Our district is taking baby steps towards using Google Classroom, and I thought it would be a good time to begin a related “Best” list.

Classroom adapts for the future of learning and teaching is from Google. This news looks particularly interesting/useful, though I’m not sure if our district’s version would support it:

Classroom add-ons: Coming to beta later this year for districts with the Teaching and Learning Upgrade or Education Plus, Classroom add-ons allow you to bring your favorite content and activities from top edtech tools right inside Classroom. Admins will be able to pre-install add-ons for multiple teachers or groups at once.

We’re starting with nine partners including Adobe Spark for Education, BookWidgets, CK-12 Foundation, Edpuzzle, IXL, Kahoot!, Nearpod, Newsela and SAFARI Montage, with plans to expand to many more. Here’s an example of how Bookwidgets is using add-ons to make it easier for teachers to assign an activity and students to complete it, without ever leaving Classroom.
