Dina Kachintseva, Google Classroom Software Engineer, and Felix Wang, User Experience Designer, emphasized that the participation of parents and guardians in students’ education has a vital impact that cannot be compensated for inside the classrooms. As they noted, the learning process in the academic institution is just the “tip of the iceberg”.

To have a real-time update about how the students are doing in every class, parents and guardians can automatically be notified about the summaries of the students’ respective work via email. The teachers can choose to send updates to the parents or guardians of their students daily or weekly. While students may not be the biggest fans of the idea, it is nonetheless an optional feature.

The new Google Classroom now enables students and teachers to collaboratively annotate documents. It really comes handy for both parties as it is now made more convenient to accomplish tasks. Specifically, teachers can easily mark-up submissions (i.e. homework, projects, etc.) using red markers while students can conveniently sketch graphs— all these things can be done with just their handheld devices on hand.
