Topic: 10:15- 11:00 Drop by info session


Teacher(s): Terese Dolan


Key Notes (Summary of Interesting Points):

Google Classroom Question:
How can students still access their documents after it has been turned in? 
They CANNOT (at least not until you return it to them).
What should I do?
IF you want them to have access to the document at the same time that you can view it then do NOT have the student’s turn in the assignment! As YOU (the teacher) has created the assignment YOU retain ownership of the assignment and it has already been shared with you; THEREFORE they do not have to turn it in! Just go to your Folder in your Google Drive (The folder that is associated with the assignment) and look at the document there to see what the student is doing.  As you are the owner, you still maintain rights to revision history, and all aspects of the document!
