We do not want to ruin your fun, but school is coming and there will be a lot of work to do. It seems that Google thought of this too as it announced some new features for its Google For Education program. The big company hopes it is going to help teachers and students and take learning beyond the classroom. The new feature is also helping the parents as they receive summaries on how their kid is doing in class.
How does this program work? First of all, parents need to be invited by the teacher into the Google Classroom. There they can see what is their child doing and also they can receive alerts with what events are going to take place at the school. If you are a student, you can use the app to show your homework or to write ideas that will help you for your next project. Students will also have the ability to annotate a document in different colors and pen tip sizes. The app will have also an eraser button to help undo mistakes or anything that you wrote on the app.
Google Expeditions has new features too. You can find there a new set of expeditions that give you more places to explore by using your smartphone. There is also a Cardboard viewer that can be used anytime you want. Google for Education is also helping you with a Gmail for the classroom. This way the teacher can send the information to all of his/hers students.
Google for Education is an app made by Google, which wanted to improve its image by helping teachers and students. We all know that not all the parents have a good opinion about google, as many children spend too many hours in front of their computers. The big search engine is trying to change their opinion by releasing this new features. This app is a free one and can be used by anyone who wants to improve the way they are learning.
Their goal is to create the best learning platform, which will help the teachers and the students too. Google is hoping that someday we will have a paperless educational system. The app can be used easily on any device that has iOS and Android. Students are able to get information about their homework even when there is no internet access.
