Finally! Google has been saying that this feature would be released before school started up in September. Well they have kept their word. As of today, when I logged into Google Classroom, I received a notice of their recent updates, and now parents or guardians can get notifications about student activities.
Here are a few highlights:
- As the teacher in Classroom, I can now invite parents or guardians to get updates. They can elect receive daily or weekly activity updates about their child.
- Once a guardian has been invited and accepted the invitation, the teacher can choose to email just that guardian, or can actually email all guardians of students in a class at the same time.
- Once a guardian is invited by one teacher, they do not have to be invited again by another teacher of the same student.
