Through Google Classroom students are able to take our physical room to cyberspace and access it from any internet connection on the planet. Speaking of planet... Google Earth will allow your students to complete any map exercise, locate key cities on any continent or just have fun finding their own house. Its 3-D and a lot of fun. Google Apps include several web based programs that make things very easy. Google has essentially found a way to provide thousands of dollars worth of programs for free. This means that students can write a paper using Google Docs, prepare a presentation using Google Slides, work on a spread sheet using Google Sheets, compose art work using Google Drawings, etc. The best part is that all they need for this are their school provided Google credentials.
