Getting Started with Rocketbook & Google Classroom

How to Assign, Collect and Grade Homework Assignments.



With all the different types of Learning Management Systems (LMS) available to school systems, Google Classroom often stands out as the primary favorite among educators — including Rocketbook Teachers. If you’re an educator looking to streamline your classroom workflow and improve student teachers communication, this system aims to create, distribute and grade assignments in a fully digital way.

Specifically, Google Classroom allows teachers to create classes, post assignments, organize folders, and view work in real-time. Students are then able to access their assignments on any web-based device and turn their work in to their teachers. This system works especially well for remote teaching and connecting with students, virtually.

So, where does Rocketbook come into play? The Rocketbook app works in conjunction with Google Classroom’s mobile app, allowing teachers to annotate student Google Classroom submissions and seamlessly return graded work back to students. Talk about the perfect match!

Follow along for additional details regarding creating assignments, collecting, and grading them all through Google Classroom and the Rocketbook app.
