- Google Classroom helps teachers create, assign, and collect student classwork and homework paperlessly. With Google Classroom, teachers can seamlessly integrate Google Docs, Google Drive, and Gmail to create assignments, provide feedback for in progress and completed work, and communicate with their students directly and with whole class announcements--all without using a single piece of paper. Students can work on assignments in Google Docs and turn it in with a few clicks.
- The Google Docs Suite is a set of productivity tools that includes the ability to create, edit, share, and collaborate, anytime, anywhere — using a computer, tablet, or mobile device. Documents, spreadsheets, and presentations can be accessed and edited offline or online and shared to one or to many.
- Gmail is an online communications hub with world class email, text and voice chat, one-on-one video conferencing, and a directory of contacts. You can use Gmail from any computer, tablet or phone - both online and offline. Google Apps for Education Gmail includes custom email addresses to match your school branding, plenty of storage, no ads, and administrative controls to allow students to safely communicate - inside or outside a school domain - all for free.
- Google Calendar helps you keep track of appointments and events — at school and on the go. Create calendars for your school or classroom, and share them with colleagues, students, and your community. Google Calendar integrates with Gmail and is compatible with popular calendar applications.
