Students recreating pre-Columbian cities in #Minecraft, Cool! Students TNT-ing each other's creations, not cool. Problem > Solution

Was asked by a colleague, "If my students "turn in" a screen shot [via Google Classroom] where they have solved some math problems, can I annotate on their screenshot and then return it to them?"

Suggestions?

I've used Skitch in the past, but not sure if it's the most effective means. Please advise,

Export to Notability to annotate and then push it back into Classroom. But I like +Elizabeth McCarthy idea of using gMath because of the built in symbols.

Letting students play on their iPads after completing a worksheet is not integration.

It's a teacher's responsibility to teach students how to use technology as a powerful tool at school.  Feel free to share my site on how teachers can transform their learning environments in some pretty incredibly powerful ways! https://mrcssharesease.wordpress.com

Being of a former AVID school, funding was pulled only after a year, this is such a light in the darkness. Thank you for the share and I will pass this on to the rest of the AVID (former) teachers to continue the AVID expectations as we develop our GAFE.

At school, teachers are irate. They want to take #iPads away. Say kids are just playing games. I'm saddened. We need to reflect.

Help, please. I can't find the "email teacher" click in Google Classroom. The Help menu says it's there, but where?

Note: I'm looking via mobile/iPad

Thanks,

+Ricardo Higuera, the envelope icon is available in Chrome or Safari on the iPad. Your students should see it in the Classroom banner next to the teacher's name (below the title of the class).

If it really isn't there, can you snap a screenshot of what it looks like?

Reason versus emotion, they never meet on common ground.
