Tips of the Week: Paperless Classroom!
We recently sent out a survey to parents pertaining to the freshman 1:1 rollout. Multiple parents expressed that they would like to see paperless classrooms so they did not have to print their child's work at home. The chromebooks right now are difficult to connect for printing because we have limited access to chrome extensions (they can request to add them). Many printers have various extensions, etc. so students with the freshman chromebooks really cannot print from them at home. With all of the printing issues we have experienced this year, I thought it would be a great time to talk about a paperless classroom!

How can I go paperless anyway?? G Suite (Google Apps for Education) is an awesome way to go paperless!
Here is an overview of G Suite Applications.
- Google Classroom! - Create an assignment (make a “Copy” for each student), students “turn in” the assignment electronically, you can comment and grade, and “Return Work” to them… all without paper!
- Forms- Create paperless class forms, surveys, class voting, formative check-ins, follow up quiz to flipped lessons, and many more!
