Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Google is offering help once again to parents, teachers and students for back to school. Google’s Peter Du says parents and kids have been busy searching for the usual school supplies and clothing. But there is organizational help too…
“A tool we love to use is Google Classroom. Obviously from the teacher’s standpoint you can configure it to say here are the lessons, here’s where you turn in your assignments. From a student’s standpoint you can also use it to just keep yourself on track. You can look at your calendar and see when things are due, you can turn in your homework. You can actually even do something called practice sets.. What it is is sort of interactive practice problems.”
You can find more info at www.Google.com/edu. The Education Fundamentals edition is free for qualifying institutions…and upgraded editions are available as well.
