I’m continuing my preparations for the upcoming year and I’m getting all of my digital files ready. Last year I was trying to de-clutter-ize my classroom so I made digital forms!
I keep both my Parent-Guardian Contact Log and my Behavior Logs in a digital format.
Reasons I love having these in my Google Drive:
– I can easily share these documents with my principal and other educators. This way if they need to know whom I’ve already contacted and for what matters they can see it. I can control who can edit or simply view. It’s great!
– There’s less work required of me when my principal and peers need this documentation. They simply log on and print it out if need be. No more sending to the printer, entering my password, and making sure it gets to the right hands by the right time.
– I can access these files anywhere, anytime! You never know when a student is going to ask for specifics about why s/he was tardy!
– It frees up some desk/file space!
Do you use technology like this to your advantage? Does your school promote the use of technology in this manner? I’d love to hear how you’re using these tools to your benefit.
