Google Classroom Join Code

    As a tech trainer, I am currently supporting staff, but the 4 of us are also assisting parents and students on the community hotline and email. Yesterday, I had a few calls about Google Classroom join codes not working and figured out that the code had a 1, i, or l that all looked the same so I made a quick video showing how to reset the join code to avoid this problem. You can do it multiple times. Also can be helpful if you think students might be "sharing" your join code. Once your class is in, reset it.

    Really helpful! Thanks for sharing!

    Something else we discovered was the invite students option is super easy and streamlined, now. You can copy and paste the student usernames into the add box, and then when a student logs in to Google Classroom, there is a blue Join button from the class you invited them to. All they have to do is click on that button and they're in! This worked really well for our younger students. We simply downloaded their usernames from the admin console and copied and pasted in.
