Did some perfunctory poking around about GoogleClassroom. Seems like nothing too unexpected (that doesn’t mean bad): sounds like they’re bringing a structure to Docs and other apps that will let teachers organize into classes, facilitate communication, etc.

They are offering a pilot request, if teachers want to try it out in the next month or two, though the implication is that only certain teachers will be given access (and I didn’t see any info on how those decisions will be made).

In any case, if you’re interested, here’s the link: https://classroom.google.com/signup. I did sign up for it, so we’ll see what comes of it.
