Google is rolling out a number of new education features to make virtual learning easier, including an Education Mode in Google Lens that lets students click a picture of the problem and offer solutions to it. For STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) homework, students can turn to Google Search that will connect them to potential explanations, providing a step-by-step breakdown for complex math equations and detailed information about underlying concepts.
This is a part of the company’s larger Google for Education project called The Anywhere School, under which it has brought over 50 new features across Meet, Classroom, G Suite, and other products. Students (and parents) can use Google-owned app Socratic and soon, Google Lens too, to take a picture of a problem or equation. Socratic and Lens will provide quick access to helpful results such as step-by-step guides and detailed explainers that will assist in solving the problem
