Every student at Saint Ann School from second grade to eighth grade is provided a Google Chromebook. Kindergarten and first graders are provided Apple Ipads. Every student has their own username and password, teaching them both device and internet security.
What is Google Classroom?
Google Classroom is your mission control for class. Create classes, distribute assignments, send feedback, and see everything in one place. Instant. Paperless. Easy.
Google Classroom ties Google's many services together to help educational institutions go to a paperless system. Assignment creation and distribution is accomplished through Google Drive, while Gmail is used to provide classroom communication.
Students are invited to classrooms through the institution's database, through a private code that is added in the student interface.
Google Classroom integrates with students' and teachers' Google Calendar.
Each class created with Google Classroom creates a separate folder in the respective Google service where the student submits work to be graded by a teacher.
Communication through Gmail allows teachers to make announcements and ask questions to their students in each of their classes. Teachers can add students directly from the Google Apps directory or can provide a code that ise entered for access to the class by students.
In contrast to Google's regular services, Google Classroom does not show any ads in its interface for students, faculty, and teachers, and user data is not scanned or used for advertising purposes.
Saint Ann School students with the use of Google Classroom in the Elementary and Middle School classrooms are given an advantage by using the same technology that is being utilized at the local High School in Ridgecrest.
