Copy Your GAFE Drive Files to a Personal Google Account • Talk Tech With Me

You've just taken a job in another district or you are leaving your school. You're wondering if there is a way to copy Google Drive files from your GAFE account to a personal Google account?

Drive Migrator creates a copy of all your selected files and folders and recreates them in your personal account. No downloads. No uploads. No conversions. Just pure copy-behind-the-scenes-bliss.

To date, there are 180 classrooms from 24 countries around the world who are signed up and want to connect their classrooms to other students throughout the year. If you’re interested, you can sign up to connect here and then search all the classrooms who have signed up here.

Making Lessons With New Google Sites

Lesson planning and sharing content materials can all be done in one place with the New Google Sites. With so many cool tools and activities for learners to explore, they need a place that makes sense of it, one that tells the story to which we all want to connect. Embed YouTube, Google Slides, Docs, Forms, and so much more. This post explores my design choices that aim to make routines out of the Understanding by Design curriculum model our school employs. Additionally, I include ideas about inquiry-based learning and the use of projects for learning that contribute to projects of learning.
