For anyone who is not familiar with Kaizena, it is a Website and Google Add-on that allows individuals to share documents and give feedback through text and voice options. Teachers can create shared documents for the entire class, small groups, or individual students. The program also allows the teacher to create a database of video lessons to suggest to students as a way to differentiate instruction.
While Kaizena has always worked well with Google Docs, it has not been able to add documents turned into Google Classroom and add them to your conversation within Kaizena. Instead, teachers and/or students were having to add each document individually to the Kaizena conversations. This is no longer the case. Yesterday, Kaizena released a statement explaining that it now works with Google Classroom. Here is the part of the statement that explains how it will work.
“When you sync your Kaizena account with Google Classroom, Kaizena will set up a group for each of your classes, import all your students, and (optionally) import any assignments your students have already submitted. Then, when your students submit new work on Classroom, it will automatically get added to your conversation with them on Kaizena.”
