21st Century Skills

Students use Google Apps for Education to "turn in" work to their teachers.

The students in grades 3 – 5 are setting up folders in their Google Drives to organize work that they do on the computer. Mrs. Williams, the Media coordinator at Union Elementary and Mrs. Stoltz, Instructional Technology Facilitator, are working with each class in the third, fourth, and fifth grades to assist the students with their Google Accounts at Union Elementary.

In Mrs. Goodman’s class, the students made a folder for the school year. Inside this folder the students created a folder for each subject. The folders were named and a color was chosen for each subject. Mrs. Goodman can create and share assignments with them in the appropriate folder. Then they can access the assignment on their computer. The students can create document, projects, and complete assignments in their Google Accounts and share their work with Mrs. Goodman electronically. Students are able to access their Google Accounts anywhere they have internet access.

Students in Mrs. Goodman’s class were able to practice their multiplication facts and complete a multi-digit multiplication assignment by using links that Mrs. Goodman shared with them in their Math folder. As students become more familiar with the various possible uses of the Google Account and folders they will use them in a variety of ways.
