'Classroom' from Google ...
https://classroom.google.com/signup
Classroom is a new (May 2014) product in Google Apps for Education that lets teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease.
Classroom was designed hand-in-hand with teachers to help them save time, keep classes organized, and improve communication with students.
Classroom weaves together Google Docs, Drive and Gmail to help teachers create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently, and communicate with their classes with ease. And it lets students organize their work, complete and turn it in, and communicate directly with their teachers and peers.
Classroom helps teachers create and collect assignments paperlessly. When teachers create assignments, they can choose to share a single document, or automatically make a copy for each student. They can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback.
Classroom automatically creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student. Students can easily see what’s due on their Assignments page, so they can stay on top of their work.

Standalone Docs and Sheets Apps for iOS and Android
http://on.mash.to/1mhKwko
Google Launches Standalone Docs and Sheets Apps for iOS and Android
Why standalone? Because Google already offers the Drive app, which lets you store and manage your files as well as create and edit documents and spreadsheets as well as view presentations and PDFs.
Now, the company is splitting those functionalities in a separate app for each purpose. You can now get them in the App Store (Docs, Sheets) and on Google Play (Docs, Sheets).
And if you just continue using Drive for editing documents and spreadsheets, you will be prompted to download the standalone apps."

Doctopus, A Google Apps Script for Teachers

Doctopus, A Google Apps Script for Teachers
Doctopus is an Apps Script designed to function like your teacher-helper in the room. It's a way of automating document creation, revision and management, so as a teacher you can spend more time on instruction and less time on the cumbersome administrative tasks that make classrooms so inefficient.
For the newcomer, an Apps Script is probably better named an "Apps Extension." It's a program that extends the functionality of the Google Apps environment.
Just launch a Spreadsheet from Google Drive, go to the Tools-->Script Gallery, and you can install a variety of Apps Scripts in one click. Look in the "Featured" section and you’ll see that 5 of the 10 scripts currently featured by Google were produced by New Visions, a very big honor for us.

Google in Education [Report pdf]
We produced this booklet for educators and the people who support them, to share the educational activities we are passionate about and elaborate on why we are committed to this work.
This is not a typical “annual report,” in that it is a document that we hope educators will use year round to spark new ideas and get inspiration.
Inside, we highlight the many accomplishments made by teachers, students, and organizations using Google resources. We think it’s important to showcase what we have seen work in educational technology, as well as how we’ve made improvements based on feedback and reflection.

Why Schools are Turning to Google Apps
http://mashable.com/2010/04/28/schools-google-apps
Why Schools are Turning to Google Apps
April 2010 the entire public school system of Oregon (USA) embraced Google Apps.
400,000 Students, teachers, and administrators will have access to a common e-mail and chat system, cloud-based collaboration tools, and a robust multimedia streaming service.
Traditionally, statewide adoptions of any kind in education are hotly contested, with the most minute details up for extended debate.
But the case for Google Apps in education is compelling in many ways. We interviewed the architects of this plan, as well as others who use Google (Google) in the classroom, and we’ve highlighted the three major benefits:
1) It saves schools money;
2) It boosts academic performance and motivation, and
3) It prepares students for digital communication in the real world.
