How Google Classroom Is Changing Teaching: Q&A With Researcher Carlo Perrotta

Press/Media: Research

Description

Since its release in 2014, the learning-management platform Google Classroom has quickly become one of the more popular online tools in K-12 schools. Adoption ramped up dramatically with the mass switch to virtual instruction that followed COVID-19-related school closures in March: This spring, Bloomberg News reported that the number of active Classroom users worldwide had doubled, to 100 million.

So how is this increasingly pervasive educational platform changing teaching and learning?

The effects are subtle but significant, argue a team of researchers led by Carlo Perrotta, a senior lecturer in digital literacies at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
