Google Classroom: Take Learning Beyond Classroom Walls!

Google Classroom: Take Learning Beyond Classroom Walls!

As we move from the digital world to the paper world through the virtual world, we should consider making a decision that will not only be helpful to students but will make teaching life of teachers easier.
All options are available in front of us, but the most important is that we build a digital classroom that makes all types of resources available to students anytime, anywhere.
Today, education is not limited to only four walls. Students are also teaching outside the classroom. From parents who help students to do homework, extra-curricular activity, field trips, and more, from which students can learn in many ways beyond the walls.
This is why today we will talk about a feature of Google, in which teachers will be able to motivate students to learn, regardless of the place or time.

Google Classroom is a free web service for schools, non-profits, and any teacher who has a Google account. Google Classroom makes it easy for learners and instructors to connect in and out of schools.
Google Classroom helps teachers save time, keep the class organized, and improve communication with students.
