Technology moves quickly. It only seems like yesterday, everyone wanted an Interactive Whiteboard. Next there were slates, wireless mice, visualisers, netbooks and, most recently, tablets. The iPad, Android tablets and Microsoft Surface haven't had the same impact as Interactive Whiteboards but ...

HUGE LAUNCH TODAY FOR BACK TO SCHOOL!

Google Classroom has seen a lot of feedback from teachers, administrators, and students over the past year.  Thanks to your ideas and comments, we’ve made huge changes that should make managing your classroom even easier to manage this Fall!

Today, we’re excited to announce the following features, which will be available today!

*Stream UI - There is a new redesign for the Stream and how to create Stream items.
*Reuse posts - Teachers now have the ability to reuse previous Stream posts (assignments and announcements) in their current classes.
*Move to top - Teachers will have the ability to move a Stream item to the top of their Stream.
*Due Date - New UI to set a Due Date and now teachers have the option to not have a due date.
*Short answer questions - Teachers now have the ability to ask an open-ended short answer question to their class. Additionally, teachers can customize the settings for each question to allow students to comment on each other’s responses

We’re also excited to announce two features that will be coming in the next few weeks!  Don’t worry about making a classroom calendar with assignments and due dates.  Google Classroom will soon have Google Calendar integration!  You can also add trips and days off to your calendar.  This will also allow students to see all their assignments on their own personal Google Calendar if they so choose.   Many teachers have been using Google Forms as an easy way to assign a test, quiz or survey to the class. Coming in the next few weeks, teachers and students will soon be able to attach Google Forms from Drive to posts and assignments, and get a link in Classroom to easily view the answers.

Please continue to send feedback to classroom!  The feedback button is now located in the bottom left hand corner of classroom.  We want to hear from you!

I was wondering how students could view comments made by other students? They seem to be unable to view comments when using their smart phone.  The name of the student takes up the entire screen and cannot read the comment. Help?

I just ordered a Chromebox for behind the TV - since 90% of what I do is on the browser anyway

We've used Brady Landscaping for the last few years and they are always friendly and do a great job. Ian and his team have not only handled lawn care but have done landscaping, snow removal, and more for us. In all areas, these guys do great work. We recommend them without reservation.
