It's constantly being updated with new features coming in August.

Here's an example.
Accessibility Features on Chromebooks - Slide Deck (ScotlandLouise)
Teacher Tools Digital is great for language teachers.
Excellent Videos by Russell Stannard which shows its full potential.
Great for getting younger pupils familiar with digital drawing tools.
4 free examples that can be assigned to Google Classroom.
Wakelet now has the option to collaborate on a collection. (free)
(this works really well with Chromebooks)
Pupils are given a code to join so that they can add their 'text responses'
These all appear on the teacher's screen , in addition to the other students' screens.
Pupils can only change or delete their own text response.
Brilliant for checking understanding or building knowledge through quick feedback.
Better still they, or the teacher, can click on a response and it will open in 'Immersive Reader' allowing it to be displayed large and be read out. They can also highlight grammar or use the optional picture dictionary.
Draftback extension for Chrome (works in Google Docs)
If you use Google Docs... watch your pupils writing - speeded up.
See how they edited and changed the document.
Really useful for getting feedback on how they write.
