- Once a school or district runs the Google Classroom Connector in their Google Cloud environment, they will be able to bring all of the Google Classroom data to one place in BigQuery
- It will also be able to gain access to a variety of Google Classroom data
InnovateEDU has announced that it is offering a free, open-source Google Classroom Connector to any school or district that utilises G Suite for Education. InnovateEDU developed a data extraction tool that can be used in a school’s Google Cloud environment that makes sure that data is secure and interoperable.
InnovateEDU’s executive director, Erin Mote said, “The nation’s schools, districts, and teachers are doing remarkable work to serve all students during this disaster. InnovateEDU believes that data interoperability and real-time data insights provided by this tool can make a hard job a little bit easier. Our development team and organization have worked with partners to make this free, open-source, and accessible to all schools and districts.” InnovateEDU partnered with three LEAs – KIPP Bay Area, Great Oaks Schools, and Brooklyn Laboratory Charter School – to provide feedback on and test the connectors.
Google Classroom data
It said that once a school or district runs the Google Classroom Connector in their Google Cloud environment, they will be able to bring all of the Google Classroom data to one place in BigQuery. It will also be able to gain access to a variety of Google Classroom data ranging from the percentage of students completing assignments or the number of classes that have been created.
It will be able to copy and use InnovateEDU’s Google Classroom report templates in their own Data Studio instance and maintain data securely in their district’s Google Cloud environment and allows administrators and teachers to gain meaningful insights into Google Classroom.
Megan Benay, National Director of Inclusive Education and Data Systems & Strategy for the Great Oaks Foundation said, “We are honoured to be part of this collaborative effort to make critical information from Google Classroom more widely available and accessible to schools throughout the country during this unprecedented time of need. “
