Doctopus and Goobric- Create Folders AND Grade with Rubrics- Within Drive!
Here is a very simple overview of how to set up folders within Doctopus. For more information or help, take a look at the above video or contact us in the library!
Why use Google Forms?
- Too many emails with links to Prezi's, Glogs, online magazines or other media? Have students submit using Google Forms. All links will be in one place- plus they are time stamped. You can even embed the response sheet into onCampus for other students to view.
- Give assessments
- Have students sign up for group work, select topics, pick appointment slots and so on using the Form Add-On Choice Eliminator. When students select a choice, it is eliminated from the form so no one else can select. (click the puzzle piece to see all add-ons in the new Google Forms)
- Forms can also be used to easily (and discretly) collect data on student observations. Set up a folder on your iPad with a form for each student. All student data is in one place- handy for comment writing or meetings with parents.
Poetry and Art!
Thanks to Arnie for sharing this resource during our last PD session!
Visual Poetry is a web tool that can be used to turn poetry into art. Short stories, historical speeches, reflections- let your students be creative! (no student accounts needed)
Google Drive Tip

Want to add reminders to your Google Calendar? Click on the day you want to set the reminder- when the Event box pops up, click Reminder. It will appear as a blue bar across the top of your day. When complete, simply click the blue bar and click Mark as Done. (This can also be done on Android and iPad apps- tap the finger with ribbon icon)
Google Drive Tip
- Know the type of file? Click in the search box and a list of file types appears
- Use the advanced search- click the drop down arrow and narrow by file type, date modified, owner or who you shared the file with
