Leavers and Google Accounts

Started by Claire Buist 25 Oct 2013 1:49pm () Replies (12)

I wonder if anyone can offer suggestions, ideas or epiphenies with regards to Google Apps and students leaving. Our Year 6 children are moving onto schools that are not in the cloud and we will be closing their accounts and removing them from our domain. This is our first set of learners leaving since we have been in the cloud. 

How might schools 'hand over' children's google accounts? We are contemplating making copies and then making their caregivers owners of their docs or putting them onto a USB. 

I'd appreciate any insights...

    These are great ideas.Thanks for bringing it up Claire and for your contributions, Jacinda and Peter. We all want our students to be able to retain ownership of their work but we want to keep them safe. I wonder how others have dealt with the migration issue?

    We have class google accounts with individual blogs maintained under the one account. I was going to try changing the account owner of each at the end of Year 8 - and our students are predominantly 13 at that stage. Not tried it yet!
