Google Classroom made some adjustments this week – you should see a pop-up that sends you an alert when you visit the site. The most notable involve the Classwork page.
There’s now a category called “Materials” that allows you to post and organize class resources – taking the place of the dearly departed “About” page, I guess.
In addition, Classroom sites that were created before the changes that occurred over the summer now have the option to add a “Classwork” page.
Read about the rest of the updates – and see what’s to come – on the “What’s New in Classroom” site.
If both you and your students have the Share to Classroom extension, you can push websites to the whole class at once by simply clicking on it, then pasting in the site you’d like them to look at. (You can also do this using Hapara, FYI.) Students can also share websites with you – and the extension keeps track of who has shared what with whom!
Frustrated that in order to assign something to one student in Google Classroom, you need to assign it to the entire class? That’s been fixed. Google Classroom just announced this new differentiation feature – read about it here, or watch the quick walk through below!
