  • wifi connection - "Forget network". Reconnect.

Step 2: Tap “WiFi”

Step 3: Tap the “i” next to “Lindale_ISD”

Step 4: Tap “Forget network”

Step 5: Tap “Forget”

Step 6: Go back in and choose the Lindale_ISD network

Google Classroom HInts

  • Be sure all students have downloaded the Chrome app from the LHS App Catalog.
  • Make sure students go into the app and have 'synced' their data to their iPad.
  • All Google products must be loaded individually from the app catalog to operate correctly with Google Classroom.

Work "disappearing" when submitting? A few things to try:
  1. Was the "save" check mark checked before submission?
  2. Did student tap "Go Back to Google Classroom" (upper left) to make submission?
  3. Was the Doc correctly opened from Google Classroom?
  4. Did student "attach" or "create" Doc to assignment correctly?

Google Classroom Not Connecting/Updating

Option 1

Restart the device and see if the assignment reloads

Option 2

Follow the instructions under “Wifi/Connectivity issues”

Option 3

Instruct students to disconnect from other devices (phones, etc.) so there is no bandwidth issue

Possible Work-Around

Go to the Google Classroom website through Chrome instead of the App

There's an app for that! LHS Instructional Technology Quick Reference List

Heads Up Hint

Need students to download an app?

Announce a day or two before app is needed or post in Google Classroom. Have students download app before class to avoid slow down loads or bogging down during the loading process and class delays waiting for apps to load.
