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...

    Do they have their own blogs? Will this mean they lose their work?

    I think for the blogs you can add anotehr gmail account as an author/admin. It then shouldn't matter if the original account is deleted.


    But for the docs, I'm not sure. If each child creates one folder in their drive and moves everything into it they could then share this with a parent who could then make a copy of the whole folder.
