Google Classroom With Edu Much

google classroomGoogle Classroom was launched in 2012, and after some trouble with the beginning of it, it is now sailing smoothly. Relatively speaking. Some people are still not thrilled with providing Google with personal and academic information, and that is completely understandable.

On the other hand, Classroom has been a real help. It assists teachers, students, faculty, and any other member of the education field. It is a way to bring everything closer to home, and consolidate information in an effective way. Classroom took some heat at first, but soon afterwards Googe announced that it will not be extracting any personal information for the sake of ad placement.

This was a good thing, but I am not completely satisfied, personally. I know – know, without a doubt in my mind – that Google is making something, somehow, off of Classroom. And it is just a question of navigating the thing properly. Okay, so Classroom is up and running, and you hook everything up. BOOM. Your class is at your command. Pretty cool, to be honest.

Classroom was originally meant to be a way for managing academic work in a paperless way. This not only saves trees, time, and money, but it also makes it much more accessible. There is no way that such efficiency could have been so widespread before computers came along. No, sir. I don’t think so, anyway.

The platform was created as an app for android systems, and later, after it caught on, it was redesigned for other platform. Classroom is a hybrid of sorts, bringing together the worlds of older traditions and new technology. I feel it does a pretty good job at it, and the fact that anyone can now use it (as of March 2017, it became available for all users, including those with personal accounts) is the kicker.

Is there a risk involved here? Always. There is always sogoogle-classroom 1mething – something – which will make you think twice. I know that if I search long enough I will find it in anything. But, it is worth the risk, since Classroom is one of the best free tools out there. Its design is easy to use and a pleasure to work with. Google cares about education, at least to some extent, and it doesn’t hide that fact. To release such a grading and distribution software to the masses is a great step in the right direction. Or so I think.

Introducing technology to the classroom has been a sore point for many of my contemporaries. Some are vehemently against it, and I feel I know why. It is undoubtedly because they fear what they do not know. And that I cannot go with. I have seen how technology can really change a person and his or her future, so I am all for the advancement of technology in the classrooms. We need to use the tools which are at our disposal, and there is nothing wrong with that. It is not as if our old education system is in such good shape.

Ginger

Ginger just sort of appeared one day on his computer.

Jack Harrison was a 19 year old student at the University of Rhode Island. Like most other college students like him Jack sufferedkeep-calm-and-use-correct-grammar-2-resized-600 from grammatical difficulties. One morning though everything changed. Jack, while using his laptop one morning, when he was around 18, Jack noticed that his laptop had the super sophisticated form of grammar checking Ginger installed on the computer. He wondered to himself. How did this get here? He realized that it might’ve been his roommate or his brother possibly. He asked both of them via text both of them answered no. He wanted to get to the bottom of how Ginger was installed on his laptop? He also had limited knowledge about Ginger and didn’t know how much to pay for it. He wanted to know if there are any legal type issues that he should look out for too. He found out that there were far and few. So he just saw it as a free gift for now. In the back of his mind though Jack really wanted to get to the bottom of who in the world would go and install a grammar checking software on his computer and how would they be able to get access to his laptop which he thought was locked in his dorm room. So he figured that really narrowed it down to only a few people his roommates or any of the classic roommate friends that were constantly in their dorm rooms. Well thought Jack. He had three roommates and he knew of two of their friends which basically lived in their room with the exception of sleeping. We all know those people I find it hard to believe though that someone of their calibergrammar would go and just install a computer program on someone’s laptop/app it just seems a little strange. So he decided to ask of them it turned out the victim was one of the visitors Roy Hibbertson. You see Roy always came periodically during the week to visit his good friend Sam and Roy seemed to speak a lot about the amazing things that Ginger has done for young people’s ultimate grammar. “ We’ve got to use this technology” Roy would often remark. “ If we don’t it will be a waste of the innovative minds of the inventors of them. So I strongly advocate using Ginger or grammarly. Not only will help give you better overall, grammar, spelling and syntax. “ I would love to get one of those Ginger things” said Jack. He then notices his friend get excited. “ Woot!” he exclaimed. Years go by and Jack still continues to benefit from the amazing benefits that Ginger has to offer. It is amazing how much we can do with technology even with certain limitations we can really benefit the world and make it all a better, happier, and overall more spacious and pleasant place to live. If you have grammar struggles consider Ginger too!

Grammarly Review

Once upon a time theregrammerly was a man named Joe. Joe’s job was to a review for a bunch of different grammar software programs. One Wednesday night his job was do a grammarly review for you guessed it the

grammar checking software called grammarly.

For this Grammarly review Joe started by talking about how grammar checking was different prior to when grammarly first came to the forefront of the grammar checking software world. Back in the day

by that I mean way back in the day people did not write essays or reports even with a computer. They used this invention that the modern day kiddos have probably never heard of. A typewriter. Now what

model of the Mac is that you may ask? The answer to that question is none. This even dates back before we had modern computers and definetly way before grammarly existed. Now granted they had that

massive computer in some big facility back in the 1950’s overall though the typewriter was the norm for writing papers, essays, reports. Etc. etc. This was the toughest way to write on. The typewriter was

basically a machine where you would put in paper and then type onto it. If you made a mistake in grammar checking or spelling though guess what? You couldn’t just do backspace while typing on real legit paper. You had to throw out what

you were working and start again. In some ways this was worse than writing by hand because at least when writing by hand, if you use a pencil you can erase one grammar mistake. Here you had to start allover again. Our methods for writing

stuff up has become progressively better though. Microsoft Word, which started with what was called Word perfect back in the day, began to change this especially between 2000-present day with the grammar and spelling checker built into

the program. This feature isn’t only present on Microsoft word but also any of the Microsoft office programs that allow you to type stuff up (e.g. Powerpoint or some other similar types of programs like that).

 

The problem with these type of programs though is that they are unable to pick up a bunch of different grammar errors (e.g. a lot of times they can’t differentiate when their or grammerlyfixing

there are used in the wrong context although sometimes they do which is weird). Grammarly , which is not that old, is the next stage up from the Microsoft office type checker.

With grammarly it is able to check for a lot of different grammar errors in a ton of different contexts for a variety of errors. This includes grammar, spelling, and a whole lot of

different grammatical issues that only a program with the capabilities of grammarly can achieve. Therefore, in his grammarly review, Joe continued by raving about the different

great featured that grammarly has to offer. He ended the review with a link to grammarly’s website in order so you can find more information about his this grammar checker

software program, grammarly maybe a great option for you too!
