I will never ever have to hear the infamous student excuses of:
1. Miss, I forgot my homework on the kitchen table,
2. My dog ate it, or
3. I left my notebook in class, and now it is missing!
Google classroom centralizes all info, assignments, helps all students with time management and organizational skills. Furthermore, my ICT gen ed counterpart has access, including parents, which provides sustained accountability throughout the school year. Not only can you see when students turned in their work, but when they first accessed and/or edited their work.
