2015 Google Classroom updated to help teachers manage the creation and collection of student assignments in a paperless environment, basically leveraging the framework of Google Docs, Drive and other Apps. Google classroom allows teachers to spend more time with their students and less time on the paperwork, and it is now even better. Google's latest announcement brings new functionality to Google Classroom. Included in the new functionality is the ability to add more than one teacher, as well as to preparing for classes in advance as well.
Google Classroom can help students to keep their files more organized because all their work can be stored paperlessly in a single program, Faculty can more quickly identify which students may be struggling with their assignments due to the tracking mechanisms associated with assigned tasks. Grading processes can be simplified because of the grading features associated with student submissions.
And early 2018 October Google announced the roll out of a whole new Google classroom suite of devices, and was also updating its tools for educators, it has been published in their official blog (https://www.blog.google/outreach-initiatives/education/mobile-apps-mobile-teachers-classroom/) , by Classroom product manager Lisa Wang outlines a new system to encourage engagement from students in class. Student Selector is, essentially, a way to randomly select kids to answer a question rather than waiting for hands to go into the air.
All a teacher has to do is hit the feature, which is only currently available on Android devices, and it'll pick a kid for them to pick on. Teachers can then either ask them to speak up, ask the app to call on them later or mark them as absent if they're not in class that day. Wang says that the selector gives "all students a fair chance" to answer questions and keeps track of who isn't participating.
