Google Docs and Gaggle

Google Docs

Students may share a paper or project with you using Google Docs. It is very important for you to make sure you students are logging in with the Google Docs icon on the SISD homepage. They will use their username and their new password.

To share with a teacher or another student

The share button is in the upper right hand corner of all Google Docs. You will click on the share button and type in the email of the user you wish to share with. We are all in the Seminole ISD domain, so we will all use username@seminole.k12.tx.us

Gaggle

We have our own domain in Gaggle as well. Students should log in to their Gaggle account by going to the icon on the SISD homepage. If they have never used their Gaggle account, it is their username@seminoleisd.gaggle.net and their school password.

Students will access their email from the inbox. Some students get confused when they cannot find their assignments. They must be on the home tab to get their assignment drop boxes, or click on the Assignment Drop Box icon on the left. Click on the Digital Locker icon to access the digital locker. They may upload files to the Digital Locker.
