Ving Announces Partnership with Google Classroom

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Ving, a portfolio company at the Youngstown Business Incubator, announced Monday that its cloud-based platform will be integrated with Google Classroom.

The partnership will allow teachers to organize assignments and create individualized instructions for students. Teachers can also create “digital information packets” with audio, video and text in place of traditional assignments. Packets can also be shared between teachers and results can be tracked over time.

Through Ving, educators can monitor how students are doing the assignments and which parts they may be struggling with.

“At the end of the day it is all about student engagement, and Ving and the Google Classroom ecosystem are a perfect pair,” said Ving CEO Tony DeAscentis in a statement. “The ability to gauge how well students are progressing with given assignments – combined with the ability to create once, share with other educators and use many times – results in an efficient use of the teacher’s time which ultimately means more time with students.”

Google Classroom is a “blended learning platform” that was designed to simplify creating, distributing and grading assignments. Feedback from educators was included in the creation process, DeAscentis noted.

Ving is already used in high schools, including Boardman High School.

“Ving is a game-changer in terms of what it enables me, as a teacher, to do to help students reach their goals and experience success,” said science teacher Chad Deangelo in the release. “Not only are students more engaged with the content I’m teaching, but they’re more engaged with me and I’m more engaged with them.”
