KINGSFORD, Mich. (WLUC) — 20 Google researchers traveled to Dickinson County to conduct research this week.
Google staff said Breitung Township Schools is the only district in UP participating in the Google Classroom pilot program.
Students and staff test out new program features while researchers take notes. Google Classroom has over 100 million users and the research team is there to identify any issues. Technology in the classroom has become a necessity.
“Since COVID and the adoption of new technologies, teachers are using them more and more. For us, it’s about creating the technology to meet their current needs as the landscape changes,” said Amanda Rosenburg, team leader and head of research at Google Classroom.
Rosenburg graduated from Kingsford High School in 2002. The research team will continue to collect data and observe the students until Friday. Then they will analyze their research and make improvements to Google Classroom.
