"So I am often asked and seldom remember.... "When do I no longer have access to my stuff?"
Here is "The Rule" from the IS/IT department.
"ALL Student accounts MS/Google are deactivated 30 days after the student exit date." However it has been known to happen earlier. Do this ASAP and at School!!!
What does this mean?
It means you will not be able to log-in to computers or access your files 30 days after you leave Granite SD.
Why should you care?
You have worked hard on your school work - you deserve to keep it! You may want it again sometime... Ya never know.
Google Doc uh... Drive is such an eye opening idea it has made purchasing software seem silly. Many or our teachers are already using G-Docs and having students use it too. But what about Google Forms?
First of all What the Heck is Google Drive? It used to be called Google Docs. Create an account at Google and you can also create Docs (Documents) which are similar in all look and feel and can even be downloaded as Microsoft Word. PowerPoint and Excel files. The two BIGGEST reason to use this tool...
Docs is pretty simple and I'd be happy to teach you and your students the details. What are the details? The "fun" part of my job is that so many of these sites change where there links are and what you can do that by the time I type up instructions it may have changed! It is much easier to show you and have you play than to type it out.
LanSchool on a Chrome book does work.
You know and love LanSchool, LanSchool lets you monitor/observe and remote control student computers and see what they are doing. As well as many other features including a web history...
To install it, it must be requested and then the;
LanSchool app gets pushed from the district to student Chromebooks
LanSchool teacher gets installed by STS on teacher PC.
There are some caveats.
I say "No". we are not going to use it here.
I may be wrong and I would be happy to have it pushed out if Chromebook teachers will use it.
Here is link to a presentation for Windows 10. I am not going to recreate anything for our school and this slideshow goes into pretty good detail of information to make you a substantial user of W 10.
Also be sure to click on the "Start Icon" and watch the video of "Whats New". It's a Microsoft sales pitch thing but it is helpful.
Some comments and perspectives from me
There is more but I will stop. Come and talk to me if you want more - or just add your comments below.
To get your scores
Dr. Averett does not want a score he just wants a P or F. So change what you need to in the one column. The example I am looking at are all scores of 10 with 2 empty cells. The two empty cells were student student's who did not test. Leave them blank. I would chose (highlight) the whole column then use "Find" and "Replace" the 10 with a P. Or type a P in the top box and then drag it down. I can show you how if you come on down.
Columns for last name and one for first name are requested but Canvas does not export that way. Your list is sorted by Last, first names in one column.
Sorry there are no pictures to help you out.
Please comment and make suggestions to help everyone out.
Wait. What day was today? Digital Learning Day? And I did nothing for it. Guess I was too busy:
No, I did not have time to do anything for Digital Learning Day. #DLD
Actually I am sorry I missed it. We do have a lot of individual projects going on around the school and I should have taken some pictures of them.

Recently I became a parent... of a Junior High and High School student(s) in Granite School District. As with many secondary schools there were all the 'annoying' disclosure statements that say the same thing and parents need to sign. I am now on the other side of those forms and am so glad that I never really did a normal <disclosure> one when I was teaching. (I never asked for them back or had parents sign them). Seriously what does it matter that a parent "agrees" to how a teacher runs their classroom? I mean yes, it is good to know but teachers have other way of getting my contact info.
The worst part was filling out my contact info for each teacher. I finally just told teachers to contact me through Gradebook or Canvas. Teachers DO NOT NEED to collect that information from parents or students. The school already has it in Canvas and Gradebook (via Discovery). If the parents have not done this they probably are the same type who are not going send back a disclosure statement too. It is also the dreaded double edged sword of teacher don't use it because parents don't register. Well teachers - why should they if you don't use it...?
One teacher asked me how to do that... So here goes. Well maybe this is not the right place for those instructions. I will send instructions to the staff later. BUT - STUDENTS you must set up your profiles in G book and Canvas with your CORRECT e-mail address one that you check. Here is how to do that. I show everyone (students) that comes to the Sophomore Orientation but I know absences happen, and teachers don't bother o come to orientation.
Parents - you need to register through the Parent Portal and you get notified that way. After that is completed teachers will have access to e-mail you through Grade book and canvas. There is no need for teachers to store 200 or so e-mail address for their students and respective parents.
If teachers use Grade book to send e-mail, Grade data can be sent as well. In the Canvas Grades teachers can message those who have or have not turned in the assignment. Teachers don't even need to know or see the actual addresses in the e-mail.
It is so much easier for both parties to NOT have to collect and store individual e-mails. Let Canvas / Gradebook and Discovery do their job.
Teacher if you insist on collecting student parent contact info on your own at least use a Google Form so that YOU don't fill up your address book/Contacts with hundreds of address that you probably will never use.
