It's helpful to have a repository of VizZle lessons available to all teachers in a district. One way to achieve this is to create a generic student account which has folders to store lessons.
- The first step is to create the generic student account in Teach. Click here for instructions on how to create a new student. Be sure to give this generic student account a recognizable name, like "[School District Name] Lessons."
- Create folders and sub-folders for the student, to organize the shared lessons. For example, you could create a "Math" folder, with a sub-folder called "Addition." Click here for instructions on how to create folders. (Please note, it is not necessary to make these folders accessible to students.)
- Add lessons you want your colleagues to have access to. You can copy lessons you've found in the Library to the student's folders, or you can copy from your My Lessons or other folder. Click here for instructions on how to assign lessons from the Library.
- Ask your colleagues to add this student to their roster. Once your respective student is ready with lessons, let your colleagues know the student's name so they can go to Teach and add the student to their personal roster. Click here for instructions on adding an existing student from the district roster.
Once your colleagues have added this student to their roster, they will have access to the existing lessons in the student's folders, as well as any lessons you add later on.
Your colleagues can also contribute to this repository themselves by copying lessons to the student's folder(s).
