New features in Google Classroom

  1. Google Forms- When you assign a Google Form as an assignment in Google Classroom, it will now show you the results with one click within Google Classroom. It will also mark the assignment done once the students fill out the form. You can add the Google Form as an Announcement, but it will not mark the assignments done when completed.  Screenshot 2015-10-28 at 9.40.23 AM.png
  2. Google Calendar- Each class in Google Classroom now has its own calendar. It’s not in an obvious location when you go into your classes. You will need to click on the Classroom Menu on the top left corner classroom4.png

and then select Calendar. classroom 2.pngClick on the Classroom Menu to filter the calendar by class. If you go to calendar.google.com you will also see the calendar. If you have more than one class, you will see a different color for each class. The calendar will automatically add assignments as you add them to your Google Classroom. It saves you an additional step if you were using Google Calendar to keep students informed of upcoming assignments.
