Kids can submit homework and share content in Classroom for Android, iOS

Google Chromebooks aren’t the only devices finding strong demand in the classroom; the company knows that kids and teachers have smartphones, too. On Wednesday, Google launched a Classroom app for both Android and iOS phones to further help reduce paper and bring new ways for educators and students to work together. Students snap photos from their phones and use Classroom to attach the images to homework assignments, for example.¬†Or if the homework was left at home, a parent or sibling can snap a photo of it for submission. Other objects can be shared as well within the app, making it easier to use PDFs, web pages and content in the classroom.
