Google Classroom Chrome App, How Google Glass Is Being Used In Classrooms, and More



As of August 11, 2014, Google is starting to open Classroom to all Google Apps for Education users, helping teachers spend more time teaching and less time shuffling papers. Shared by +Allison Mollica 


Classroom is a new tool in Google Apps for Education that helps teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and easily communicate with their classes. Classroom helps students organize their work in Google Drive, complete and turn it in, and communicate directly with their teachers and peers. Thank you +Sarah Woods for sharing this tool.
