There are several updates coming to Google Classroom this August. Teachers wishing to take advantage of these updates early can sign up in the article linked above.

New Features (Launching August 2018)

  • New Classwork Page (Top Picture)

    • Create and reuse assignments and questions in one location!
    • Organize the assignments and questions by grouping them into modules and units.
    •  Teachers can plan their curriculum for the semester by reordering work to match their class sequence.
This is an update that I (and many) have been waiting for in Google Classroom. With this update, teachers have the potential pre-build up a course and re-use it in future years without starting over. I am very excited to see how this update works.

  • Improved Stream Page

    • Stream is now the conversation center between students and teachers.
This makes a lot of sense, as I've long considered the stream to be like a social media feed., similar to Facebook. Important items, such as assignments, often get buried and difficult to find. Now that assignments are located elsewhere. This can be extremely useful.

  • Centralized People Page
  • Consolidated Settings
  • Create Locked Quizzes in Classroom

Re: Inside the School Where Every Student Gets Their Own Teacher Olivia is currently enrolled part-time in one of the most unique high school models in the country. Where many schools struggle with ever-expanding student-teacher ratios, Futures Academy, a California network of private schools serving middle- and high schoolers, follows a distinctly personalized model: Every class in every subject has one teacher and only one student. The model takes an eyebrow-raising twist on one-to-one instruction, which in many education circles has come to refer to one computer for every student. This sounds like a discussion I have had many times with other educators when talking about school models and how to improve schools. "What if every student had their own teacher?" It is an intriguing idea that, on the surface, sounds like the ideal learning environment. However, most times I have discussed this, the conversation usually ends up saying t
