Comments from some of those who selected Google Classroom as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2016

“I use Google Classroom with every class at every level as the primary online resource for my students. I post electronic copies of all resources, links to videos that we view in class, and announcements about upcoming quizzes, concerts, or other events. At our middle school students check Google Classroom for all of their classes during the first 5 minutes of their school day, and they are all given instructions on how to access it outside the school. It also provides students with an additional line of communication with me if they are struggling with a concept, but may not want to ask a question during class.” Chris Johnson, Primary/Secondary (K12) teacher, USA
