Sharing photos using GAFE to personal student folders

Started by Lavinia Robyns 16 Mar 2015 2:37pm () Replies (11)

We have just moved to using Hapara teacher dashboard with individual student accounts for our year 5/6 students. How are other schools sharing photos online so that individual students can incorporate them in their Google Apps/Docs etc? We have a cloud-based storage solution when they are at school but we probably need a place they can access out of school too.  How do other schools manage this?

Thanks for any suggestions.

    Thanks for the suggestion - so you have the images saved in the folder in your drive (called room 11) which you share via TD email or smartcopy?

    Yes we do encourage students to access work at home through GAFE but I wasn't sure how to share a folder of photos so all students can access this central folder (without using smartcopy in teacher dashboard).

    Thanks everyone for your advice. This is the email I've sent to my teachers outlining the steps. I hope this captures it all!

    • Create a folder called PHOTOS in your class Google drive (Room 32) and upload the pictures to this folder (organised in sub-folders e.g. Maritime Museum Trip etc). 
    • Share that folder by email with all the students in your class. Teacher dashboard has a list of emails you can copy and paste (from class info - scroll down).
    • The students can add that folder to their own drive.
    • Any photos you upload to that folder are now also sitting in their drive.
