The Google Classroom iPhone app can help students and teachers continue their paperless workflow while on the go or hanging out on the couch at home. There are so many ways that the Google Classroom iPhone app can transform mobile learning. Here are three to start out with.......
1. NEW UPDATE: Turn on the notification feature to receive alerts on your iPhone when new content is posted in a class.
2. VIRTUAL PHOTO JOURNAL: Instead of having students take notes in a packet while on a class trip, provide an opportunity to snap pictures and upload to Classroom.
3. BLOG POST OF THE WEEK PLC: Create a class that staff members can be apart of. When relevant blog posts are found online staff members can submit on the Google Form that is housed on the Classroom page. Then staff members can vote on the blog they wish to discuss the following week. The blog post is posted and discussed by staff virtually. Great way to reflect, learn, and share.
