Create a paperless classroom by automatically create shared folders for students
For help from other users I created a g+ Community Specifically for the script: gClassFolders Community
(or search gclassfolders from the template gallery)
also available in the script gallery under gClassFolders
I want to thank Dee for creating the SLAM video.
This script was created to accompany the Google Class Model that I recommend for teachers to help organize the classroom:
Google Classroom Model
Each Classroom set up a Class Edit, Class View, and Dropbox folder. Make sure to include both the name of the student and the class so that multiple classrooms are not using the same naming convention.
Class Edit ~ These will be files that are editable by everyone in the class
Example: Group Assignments
Class View ~ These will be files that are only viewable by everyone in the class
Example: Syllabus, worksheet templates
Student Dropbox ~ This is only between the teacher and the particular student.
Example: Handing in homework
Formative Assessment can be provided through the use of comments within the page. Teachers and students can choose to be notified via email when new comments are added and view them as a stream within the document itself.
