Start the school year off with a fun and interactive ‘vacation survey’ to find out where your new class traveled/vacationed over the summer.
Have the students respond via a Google Form, like the one shown below. Then, ask students to share new information they learned about the places they traveled. Turn their responses into an interactive map!
Then turn the Google Sheet created by the form into an interactive map in Google MyMaps.
As we head into the middle of July and summer vacations, I thought this would be a good time to share some tips for organizing Google Drive. This is a perfect rainy day activity when you have a few moments (easier said than done).
Most of us (myself included) probably didn’t start off with organizational “best practices,” like naming conventions and folder structure when we started working on Google Drive. Over the years I’ve organized Google Drive as I went along.
We’ll go over a few tips that you can do to start organizing Drive. Not all of these will work for you and your preferences. Your organization really boils down to what works for you, your personal preferences, and organization techniques.
My tips for organizing Google Drive summary:
1. Folder structure
2. File naming convention
3. Color code folders
4. Organize important shared docs/files
5. Utilize the info button/icon and use sort functions
Additionally, below is a short demo video for Archiving a Class in Google Classroom. This is a super simple process, but worth a look if you’re not sure where to start.
