Welcome to Ufront Media Insights;
Today I had the opportunity interview Christin Frodella who is the Head of Global Education Marketing for Google. She spoke to me about Google’s new platform called Google Classroom. Google Classroom is a new tool coming to Google Apps for Education.
Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease.
It lets students organize their work, complete and turn it in, and communicate directly with their teachers and peers. Classroom was designed hand-in-hand with teachers to help them save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students.
Classroom helps teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. When teachers create assignments, they can choose to share a single document, or automatically make a copy for each student. They can quickly see who has or hasn’t completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback.
Classroom automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can easily see what’s due on their Assignments page, so they can stay on top of their work. Classroom also lets teachers make announcements and pose questions—improving communication inside and outside of class.
So sit back and watch my exclusive video interview and stay tuned for more one on one interviews on Ufront Media Insights.
