Google Classroom Gets an Update

Google is making Classroom even more fun and personal by making these fun changes.

1. Say Cheese!
You can now upload your own images to Classroom to use as a unique class theme. Classroom will now help you crop the image and then pick a matching class color. If you don't have a great picture you would like to use, they have added some additional images and patterns to help make your classroom more personalized.

What does this mean for teachers? Make your class more personable by adding a class photo or action shot!

2. Quick Look
Users can now view the About page in the mobile apps (iOS and Android) for easy access to their class materials and resources. 

3. Create Away
Using the iPad App - students can now add images, videos, and any other files to assignments from other apps on the device. 

What does this mean for teachers? Students can make a screen cast on Explain Everything and upload it to turn in as an assignment.

4. Smiley Faces Unite!
  • Go emoji crazy because they are now available on the Android app.

What does this mean for teachers? If you haven't talked to your students about proper use of Emojis you might need to now.

5. Faster Speeds
  • Google made updates that will increase the speed of the app’s performance - making homework even easier to turn in on time :)
