Every year about this time, the yearbook committee would send out the email requesting our class photos. Before Google and I became best friends, getting those photos sent in a timely manner was a nightmare! It was either put them on a disc, a USB flash drive (neither of which I was very skilled) or spend and enormous amount of time tediously emailing a few photos at a time. Fast forward to today, with Google. Now snapping, storing, sharing, and organizing photos it is SO easy! Are you the Yearbook Coordinator? This is especially for you!
First, organize your Drive. Organizing often depends upon the project… however, here is one scenario that may work:
Create a folder in your Drive and name it by your school site. Within that folder, create a folder for each classroom. Keep the naming conventions simple and consistent. (Example: Teacher Last Name, Rm#) Be sure to share each of the classroom folders with the classroom teacher giving he/she permission to edit so adding pictures is enabled. With any device capable of sharing via the Drive App you can now take pictures and share! It is quick and easy… see directions below:
