Cheap, but very limited

I used it as a teacher with my middle school students. I don't see it working for preschool or elementary, unless you add the parents as students as well. Parents need to create a Google account to be able to access the information from the newsletter/summary they get. Students don't really get a grade book, but they can see grades for each assignment. Needs a lot of work still.

Pros

Very easy to use and figure out. Students have access to information you want them to get at a low cost.

Cons

Parents don't have access to monitoring other than receiving a weekly or monthly email that says any upcoming or pending assignments, but they don't have access to see anything other than the title of the assignment. Does not link to Turn it in. They are constantly working on improving the platform, but it still lacks a lot of work/improvements.

Your online schooling tools available in Google

Pros

I use it when i conduct trainings of agents and English Instructors. It is very easy to use and you can share files easily. Each class has its unique id and students can access the class and agenda just by typing the class id when they log in. You can interact with students through the messaging feature. They can access all books and lessons which can be uploaded and downloaded which is helpful instead of send them per student. If there is an update and reminders, no need to inform each, all students an view this in Google Classroom.

Cons

I was hoping i can interact with them more by hearing their voice and inputs too but i need to use another platform for that.

I like it but...

Overall great for what we can use it for. Because we were told we would have full functionality, and later to find out that only applied to schools, not non-profit religious (which is an education space, but not according to google) we can't use all the pieces and must still use email for a lot of things. I suppose if we were a regular school it would be different.

Pros

It's great to put a classroom together on this platform. We previously used yahoo groups... which is basically asking people to visit a desert island as Yahoo is just about obsolete. Gmail dominates this game in my opinion, but...

Cons

They upsold this platform to the organization that I am going to school in, a spiritual non-profit; and because they are a spiritual non-profit they didn't receive all of the classroom benefits. We lost so much functionality. BE CAREFUL in reading and getting what you want or you may be sold short.

Classroom with very stability.

Pros

What I like best about Google Classroom is firstly the ease with which you can create a meeting room in order to communicate with a certain group of people, it is something that favors an audience exponentially. The organization of Classroom generates controversy, since it gives confidence to the user.

Cons

I think that in this platform it is necessary to improve some things, such as the bandwidth that consumes a group session, and the difficulty that is presented when trying to create a Classrooom in mobile devices, is something complex and many people fail to do it.

Google Clasroom excellent for teaching.

Pros

Since I experimented with Google Clasroom I realized that it is a multifunctional platform, where you can do live classes, and at the same time make forms that help understanding the class, it is a very varied platform that gives a lot to talk about.

Cons

I would like Google Clasroom to be more organized, since in many occasions the functions that it has, you have to look for them too much, and you lose a lot of time, I would like the most important ones to focus on the main page of the platform.

Go paperless with Google Classrooom

Going paperless with Google Classroom is great. The transition isn't difficult but you have to get used to the entire Google ecosystem.

Pros

Google Classroom encourages paperless system.
Sharing documents and resources to students are guaranteed easier.
It offers instructions to guide you through the whole process.

Cons

You can't use personal Gmail accounts for every student. You have to create a new account for each one of them.
For now, you'll be limited to Google Apps like Google Sheets, Google Docs, etc.

Classroom, an easy way to keep track of assignments.

Pros

I love how easy it is to create a classroom server and post assignments, set due dates, and grade work.

Cons

I do not like that this program has a limited variety of platforms that it supports for turning in work. Luckily, if it is online, you can submit a link instead.

Incredible Collaborative Space on Google Classroom

Excellent product for educational environments!

We love Google Classroom for our educators and students.

Cons

None. Thank you! We love this product. It enables teachers to easily share documents of relevance to the classroom with ease of access.

Best Idea ever!!!!

My son can no longer say he forgot his homework. Love this and I hope to see all schools using it soon.

Pros

Access from any computer, tablet or smartphone. Easy for parents to communicate with teachers, be more involved and see the progress as time passes and not just a report card.

Cons

Nothing negative to say. This was such a great idea and a good way to ensure homework is being done.

Pros

+ Simple and easy to understand this interface, the integration with Google Apps (such as Docs and Slides) gives a competitive advantage.

Cons

The customizable notifications seem to be useful (not so easy), the user interface is too simple, bored, Also, I would like to be able to schedule a task to publish in several classrooms in different periods of time
