My Files

Earlier in the year, Susan's choir students asked her to start using eBackpack. When she agreed, they were very specific in how they wanted her to setup the choir eBackpack. They asked for folders. They wanted well organized structure.

So, what can we learn from our students? They want organization. If you've been using eBackpack, this time of year is a good time to look at your eBackpack. Do you use folders, or do your students at this point in the year have to scroll through 20 to 30 documents to find the most recent assignment?

Folders help students find what they need. Let's give them what they need.
