As I was reading Free Tech 4 Teachers, written by the wonderful Richard Byrne, I learned about new features that have FINALLY been added to Google Classroom!
Has Google finally added all of the features I and so many other teachers desperately want? Sadly, no.
However, some really great changes have finally been made!
- Teachers can finally choose if their students names will be displayed “First Name, Last Name” or “Last Name, First Name!!” This will make entering student grades SO much easier. (If you would like specific instructions on this, please click here)
- Teachers can mute students in the “stream” and can even see deleted posts
- Teachers can choose to download a single assignment or all assignments, making exporting data extremely easy
I’m still patiently waiting for Google to add…
- A Co-Teacher option
- A discussion board feature
- A testing option
Hopefully, Google will add these and other important features to Classroom soon!
