Classroom 101 Benefits

Less time and paper— Teachers can manage assignments quickly, all in one place.

Better organization—Students can see assignments on the Work page, in the class stream, or on the class calendar. All class materials are automatically filed into Google Drive folders.

Works with apps you use—Classroom works with Google Docs, Calendar, Gmail, Drive, and Forms.
