Google acquired Workbench, a Baltimore-based company that provides an online library of lessons and projects, organized by subject and grade level, that educators can use in their classrooms. It also offers a programming interface where students can do coding exercises and even control bluetooth-connected devices that are integrated with the platform. The two companies are no strangers: Workbench has been integrated with Google Classroom, which allows educators to assign Workbench projects to students, and track, review and assess their progress. Claiming more than 30 million users, Google Classroom is currently one of the most widely used online educational tool, which lets teachers, students and parents manage class assignments, quizzes and discussions.
