Watch Alice Keeler and Sam Kary from New EdTech Classroom for a presentation, sponsored by Schoolytics, to go over our favorite Add-ons that are helpful for Google Classroom teachers. Add-ons allow you to increase the functionality of Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Forms, and more!
Add-ons for Google Classroom Teachers
Google Classroom teachers are users of Google Workspace for Education. But they also have some unique capabilities such as being able to easily create a copy per student and all student work is saved in a folder in Google Drive. Our list of Add-ons are official Add-ons you can install in the Google Marketplace.
However, I (Alice Keeler) have also coded several unofficial Add-ons that are specifically designed for Google Classroom teachers. Reuse GC: alicekeeler.com/reusegc allows you to reuse multiple Google Classroom assignments at once and more! First Slide: alicekeeler.com/firstslide allows you to push and pull to individual student Google Slides. Pull the Paragraph: alicekeeler.com/pulltheparagraph saves you hours by allowing you to read all student work from individual Google Docs all at once.
Schoolytics Adds Onto Google Classroom
If you are a teacher using Google Classroom be sure to log in for your FREE Schoolytics.com account. Schoolytics makes your Google Classroom experience even better. I teach high school math and I save so many hours each week by going to the Schoolytics dashboard and selecting “Start grading.” If a student has turned in work 3 months late.. it was hard to know. However, Schoolytics provides me with a list, sorted by timestamp, of what has been turned in. I am much better prepared when I have meetings with parents or counselors about a student. Schoolytics allows me to send students a list of their missing assignments. Create customizable progress reports.

I work part-time as a developer for Schoolytics. This allows me to have time to create free resources for busy teachers. I take my experiences of teaching as well as suggestions from my daily interactions with educators and try to design helpful solutions.
