Overall Satisfaction with Google Classroom

Most of the teachers at my public high school are using Google classroom to "stay with the times." Google classroom reduces paper clutter, allows students to always stay 'in touch' with their teachers by easily being able to access the material, links, ask questions, and post work. It is a FANTASTIC tool for English teachers because it solves the problem of the missing assignment; once work is posted, it is easily viewable. Additionally, in classes that are co-taught, every instructor is allowed to view the students' work, which would not be possible if there was only 1 copy of the task.
  • Google Classroom sends reminders to students when work is due
  • Google Classroom allows students to respond to one another when you post a question for the community
  • The service allows students to access materials that were posted last week or last month. If a student has lost the assignment or a handout, it will forever be accessible online.
  • The grading option is not great; I would love it if Google Classroom was linked to a user-friendly, easy to establish grade book.
  • I loathe how when students submit writing assignments to me, I become the "owner" of the document and they have to request access to edit the writing that they created!
  • I wish that there was a discussion template that looked more like Blackboard. It would be nice if there were tabs for materials, discussions, assignments and grade book at the top of the Classroom home page.
  • From the first semester and year that I implemented Google Classroom, students provided feedback that indicated that they were happy that this tool was made available to them, as it improved their accessibility to course material and solved the issue of not being able to print work out (now it could be submitted online only).
For classroom teachers, it is ACES. Even if an instructor is using it just as a repository for student work it's fantastic. Google Classroom can aid you in becoming a paperless classroom or just reducing some of the copies that you are making. If YouTube is blocked in your school, you can post links for students to view at home (or on their phones). Google classroom can help high school or college level teachers keep their learning environments ORGANIZED.
