After running this script you can now easily share all information/assignments digitally; essentially eliminating the paper trail of passing out assignments, collecting the work, grading the work, passing it back only to have most students discard it as trash. The organization that this creates for the teacher and the student is amazing. Each teacher can essentially have a folder for each class and when they click on that folder they will find a folder for each student that has their work turned into it. This has been a huge help for classrooms that have embraced technology during our first year as a 1:1 school. The classrooms that have used this script have really had only positive things to say about it and in future PD sessions/Summer Training Sessions will focus on getting more and more of our staff members to start using this exciting and FREE tool from Google.
One way we have made set up a little easier at our school is to create a report from our student information system (Skyward) that exports the students' names and email addresses into an Excel file. This way the entry of names and email addresses is as easy as copy and paste! gClass Folders really can help organize and increase efficiency for any classroom!
