  • Students access Google Classroom through the web on iPad. This means that no additional apps need to be installed or updated.
  • Any assignment created and distributed by the teacher that is a Google Document or Spreadsheet will automatically bump students to the Google Docs or Spreadsheet app for completion when they click on their individual file within the Google Classroom web interface.
  • Any PDF that is distributed to students as an assignment through Google Classroom will automatically open in the Google Drive app when clicked on within Google Classroom. Students can then use the “open in” function to send the PDF to any app – such as Explain Everything or Notability – needed to complete the assignment.
