Help! I am using Doctopus to create new individual documents for a roster and it keeps getting stuck on the second row. The documents are created in the folder, but in the spreadsheet the file key is never created. Any suggestions?

Keep your eyes out for our Innovation Incubator application to participate later this spring!

Welcome to week 7 of our 9-week Google Certified Educator Level 1 Study Group! This week we are focusing on Facilitating Group Work, which is unit 12 in the materials found linked below. 

In these Unit 12 you will learn: 
- How to create meaningful and effective collaboration in the classroom
- How to support collaborative learning with Google Docs and Drive
- How to assign and collect assignments using Classroom
- The ins-and-outs of using Google Docs to review group contributions
- How Google Docs can support the writing and revision process
- Best practices for driving discussion inside and outside of the classroom
- How to choose the best tool to support synchronous and asynchronous discussion
- To facilitate group work with a range of Google Tools

Here are some questions for you to consider as you get ready to start the week:
1. How has professional collaboration helped you grow and improve as a teacher?
2. When you have had students working in collaborative groups, what made it a successful learning experience?
3. Think about collaboration in your workplace and in other workplaces. How will the activities in your classroom prepare your students for that world?
4. How might the features of Google Sheets, Forms, Keep, and Calendar help your students be successful in group work?

This is the sweet goodness of Google for Education! The ability for students to work online collaboratively makes things possible that weren’t possible before.  Looking forward to learning with the group this week!
