Google Apps for Education

Google Calendar

Calendar integration with Google Classroom has finally arrived! This latest update automatically creates a Calendar for each Classroom which can then be made public and embedded into a website or blog. So what does this mean? It solves the dilemma "but parents can't access Classroom!" Teachers can simply share the calendar and parents will be able to subscribe to these calendars and see every Classroom assignment that is due. Teachers can also manually add events such as field trips, guest speakers, assemblies, etc. to Classroom Calendars so that parents can view not only assignments, but all Classroom events!
