So I have 4 chromebooks in my class. Do I have to give all my students gmail accounts? How would I set this up?

I don't think our disctrict give students email accounts at all.

HELP????

I reallly was interesting in doing some sharing on google drive.

We have a set of chromebooks for our school. Since I teach 3rd grade, I didn't want to give (and keep track of) individual emails and passwords so I created a class email and password. I then set up all the chromebooks with that email. So much simpler because they can help each other log in or two or three kids can log all of them in for me!!

I'm certainly not a pro but ...

First, definitely check with your district/school/parents before doing this though. What grade do you teach?

Second, If they don't have gmail accounts and you want them to be able to log in and use the internet and common apps (such as docs, sheets, slides etc.) and be able to save it to one account, you could have a class gmail account just so they could get to those. You could then have the kids duplicate/rename the document for their work.

I teach 3rd and my students all have gmail accounts from our school. The majority of my students have no problems remember their username and password. I do have them all printed and placed on a binder ring if they don't know it (which is usually only for the first month of school). We use our logins frequently!

That sounds like a great idea. So just make a generic gmail account?

So then I can put all four books in a center and they can all be logged in.

AWESOME!!!! I really was uncomfortable giving them a gmail account anyway. I teach 3rd grade and would rather not.


AmiSue can you share some ways you used your chromebooks?

Chromebooks Only

My district removed out computer lab for this coming school year and switched to all chromebooks. We were sent home with one for the summer to practice with (I'm using it right now), but I find it very limiting. All our students will have gmail accounts, but I don't know what to do with them. Our big 3rd grade project was a brochure using Publisher, but I don't see how that is going to happen.

I look forward to hearing how others have used their chromebooks in 3rd grade.

Check the Google apps! There may be a publisher type app for Google.

Is your school a Google Apps school? If it is then your students probably already have accounts. They don't need email to use Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc. - they just need a Google Account.

Brochures

You could use a Table in Google Docs or Google Drawing or Google Slides (Presentations) to create a brochure. There is no text flow between columns like there is in Publisher but it would work.

Here's a link to some templates for brochures:Another option is to have your site admin allow installation of apps from the Google Apps Marketplace and to install and use LucidPress

(3rd grade). We use Google Drive . I share individual folders with them where they store their writing in. Since I created and shared the folder, I can see it from my end and edit with them and print it. I can comment on what they do. They can also share their writing with other students and do shared work or just have the other student read and comment.

I can share links to internet sites easy as well.

This last year we learned to use Google Classroom which is awesome. We used this for them to do read and response assignments and assessments. We then learned to use Doctopus and Gubric to attach a rubric to and score it into a spreadsheet. This took a lot of practice as I'm not very techy. I leaned on my fellow techy teachers .

I love how I can incorporate the chromebooks into my workshop easily.

I love using google drive. My students share all their writing with me. I can review it and comment on it on my computer whenever I want. We also do quite a bit with google slides and google forms (part of drive). There is an app, I can't remember what it's called off-hand, that scores any multiple choice things in google form, so you can create a quiz, have them take it, and it will be scored for you.

Flubaroo is an "Add-On" in Google Sheets that will grade quizzes taken in Forms. The Forms app automatically creates a Google Sheet of the responses; then you use Flubaroo to score the responses.

The answers do have to be precise--the app recognizes only one correct answer. So if the "key" says the answer is "true," then "T" and "True" both would be marked as wrong. It's best for multiple-choice quizzes with radio button choices (versus fill-in-the-blank answers).

Chromebooks in 3rd Grade

I also teach 3rd grade and last year we were given Chromebooks in the the spring. My school assigns each student an email that they use to log in. I'm looking forward to becoming more familiar with using Google docs and other apps. Thanks for the tips. I'll be checking back...
