Google Classroom allows for a platform for teachers and students to interact via posting assignments, engaging in academic dialogue, and providing feedback to one another.
When students log on, they see a snapshot view of upcoming homework assignments, teacher announcements, student questions, and other important class information. Students can submit their work directly through Google Classroom, and teachers can provide feedback, assign grades, and return the work. All your child’s work stays organised and conveniently stored on Google Drive. Assignments are even automatically added to the Google Calendar based on their due dates. Essentially, the Google Classroom is where all your child’s schoolwork is created, exchanged, and stored.
