Looking for input.... I am a third grade teacher and offered to help a teacher incorporate more technology content into her lessons. As tech. integrators I was wondering to what extent are you designing for teachers? Do you give suggestions only, design an entire lesson and the teacher just runs with it or somewhere in the middle? What if the teacher has no knowledge of how to use the app so they can apply it to their lesson? As coaches how do you go about starting? Just curious..... thank you....

Hi everyone - I have been using Google forms and making a scan code so students can scan directly without having to go to their email which has been temporarily suspended because of inappropriate usage. Just a few weeks ago, before suspension, accessing google forms via a scan code was not a problem. However, now the students cannot access the scan code without asking them to sign in. What am I doing wrong? I have googled this issue and tried many different ways but cannot pinpoint what is wrong. Is this now a result of their emails being locked down by our IT? They still have access to google drive.
Many thanks for your help.
