Student and teacher Google Accounts are a part of the Denver School Google Domain--meaning they exist only for teachers and current students.
When a student graduates or a teacher moves on, these Google Accounts will eventually close up. This means that anything in that individual's Google Applications (Mail and Drive) will be inaccessible.
Graduating students and exiting faculty members are encouraged to follow the directions below in order to migrate (or pack-up-and-take-with-them) their Google information.
After years (or months) on Google Drive, you will have accumulated a lot of stuff. Some files are things you imported. Some are things you created. And some are things that have been shared with you. In order to make your life simpler and cleaner, you should learn how to use folders to organize your Google Drive.
In the non-tech world this is the equivalent of putting things in a file cabinet. It's easier to find what you are looking for if you put it in the right folder. Click through the directions and begin organizing your Google Drive.
Creating group contact lists through Google is a great way to manage and organize how you send and share information. Below is a tutorial video on creating contact groups in Google. Why is this helpful? Let's say you want to e-mail all the students in your 4th hour class or all of the teachers in a committee group. You can great a Google Group for "4th Hour" or "DEA Members" and then you can instantly send emails or share documents with this one group instead of having to type in all of their emails.
If you already have a list of contacts in your Address Book application, you can export all those contacts to Gmail.
