If you take a look on the Internet, you'll be able to read plenty of opinions about Google Classroom, the search engine company's service that intends to simplify the communication in classrooms and improve the workflow of teachers and students. How it works is very simple, which is one of the reasons why the app is so successful, together with its price, as you only need to log in with your username and input a code to join a classroom.
That's if you're a student because if you're a teacher, you will create the classroom yourself and invite your students to join: you can do so by means of their email or sending them the above-mentioned code that will be automatically generated.
Improved communications in the educational field
It's an intuitive and easy-to-use app, in which teachers and students will be in contact with communications flowing in both directions, both publicly and privately. In other words, you can set out and organize tasks in public, with comments and debates revolving around the latter, but in turn, you can also hold private conversations to check and assess tasks individually.
The academic relationship between teachers and students becomes more fluid.
The main functions of this app for schools can be summarized in the following list:
- Simple configuration.
- Optimization of time and resources (waste less paper).
- Improved organization since all the documents and materials will be available from the same place (all sorts of files, both documents as well as photos and videos).
- Collective and individual communications between teachers and students.
The application stands out for how intuitive its interface and functioning are. Although if you find it complicated you can always resort to manuals and tutorials available in both PDF and on video on YouTube.
