The tools span everything from music to time-saving shortcuts and supports for struggling students or those with learning disabilities.

No Old School for You! Google Classroom-Catch up on the new tools

No Old School for You! Google Classroom-Catch up on the new tools | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Posted by Will Phan, Google Classroom Software Engineer

As you gear up for the new school year, try the newest features in Google Classroom for more ways to save time, engage your students and keep everyone organized.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Remember the old School?  Google will give you a free 'new-school' with the usual strings attached. (Nothing is free folks).


Google classroom is still relatively primitive compared to open source power house programs like Moodle. Let's hope market competition gets the both paid and open source providers to step up their game.


Still if you are already a Google School, you need to be up on the newest changes.

Apple Classroom vs. Google Classroom

Apple Classroom vs. Google Classroom | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Apple Classroom was released in March 2016, but from things I read online, or hear when talking to other educators, I feel that it still gets mistakenly compared to Google Classroom. I can absolutely see why that happens. Both products have very similar names, and both were created to help solve technology problems in the classroom. However, the truth is, these two products could not be more different. So, in this post, I wanted to take some time to run through everything that Apple Classroom can do, and compare that to Google Classroom, in order to give you some ideas on how you can use these useful tech tools at your school.
