Whether you have a myriad of student assignments to sort, or homework galore, staying organized can be crucial. These are some basic tips on how to do so.
1. Setting up Google Drive
First you are going to want to know how to properly utilize google drive and their file system to have a secure online storage location.It can also be used to share information with others. A guide on how to do so is located here (written by Assist student Nick Manning – @ManningHelpDesk).
2. Utilizing Google Classroom
Google Classroom automatically creates folders specified to keeping papers and tests from each individual class. (This only works if you are the teacher in that class ) but it will significantly reduce the clutter involved with keeping track of assignments.
*NOTE*: When students submit assignments through classroom it automatically adds that assignment to the classes folder.
*NOTE*: Google Classroom also allows students receive to an individual copy of the file that they can change.
3. Using Google Keep To “Keep” Track
A great tool for tracking list can easily be accomplished by “Google Keep.” Earlier this year I completed a blog about google keep and how it can make life easier for yourself as a teacher and for students.. It is located here.
4. Grading Tests or Quizzes
Google Forms is a lifesaver for grading as it saves you time on multiple choice, true or false, and matching questions. It can also keep track of each students essay questions right on google forms. Max Cashio (@CashioHelpDesk) also incorporated Flubaroo which he wrote about in his blog post.
