference” Ben Martinez, K12 teacher, USA

“This has been a game changer in the world of education. It makes collecting assignments and grading papers much more efficient, especially writing and language assignments. Instead of having 60 assignments floating around in my email, they are all in the right place and I can see who has turned things in and the live progress they have made on the assignment. I love how I can push out links to websites and articles quickly and easily, and feedback among students is a great feature to have available too.” Librarian, 2020
