Students who have trouble sending in their homework and assignments on time might be interested in a new Google Classroom application that has been created by the search giant to enable students to send in school assignments from their smartphones.
The new Classroom app has been launched this week for both iOS and Android smartphones and is available to download to help teachers and students connect from wherever they may be, as well as saving precious paper and time.
At the same time as launching their new Classroom application Google has also launched two new features to help teachers stay organised, with the launch of a teacher assignments page and the ability to archive classes. Within the new Classroom mobile app, students and teachers can:
– Snap a photo: Right from the assignment page in the mobile app, students can snap a photo and attach it to their assignment — whether it’s the experiment they just did for a science class, or a drawing they made of their family tree. And if they’ve forgotten their homework, they can ask someone at home to snap a photo, text it and then turn it in with the app. Of course, if the dog has actually eaten it, Classroom can’t help you.
– Share from other apps: Students can also easily attach images, PDFs and web pages from other apps to their assignments. For example, when you’re in a drawing app, you can create a graphic for an assignment. When you click “share” in that app, Classroom will come up as an option, and you can attach the graphic to an assignment.
